    Default Knee cap slipping in and out of place

    Does anyone know of a treatment beside surgery that might not work for a EB kneecap slipping in and out of place? My poor Bully is holding up his hind leg constantly now which tells the vet and I it's out and doesn't slip back in place. He doesn't appear to be in pain but eventually he's going to be tired of walking on 3 legs. I think I'm bothered more by it than he is. LOL

    No experience with knee cap slipping. Abby has had problems with her knee ligaments and limps when she over does it. I hope you can find an alternative treatment. There are vets who do acupuncture, I don't know if this would help.

    My little Grizzly had that same problem and my vet told me to put him on a diet and told me to just exercise him daily going up a hill and down very slowly and within 2 weeks he was fine. Not a problem now.

    Busters has the same problem. When it pops out we just make him sit down and it pops back in. Once I had to pop it back in myself, but it was easy. I just very gently pulled it like the vet showed me. We rested his leg for 6 weeks (in his pen -- no activity at all) and it was much better. It isn't perfect but now he can run and play and have fun again and we are just keeping an eye to see how often it slips out. So far only a couple times in over a month. The vet told us that surgery is optional. If we think the knee is negatively affecting his life then we should operate, but if not, then it doesn't hurt him. Sorry about your pup!
