- Sophie & Chloe (Bella RIP 2019)
So it's only been six months since Sophie had entropion surgery and now we find out she's going to need patella surgery as well. She's always been able to slip her kneecap back in (or the vet or I have been able to help her do it) and on Friday she began limping a bit on her hind leg, right side. Took her in on Tuesday and sure enough our vet said it is pretty freely slipping back and forth. She doesn't act in pain but definitely is treating it gingerly. She is on some anti-inflammatory meds and I just gave her tramadol last night because she seemed a little worn out. Anyhow, I am just looking for any info from people who have gone through this with their babies and how the recouping has gone. Vet didn't act like it had to be done any time too soon, so we are also trying to make things better by starting her on glucosamine w/chondroitin, the same stuff Bella has been on for years. Thank you all!
