Bella And Her Luxating Patellas

Organized by: Michelle Pannone

Michelle's Photo


My 4 year old dog Bella is my 2 year old daughter Isabella's best friend. Except, they have problems keeping up. Bella can not jump, and when she runs within seconds she is on 3 legs limping. She has floating knee caps called "luxating patellas" that do not stay in place and needs surgery to be correct her one knee (grade 2/3) knee to stay in place. The surgery would prevent early deterioration of the bones from the rubbing, early arthritius and prevent her last years from being pain filled. She is a wonderful dog and I could in no way let her suffer as she grew older. This $6,000 would drastically change her life (Chihuhua's live for a long time up to 15 years) and fix one of her knees. She does have the condition in both rear knees, however, only one is problmatic. Her other knee is a lesser grade and that usually is very comfortable. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
