Patellar Luxation in Dogs
Patellar luxation is a common condition in dogs of all ages. It occurs when the dog’s kneecap, called the patella, dislocated from its normal position in the groove of the thigh bone (femur). This condition can be painful and restrictive for dogs, so it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible.
