So my dachshund Jazz is having surgery to correct his LP. since I had heard from one of the vets I worked with that jazz has a luxating patella I had kept him from doing strenuous things to keep him from putting pressure and stress on his knee. My vet told me it was a mild case of LP. Last Sunday jazz had slipped and fell on his bad leg. And of course that had to happen a day before his recheck. My Dr said that his knee is so bad that it won't even stay in place and that he needs surgery asap. I guess that fall was so extreme to have his LP go from mild to severe in a month. His surgery is on Monday. I hope everything goes smoothly as I will be watching the surgery.
