Hi! Have any of you dealt with luxating patella? My boy injured his leg when jumped down the furniture and now his knee is luxating. Visited vet, prescribed glucosamine Glyco Flex 3 and Evaxia and Oleoderm fish oil. Almost 2 weeks gone and he is still limping. Visited another vet who is surgeon, he told that it is stage 3 of luxating patella for right leg and 1 stage for the left leg and said that he reccomends to do surgery. We agreed that we will wait 1 month and then deside what to do. I hope his knee will heal itself, because I don't want to do surgery, because Dorro is exteamly active cat and it would be soooo hard to keep him calm after the surgery. He would lick stiches and would like to run and I would need to keep him in cage for days where he would suffer mentally I think. Any advices? Have any of you done surgery like that? How was recovery process? Or knee healed by itself? Right know I'm giving him relaxing pills because he runs and jumps as usually and knee wont heal in that way. I'm praying God to heal his knee, I love my cat so much and hope to get him well without cutting knee.
