Hello All my fellow doggy friends and your owners,
Mommy took me to the vet today for my leg/hip problems, they had a xray scheduled but they did not do one. The doc just felt and moved my leg and hip and told Mommy that he believes it to not be my back....(yippie) and that my leg and hip are not dislocated....(yahooooooo), but that it is my knee cap. Because Dachsies have such short, crooked legs to begin with and me being overly plump and round does not help so my knee cap is out of place and does not work like it should. He said he could do surgery on it where he goes in and pins the tendong to the knee cap to hold it in place but is very painful and takes 6-8 months of bed rest to recover. But seeing I am not showing any pain and I get along the way I do he recommends not doing anything with it at this time. Besides for me to loses 5-10 lbs. So no more treats for me...DARN!!!! I had my paws crossed he would give us good information. So Mommy says she will just have to carry my fat 23.1 lb body around until the day I die...LOL She says they should allow her to claim me on her taxes as her crippled child...LOL Gotta love her!!!
