|that's so true. Tag has a lv 1-2 on the right leg that slips out when he trots, but not when he's walking or galloping. It was worse, but we've been making him swim in the bathtub and we've taken another 7oz off of him from when we got him, and that was after losing 32oz when he was at the pound. His kneecap is slipping a lot less than it used to, but eventually I know it will need surgery, which will cost around $800 for that one leg. We've just been working on giving him a good grain free, protein rich diet, low impact excersize and glucosamine suppliments.
Personally I think he had a rough birth and maybe calcium deficiency, certainly a bad diet. He has all sorts of clues along his right side, like white spots in the shape of fingertips along his undercarriage, a floppy right ear, and he used to have impacted primaries.
But I'm getting off topic. I hope the vet can give you a good estimate on the severity of that LP. It's no fun fr bouncy zoomy dogs to have knee problems
