Small Dog is not a happy bunny.
Over recent days, we have become increasingly concerned about an intermittent limp affecting one of her back legs.
A visit to the vet yesterday confirmed that she does indeed have a luxating patella for which we are trying a conservative treatment of rest (HA!) and anti-inflammatory medicine. She's not allowed to jump, run around, go upstairs or in any way exert the knee joint.
This, of course, is much easier said than done.
Voluntary inactivity is one thing, but enforced inactivity does not sit well with Small Dog so we don't hold out much hope for the resting cure.
The alternative is surgery, which sits even less well with Small Dog. We're not keen on that option either, especially as last time she underwent surgery we had to buy a new kitchen.
Oh, it's a long story.......if you pester me to tell I might relent.
