Today Dr. Karen Becker discusses the painful condition known as floating kneecaps, or luxating patellas.
Dr. Becker’s Comments:
Floating kneecaps are more typically a problem of small and tiny dogs.
Often a dog with this problem appears fine. He has no history of a traumatic injury to the leg, and he’s very active – running and playing normally.
Then out of the blue one day he comes up lame. He picks up a back leg. He might yelp or cry while holding the leg off the ground.
You think to yourself, ‘Oh my gosh! What just happened?’ It seems like there’s been some sort of trauma to your pup, yet you’ve been watching him run around and he seemed fine.
Just as suddenly, your dog lowers his leg and starts walking or running around again as though nothing ever happened. What occurred, unbeknownst to you, was that his kneecap popped out of place, stopping him in his tracks and causing him to hold his leg up. Then the kneecap returned to its original position, he was able to put his foot back down, and off he went.
I’ve had pet owners in my practice tell me, ‘My dog went suddenly lame, holding up a back foot, and then just as suddenly he was not lame.’ That’s a pretty typical description of what happens with the condition known as luxating patella.
