Both dogs that I knew were yorkies, one mini and one standard and it is apparently very common in that breed??
I guess it would depend on how bad the dog is but both of these folks said the vets were not big on this type of surgery either??
Marty is a mini poodle mix and I am not sure what he is mixed with. He is having a hard time lifting his hind legs to pee and it taking him forever to pee.
I will not feel like standing outside in the winter for Marty to pee. The poor dog. I found a vet that will do both x ray for about $200 and the office visit is only $55. They could tell me how bad Marty's knees are and I can decide what to do. I wonder if knee braces will help keep his knee from popping out of joint. I just read some reviews for the second place and some where not too good.
