Has anyone had to have surgery on their babies for a luxating patella? If so how did your furbaby do and what was the cost associated with it (just curious if the quote I got is appropriate not that money matters if my furbaby needs it-it will happen
)? It looks like we are going to have to have this surgery and I am so concerned about it and the recovery, how she will do, etc...... Any feedback would be appreciated.

i was told that sprite will need surgery next year on both knees. $1500 per knee. I'm a little nervous doing it....but if you wait too long, then it will be too late for your baby to get surgery because he will have arthritis. I know how you feel, but my vet said that after the surgery.....the knee will be so much better.

thats cool about the chihuahua. its so scary taking them in for something. and i heard the recovery for surgery is like a month or something. i forget. it just sucks to have to deal with. but if the chihuahua felt great after---it makes me less reluctant to continue with surgery.
