What Is A Luxating Patella?


Does your dog skip a step or run on 3 legs? Then seems to be fine? In the early stages, a luxating patella (moving kneecap) can be popped back into place with little or no pain for the dog. As the condition worsens, there may be persistent pain and arthritis. Luxating patella  is common in toy breeds like Yorkies and Papillons. Being proactive early is key. Ask Ariel's Ultra-Flex Collagen is a natural supplement that helps build joint and connective tissue and has shown to be helpful for luxating patella.
