That is exactly what a 'slipped patella' means. A step or two and the patella 'slips' right back into the grove. All of my chi's knees were 'normal' when checked at one year. They developed the patella problem after a year. Two are from 'excellent breeders". 2 have been surgically repaired, the third is fine and doesn't have any pain----so far. I don't do surgery unless the dog is in pain most of the time.
