Default Luxation Patella Recovery

Hi,

Honey had her luxation paetella surgery done 4 weeks ago, and shes now in her recovery process
Anyway ive noticed recently when she's walking she seems to walk at an angle. Its hard to explain in words but she just leans to one side

Is this normal? Has anyone experienced any probs with their chi's during the recovery of patella surgery?

Sarah

Our little chi we used to have had the surgery done and he kind of walked at an angle too. Like if you looked at him from behind his legs looked somewhat going at an angle...

Hiya DaisyMae,

Did you chi get better as time went on ? Or will he / she always walk at an angle?

He was a senior when we did it, but he did always walk funny after it was done. He had a stiff sort of walk and his little legs would go out at a very slight angle when he walked..sort of looked almost hunched back walking sort of sideways! But he did just fine....the surgery did make the legs a tiny bit stiffer but he did not have any pain and he could run just fine
Although some of that could have been with him just being a senior.
She might be favoring one leg to the other which could make her walk that way? Does she seem to have any pain? Or could it just be the stiff muscles?
Has she gone back to the vets yet? See what he says.....Hope she gets better soon
