Default Luxating Patella

Hello everyone, my chihuahua is just a little over a year old but she’s already been diagnosed with a luxating patella in her both back legs My dog, Lexie, is a super energetic girl and loves to play, but sometimes she picks up a back leg (usually her right) and will walk or run on three legs. The vet told us she’s not in any pain and her condition is Grade 1 but still it breaks my heart to see when she jumps around on 3 legs though Lexie doesn’t seem to mind at all lol anyway, the vet said she wouldn’t even consider surgery until Lexie was at least 2 and her condition was more developed, I’m not sure I’d really want to do it since it’s very invasive and she is a tiny little 3 pound girl. Basically I just wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions for what I could do to help her strengthen her knees and try to halt any worsening of her condition? She’s taking joint supplements now but I haven’t seen any benefit yet... anything helps, thank you all so much!
