Hi , In response to you question about JRT with sublaxating patella. I have a 3.5yr old female. She started limping when she was 2, took her to the vet, they gave a her a course of needles or arthrisits. to no avail. two months later took xrays found nothing obvious. Had a dog physotherapist. she diagnosed sublaxating patella, offered all the options, shark cartlidge, fish oil, diet change, massgae, joint stimulation. Pressively she has gotten worse , muscle wastage not using let now. Operation cost $900.00 to $3000.00, depending on the degree of damaged has occurred. From what I have read my dog is at stage IV. Not good. I don't think I can afford the op. But I don't want to loose a memeber of the family - great dog.
