What is Patellar Luxation in Dogs?
Patellar luxation is a condition in which the patella (kneecap) slips out of its normal location within the stifle (knee). Patellar luxation has been described as the most common congenital, or present at birth, malformation in dogs diagnosed in 7% of puppies, and can manifest in different types of luxation and varying grades of severity. Small-breed dogs are affected at 10 times the rate found in large breed dogs.
