Wonder if anyone has had this problem. A 5 year old GSP who is hunted hard suddenly developed intermittent lameness diagnosed as luxating patella. Vet has put bitch on anti inflams and ordered rest for two weeks. If not better surgery. As we have our National end of June (on quail) and season starts April we are very anxious about this. I am wondering what the prognosis is. The vet says good but I have my doubts. Upland bird hunting on totally wild birds is very demanding! I would be most interested to hear of any experience with this.
