Does Bella have luxating patellas?
Hi I'm new to the forum and I have two Maltese's one aged 3 years named Bella and one aged 9 months named Zoey. Bella has a weird problem in her back legs and it looks as if she is double jointed to me. I have never seen her in any pain because of this, but I've always been worried about it because it like it could be painful.
Recently I've heard that a large percentage of Maltese's have luxating patellas and I started to wonder if this could be the problem that Bella has. Her leg has never gotten stuck in a position though and she has never really exhibited any hopping that is usually present in dogs with luxating patellas. Any ideas what might be wrong with Bella, if anything?
