This dog has a condition called "luxating patellas." This means that her knee caps on the hind legs may spontaneously pop out of place, resulting in lameness and pain. At this time, her luxating patellas are a Grade 3 out of 4 (where 1 is the least severe and 4 is the most severe) in the left knee and Grade 2 out of 4 in the right knee. This means that the knee cap is loose and may move in and out of place spontaneously as she walks. Typically, dogs with luxating patellae walk normally until the patella moves out of place and then hop or skip for a few steps until it spontaneously returns to normal position.
Lovie is also overweight and we recommend discussing a target weight and regular feeding regimen with a vet.
