Oh goodness that's horrendous at his age :(

Do they know what's caused it? Perhaps an autoimmune condition?

I don't have any knowledge or experience of this, sorry - I'm hoping Pat will post :)

Let us know what the vet says please - thinking of you, what a dreadful shock for you :(:(

Hi Aileen, Did the vet mention anything about Luxating Patella, I remember sometime ago you mentioned Barney had been diagnosed with this.
What made you take him to the vet on Monday? Hugs to you both :hug:

When I got the telephone call yesterday I was very upset so had to ring in the afternoon to see when he could come home they put him on a drip so he stayed in overnight I have not had a dog so young with this condition we are going to see how it goes to control the pain I will not allow him to suffer unduly so I hope we can do something for him

Love my Cavaliers

Poor poor baby. He's so young. I just know when Oliver has pain from his arthritis how badly I feel for him - but he's 10+ years old! I feel for you. Hugs to you.

Hope Barney is feeling better soon and the vets can do something to ease his pain.

Barney is going on OK at the moment little walks and often still in a lot of pain but he is coping I think
