It looks like my poor little Aston might have a patella problem. Last night I came home and we were walking from one room to the next and he literally fell down and started screaming. Luckily, the vet stays open until 10pm so I scooped him up and get him over there for a work-in appointment. Thankfully the doctor saw us within 15 minutes and was able to pop whatever came out back into place.
After examining him her said that both knee caps were loose, one more than the other and he said he would feel better if we saw an orthopedic specialist. He sent us home with some anti-inflammatories and faxed the paperwork to the specialist. I called this morning and they are able to get us in at 8am tomorrow which is great. I feel so bad for him as he is such a little love bug and only 2.5 years. Hopefully the specialist will have good news, but I am fully prepared for him to say we need to go ahead with surgery.
Fingers crossed for a positive report!
