Hello, my 3 year old stella has had grade two luxating patella and it seems to be getting worse and holding her back when playing and sore with limping next day after activity. Her anatomy from favoring that side is changing and I am considering surgery. I Wanted an experience consult in the Tacoma area. Any recommendation would be appreciated. Thanks JD

Laser therapy can be really beneficial and greatly help the luxating patella, it can really help the pain and inflammation. Definitely something you should look into.

Not sure what vet(s) you currently see but I know people that see Dr. Pam at All Creatures in Puyallup. There’s also South Hill in Puyallup. If you don’t mind traveling, there is Dr. Tweed in north Seattle. I know a lot of Frenchie people go see her and will travel from the south end. VCA in Lynnwood has specialists as well.
