Wait, what grade is the luxating patella? Usually they only do surgery on the cases that are very severe.
Is Trixie overweight? Any extra weight on a dog with luxating patella will make the knees so much worse.
My boy has luxating patella in both knees, one knee very easily goes in and out, the other is permanently out. I do not want surgery for him, and my vet does not recommend it as he has very little issue with his knees, he does not seem to be in pain, and he is not lame. He has a funny gait but runs and jumps just fine. He was getting overweight and I did have to get some of that extra weight off of him, since then he's doing much better overall.
