The surgery was done on 9/8/10
this video was taken 9/11/10
UPDATE: As of 1/2/18 Roxie is doing extremely well. You’d never know she had any issue. Never once a problem since and so far, fingers crossed, no arthritis. To be safe though and because she is now 9 years old we have started giving her glucosamine each night before bed.
Roxie was born on 11/8/08. We noticed her hesitating before she jumped on the couch at about 8 months old. We were told that Papillons have an issue with their knee caps popping on them and she has that so nobody thought to look into legg perthes before. She never cried or limped. She only started to limp for the first time on 8/17/10. We took her to the vet. He did an x-ray and was diagnosed with Legg Perthes Disease.
