Baby Ben’s knee is dislocated and he will need surgery to repair it. Apparently, the knee would pop out of place and then pop back into place. This explains why the regular veterinarian didn’t see it on the x-rays.
I took Ben to an orthopedic veterinarian, Dr. Newman, and he was able to diagnose the problem and said the only way to fix it was to surgically stabilize the knee.
Surgery is scheduled for Tuesday and then he will need six weeks of rehabilitation to ensure complete healing of the joint.
We are all praying for a quick and full recovery.
