This is Prada a 1 year old Chihuahua who developed with an abnormal hind limb conformation resulting in her knee cap dislocating out of position on a regular basis. As well as causing pain, this condition pre-disposes to arthritis in the joint.
Prada was successfully operated on to reintroduce the knee cap back in to its original home! Prada is now free to live a normal pain free life.
The images illustrate the metal pins and wire which have been used to correct Prada’s deformity.
