Hi Cindy and thanks! I don't think Chloe has stomach aches. I do hear gurgling every now and then but that's it. I will have to try the heating pad though.

I am glad to report however, that Chloe limp seems less severe today than it did since Monday. Hopefully she's on the mend from this particular bout...

Me_sonnie, welcome to our group. I know exactly what you are talking about. My chi is 12 yrs old and has the same issue with his knees and he also has back issues. I give him a baby aspirin everyday in his wet dog food and that seems to help both problems. Now, he still has those issues and same days they do act up on him but we get though it. When his back acts up I usually cover him up with a heating pad or sit him next to me covered up. That really helps him. Does your every have stomach aches? When Atlas has that issue the vet says to give him the stomach medicine that is pink. So, I put a little water in it and give it to him with an dropper and after a couple of hours and sometimes longer he is better. I know when he does not eat his treats or when I hear his stomach making noises about this issue. I hope this helps.

Thanks for the welcome and advice. emoticon

I'm a member of the Dog Lover's team, but I was also looking for something specific for Chi's. You'll definitely see me around!

Welcome to the team, Hope you'll join us in our "chat". I think it depends on each dog about the surgery.

Welcome to the team...

3 of my dogs have that condition and 2 required surgery. If Chloe is not experiencing any pain, then you don't need the surgery. Getting her to lose some weight would be very good for her knee. Just watch her and see if the condition changes.

Hope this helps....

Hello everyone,

I'm Sonia, I've been a member on SP for a while, but am glad I found this team! I have a 4 yr old, black, long-haired chi named Chloe. She's my little pride and joy. I've had problems in the recent past with my mom over-feeding Chloe so she's overweight and has some physical problems as a result. I've had to really put my foot down where that's concerned, and thankfully Chloe has lost some weight. She still has some weight to lose but is doing well. Almost better than I am, LOL!

She currently is having issues with her back right leg. She's been limping and carrying her leg. The vet said she could have problems with her knee (patellar luxation?). Does anyone know if that would require surgery?

Thanks and I'm glad to be a part of this team!
