Thank you for the info! That is reassuring. Knuckling has not really been a problem for him. He's only shown symptoms of it one time a while back after he had played really hard for hours. Other than that, he seems fine with it other than it appearing unstable at times.
Do you have any recommendations in the Oklahoma/Kansas/Texas area for the best ortho that has basset knowledge? We have a couple here in Tulsa but all have very little basset experience to my knowledge. I would at least like to have them look at it and get it scanned just so we can make sure it's not going to cause him a lot of grief down the road.
