Does anyone know about operations on the knees of the hind legs. A friend of mine has a 2 year old basset and was just told with in the next year both her legs would need to be operated on.He says after a short time of playing she cant get up the stairs and seems in pain walking. I think this has been discussed but Im not sure the term and would like to search for information.Is this the same as the front bowing only in the rear?
Also I think he should let the breeder know about this,it may be genetic and the parents should no longer be mated. His son and a close friend also have dogs from this litter and no problems so far. Thanks for any info you can offer.
