    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    We have a healthy 4-year old dachshund/pit-bull mix. She is fairly stout at 47 lbs of muscle. (she looks more like a sausage than a weiner). We recently had her periodic checkup. The Vet showed us how her right rear knee would readily pop out of joint. While he did not take x-rays, he suggested that surgery would likely be the best option to prevent further serious injury. We have had a long relationship with our Vet and respect his opinion. However, we have not seen any symptoms (tenderness, limping, yelping, etc.) that indicate a problem. She runs and plays normally. We are planning to seek a second opinion but would like your thoughts...
