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...
