Hello Mylotters, Well, today is the day. My tiny tea cup Chihuahua is having surgery. A few days ago we noticed him walking kind of strange, as if he were in pain and having a hard time jumping up to lay on him bed. So, I called the vet and they said to bring him in right away. The doctor confirmed that is knee cap was sliding side to side. This condition she said is just from his genetics..He was born with this problem. Well, now he is a year old and I am worried because he is so small. He is also having teeth pulled because the vet said his tiny, baby teeth didn't fall out like they were supposed to. The total surgery is costing about $900 dollars but the vet's office is taking $200 dollar payments until we can pay off the full balance. I am so thankful they are willing to work with us, as there is no price I wouldn't pay for my baby boy. He is there now and all I can do is wait it out. For any pet owner, this can be frightening. I need a lot of prayers because he is my little baby and I hate seeing him in so much pain. Thanks my friends!
