Patellar Luxation The patella is the kneecap, a small bone inside a ligament that runs across the stifle (knee) joint. This bone is held in place by the ligaments that surround it and the groove inside of the bones on which it travels. Non-traumatic luxation or displacement of the patella is a common problem with toy breed dogs like , and . These toy breeds are purpose-bred, and when traits of small stature and limbs were selected for, problems with conformation came with them. Altered mechanics of the stifle cause the patella of small dogs to fall out of its normal path and end up along the inner surface of the joint, the medial side or inner knee. Issues with the hip joint, too long of a patellar ligament and a shallow groove for the patella to traverse in are some factors that lead to it becoming displaced.

Our Knee Bones are quite a treat for your dog. Full of meat they will keep your dog satisfied and very busy. Knee Bones are one of our smaller bones so they are perfect for smaller dogs and a great bone for you new puppy to chew on. Not only will your dog love the great meaty taste our Knee Bones will help keep teeth and gums healthy. These are safer, as they are mostly cartilage. Be aware, however, that all dogs handle bones differently. I would suggest letting your dog chew on the bone for 15-20 min initially and see if there is any digestive upset. You can put the bone in the freezer between chewing sessions to prevent bacterial growth. Keep an eye on your dog’s teeth for signs of wear as all dogs have different strengths of enamel. Getting just the knee cap(patella) is an even better idea as it is mostly cartilage.The Knee Cap is one of our strongest and most durable bones. This Knee Cap is surrounded with meat and has a hint of liquid smoke to hit the spot!

Rawhides are the skin of cows. Antlers come from either deer or elk. So what do you think bully sticks are? Think about this one. Give up? They are bull penises! Hmm. There are some dangers with all of these items. All of these have the potential and can cause intestinal obstructions, but equally important are the dangers that come from the way these are processed. They are first soaked for hours in a caustic lye solution to digest the undesirables off the skin and then to remove the lye the skin is then soaked in bleach solution. Sounds yummy. Many of the rawhides come from China where they have been known to use arsenic compounds to preserve them. There is no regulation of rawhides or pigs ears. You really have no idea where these come from. Marrow bones and antlers cause many broken teeth. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t want me to hit you in the kneecap with it, your dog should not be chewing on it. I can not tell you how many expensive extractions are the result of dogs chewing bones.
