Knee dislocation in dog


I have an 11 year old female Pomeranian named Abby. We took her to the vet to get her teeth and ears cleaned and she also got her shots. She was in seemingly perfect health up to then.

After her vet visit she could no longer walk. She was experiencing lameness in her right back foot. A return visit to the vet said, she has a dislocated leg or knee. I wish we had not taken Abby to the vet at all now. The vet says surgery is the option.

Are there any homeopathic remedies or alternatives to surgery? We don't have the extra money and are obviously very upset. It has been five days since her vet visit. Thanks for your help. I sure hope there is something that can be done.

Thanks for your replies. Let me try to answer your questions.

1) The vet was out of town after initial visit. A temporary vet has been in his place. I will have to clarify if the dislocation is hip, leg, knee, etc; each term has been mentioned.

2) Abby shows no discomfort when her right hind leg is touched, from top to bottom.

3) The vet was supposed to call yesterday to set up an appointment for surgery today (Friday), he didn't call. The vet asked us to bring Abby home earlier in the week and seem to be wanting to distance themselves from the problem.

Abby is sleeping more than usual. She will rarely walk. We must carry her everywhere, but seems a little more lively than initally.

John, your first statement is quite possible. Abby has had minor stiffness in her legs in the past. Also, if I remember correctly a past round of shots resulted in minor lameness, but we disregarded as normal pain from shots.

Thanks for all your help and sorry for the long post.

ok then start treatmen with single dose (2pellets) sulphur 30c

if not had experience withhandlng homeopathic remedies let me know.otherwise follow suggestion

get her on raw food now --not cooked at all---good quality beef or lamb--venison best if available--no pork-no fish---absolutly no processed foods at all...NONE

bones with meat even beter--alow her fre access outside--or walk in grass areas..

be mindful after giving sulphur---may show some anger--but not a problem --just be mindful and not overly handle her.
keepme closely enformed

I can't thank you enough John for your advice. I am a little unclear what you mean by raw or uncooked meet, no experience. Can this be bought at a petstore, such as, Petco. I found a Natural Balance venison & brown rice forumula at Petco; I am not allowed to link.

Also, I just wanted to clarify that she is under 10 pounds, if that makes any difference for your recommendations.

1) For how long should I give the sulfur pellets? Should I continue to follow up w/ you in this thread? John,thanks again and anybody else for their help now or in the future.

sulphur 30c only one time---no repetition of dose...

raw meat --as would buy at butcher..fresh raw meat...she may take some adjusting---chop up for her...no large portions at first...(as compared to usual -give less in fresh raw meat)--if you feel must give her other food---then nothing canned--and Definitely NOTHING WITH SOY IN...as no preservatives and such--

Dogs aren't carnivores, they are omnivores. And even if they were carnivores, muscle meat alone would not be sufficient nutrition. (Guaranteed to cause rickets in fledgling birds of prey). A "raw meat" diet needs to be supplemented.

grasses and raw meat--as decomposed meat on bones--thus the trait of burying---gives enzymes as grass do..this all canine need..but domestication change and install of its evils...

age of her is to be considered--may not adapt readily to proper nutrtion----use of wheat grass (powdered)mixed with bit of organic olive oi/flaxseed oil--will need mix tis with beef bone broth--but do not cook olive oil and wheat grass--that is used as is after beef /meat broth is cooled..best add --1/8 teaspoon of sea salt and 2 tablespos of organic apple cidar vinegar to beef /meat bone soup/broth while cooking...cook good while--vinegar break down calcium--so assimilablefor her..
