Clinically normal cats have some degree of laxity in the stifle joint, with subluxation of the patella considered to be a common finding in healthy cats. 1 In contrast, patellar luxation has been reported infrequently in cats. 1–11 In cats with
azaperone (2 mg/kg [0.9 mg/lb], IM). A closed lateral luxation of the right shoulder joint was diagnosed: the humeral head was located lateral and slightly cranial to the scapula ( Figure 1 ). No other remarkable radiographic findings were present. Flunixin

M edial patella luxation (MPL) is common in young, small-breed dogs. A luxating patella can occur due to congenital, developmental, or traumatic causes. It is most commonly a developmental disease that occurs when dogs are born with an anatomic

Patellar luxation is a commonly diagnosed orthopedic condition in dogs. 1 Dogs can present with varying signs ranging from mild instability of the patella within the trochlear groove with no clinical signs to constant luxation
an attempt was made to keep the patella reduced during preoperative radiographic TPA measurement. Patellar luxation during radiograph acquisition could potentially lead to inaccurate TPA measurements.

Luxation of the hip joint is common in dogs, comprising up to 90% of all luxations. 1–12 Closed reduction is typically the first line of treatment for dogs with hip joint luxation but may be unsuccessful because of intra-articular fractures
