A Visitor asked the following question on 3/5/2006
My yorkie has a congential disorder in his knee joints...I was wondering if there was a place to get more information about this disorder and long term effects if not corrected?

7/8/06 This has been a long time discusion, no one really knows, If breeding the dogs down to toys we all love or perhaps diet. Many are prone to this and your vet should consult you. My opinion on this matter is that Yorkies are so mobile and jump alot putting great stress on the knees. I think they cause some of the problem, as runners also create knee issues Debi
