    my dog was a year old when one day i noticed he limped. it wasnt all the time so i just thought it was a cramp because it seemed to happen when he went from a laying to standing position. So i took him to the vet and turns out he has bad knees…its hereditary 🙁 im stuck with not knowing what to do i hate seeing him in pain…but the surgery is 7 thousand each leg..and my vet told me its not guaranteed! I say you get a different opinion or exrays done..

    thanks for shering with me .
    i did my resurch and finnd out this limping looks like laxiting patellar(knee displasia)
    its genetic in pit bulls and can be only fixed with surgery.so your vet is probebly correct-unfortunatly.
    thanks again
