There are different grades of patellar luxation, and it was are luck that our French Bulldog had the worst grade in both patellas. So surgery was the only option for us. Turns out the "good breeder" we thought we were going to turned out to be not so stellar. Bug's mom had luxating patellas.

I agree with cshellenberger, you can quite possibly get by with therapy and supplements, but I would wait till you see the ortho vet and discuss your options. Surgery worked great for my dog, and the vet we did made the incisions on the inside of the legs so the scars are not visible unless you pick her up.
