Treatment Options for Cat with Luxating Patella?My 2 year old female cat has been diagnosed with luxating patella. The cost of an operation is about $800 Au. There is also medication which is like Nurofen for cats. I can't get this unless I go to the vet. This will cost me $82, the medication is only $25 but the cost of the visit takes up the rest. Is there any other way of managing this problem besides the two I have mentioned. There are two vets in this town, one is very expensive but nice and clean and professional. The other is very smelly and cheap. I can't bring myself to take my babies to the cheap one for fear of cross infection.
