I think all people are suggesting is that you mention the skipping to your vet, who can then watch your dog walk and maybe do a hand and visual exam to make certain all is good. I am not sure why you are so offended/defensive over nothing more than a mention at her annual vet exam.Thanks. That's good to hear even if it's from one owner. I don't think, but know it's not a good thing to do when it is 100% obviously not necessary.
Johanna's dog is likely to be bred, and bad patellas would disqualify her from being bred, so has had more formal testing, but that is unlikely to be necessary for a pet unless severe.
Better safe than sorry, always mention unusual things to the vet is the mood around here, I think. Especially when the checking costs nothing (a mention at the exam) and provides peace of mind. Patella issues are common enough in small poodles, it's probably a good thing to double check anyways - your vet may very well be checking them at exams anyways!
Any time a dog has an unusual gait, it's a good thing to check with the vet, though not necessarily an emergency. My family personally ignored a change in gait that we thought was due to arthritis/overuse in one leg, and turned out to be osteosarcoma. The guilt of that (couldnt have fixed it, but could have had her on pain meds to improve her quality of life earlier) will live with me forever. Patella issues if minor, are unlikely to need anything more than being careful about jumping to preserve their good health for longer. Good to know either way for sure. I know if Annie or Trixie started hopping or skipping occasionally, I would bring it up at our next vet appointment for my peace of mind.
