Vet told that my dog has Patellar Luxation, but I am not sure about it. Can you see it from the pic or not?

I imagine he made this diagnosis because you brought your dog in for strange limping/hopping that comes and goes … ? Or what prompted the diagnoses in the first place?

There are different grades of this problem. In lower grade the patella (knee cap) dislocates but pops back in on it’s own.
