I have an 11 month old Rottie named Leonidas..Leo for short.
He was an impulse buy and we didn't do enough research. When we got him home he became very sick..
Green discharge from his nose, not eating and vomiting. We took him to the vet and he had pneumonia. They put him on antibiotics and nebulizer treatments, and he recovered.
At 4 months old we took him for a long walk, and that night while he was sleeping he kept crying every time he moved.
We brought him to the vet and he was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. We then took him to a surgeon and he had surgery for the condition.
His femur heads were removed and the recovery was awful. It took a few months for him to fully recover.
Now at 11 months he is a happy, healthy, energetic dog. His right leg is a little week when standing still, but other than that you wouldn't know what he went through.
The breeder thankfully paid for almost all of his treatments which were approximately $6000.00.
Hopefully he will continue to remain healthy and his back legs will continue to get stronger.Return to YOUR Rottweiler Pictures Gallery
