    All three of my Rotts had bone cancer. Same front left leg. All were fed a raw diet. There is no known reason for bone cancer.
  2. French Bulldog Thread!

    I agree with you on the price. I always thought Frenchies were in the $2500 to $3000 range. I had a look on Gumtree for example and breeders/sellers are asking from $4000, right up to $11000. I also note the high number of wanted ads for Frenchies that's obviously pushing the price up from a lot of sellers on sites such as Gumtree.

    I love your crew grumpette. I miss having a Rott/s in my life.

    I didn't have my dogs first three years vet history and it made no difference. Claim was successful. No questions asked and very simple . It was a cancer claim though.

    I've just been paid approx. $6500 from Bow wow meow for a claim I put in for cancer tests. No questions asked and a very simple process.

    Hi Ray, My beloved boy had to be PTS on June 25. Twenty days prior to this, tests hadn't shown signs of any other problems and the next step was amputation and chemo. By the time I had decided to go ahead with this, his condition had deteriorated and I took him back to the specialist hospital. 90 mins later I was told he had other problems including low temp., pancreas problems and likely septic shock. It's very difficult to let them go, but I had no choice. I have now lost all three of my Rottweilers to this disease. All three had bone cancer in the same front leg. I love this breed, but I will find it very difficult to have another.

    Depends who you see. I spent over $7000 simply on tests ( over three visits ) and the specialist i was dealing with was away the week my boys condition went downhill. I took him back there to be checked by another specialist, but he couldn't be saved. I never even received a phone call from the specialist i was dealing with for the previous three visits. Obviously when he returned and was updated, he simply moved onto his next patient. No compassion that's for sure. The local vet however was fantastic. I received a nice phone message and a very nice card from her and the whole team.

    The condition still hasn't been confirmed as yet, even after all the tests he has had. At this point all I know is there's an area that is considered abnormal in the leg. They think it might be a secondary cancer. He's had three trips to the specialist and has had a physical examination, blood tests, x Rays, ultrasound, CT scan and a bone biopsy on two separate visits. Results have also been sent Interstate to an expert. This is on top of the x Rays and visits to the local vet prior to the specialist. Costs are adding up with all these tests, but what do you do when you're so attached to your dog/

    Thanks for your thoughts cav.
  10. Rotty Owners

    Good morning Rotty owners, I'd like any feedback from Rotty owners regarding leg amputation and how the recovery and post recovery was for their Rottweiler. Positive or negative opinions. It looks like this may be an option for my Rottweiler this week if I want to fight what appears to be cancer. This will make it three out of three Rotts for me that have had this disease.
  11. I think I saw a story about this on Moreton Crime Watch FB page.
  12. Oscar's Law

    Does that include allegedly mowing someone down with their car after breaking and entering a property to trespass? Allegedly ? Who mowed down who ? Where did this allegedly happen ? any facts or links to share ? Or is this another Facebook claim ? Pretty easy to google it. Took me three seconds to find it in The Age. Would've taken three seconds to add it to your post.

  14. Rspca

    Exactly who I was quoting. "rossetta" was quick to jump in with the bloody disgusting RSPCA comment without any evidence or proof that this dog was PTS or even exists. That's my problem. Too many people on this forum jump onto the RSPCA hate wagon and blanket the whole Org.
