Medical Conditions & Diseases / Knee Arthritis(sp) in a 8mth
« on: December 03, 2007, 09:07:03 pm »
Well I had  a thread in  the  Rotti  thread  about  Hip Dysplasia, and that  Zeus was showing  signs.. Well  yesterday   I  faught the  lovely  blizzard and drove an  hour and half to take  zeus to his appt. Well  we  found out the  he  probley  doesn't  have  hip dysplasia  but   His left leg that  has  caused  problems  when  he was a pup. ( it has a funny  toe aswell)   the  vet is   concerned with the  toe  sence the  foot  goes out side ways  and also his  knee is still   messed up.  SO   the vet  who looked at it in the first  place when He was  younger said  it  was  just a sprain and that  was that  well this  vet  who is new to the clinic says that is surely  not  what it is anymore, and  that he has a feeling it is  arthritis in the knee that  probley  came  from the  supposably  sprain  that  the  last  vet  didn't treat  right. He  is going to try to look in to  zeus's  BAckground  and call the SPCA  and  Find out  if the  pups  went through any  cruelty or abuse. Any way on the 13th   zeus will be going in  for  xrays.  He will  be  getting  his knees and  hips  xrayed that  way  we will know  forsurely if it is arthritis and also at the  same time minuse out  hip dysplasia. ThE vet  told  me  if it is Arthritis it is a simple  surgery to fix this and that after the surgery  he would be a hundred purcent  better.  He gave me some antibiotics  for him  to see if they help  for the time being.  Im so  nervouse and sad  for my  pup,  he is  just so young. Not even a year old, the vet even  felt  awfull, sence  zeus is still just so young .

Well We got are new  fur baby  kitten on the 18th  of november I   havent h ad a chance to get on  due to alot of different  issues, on  being  My  norton  ran  out and some  family  issues. BUt any- who...

We got are  new  kitten  hubby and  i desided to name  him  blizzard instead of Hermes,  due to when  we got him Hermes  just  never suited the  lil guy. So  we desided on BLizzard s ence on are  way  to  pick  him up we had to go through a terrible  blizzard. 
He  the kitten was born Sep 30  so  he will be  two months soon.. HE is adapting  great  you would  think he was here the  whole time, and  well   hubby   has adapted to  he is always  cuddling  with the lil  tart.  Zeus on the other  hand thinks  he is a snack lol  so  we have to watch  carefully  zeus  will lay there  licking his lips waiting  for thekitten  to come to him lol  ..

I Called the  vet this morrning so we  will be taking him in next monday  unless it gets worse  and he told me to  bring  him right in.  So that  has been my  excitement  lately that and family  health problems

Rottweiler Discussions / Found out about his background
« on: October 10, 2007, 08:35:27 am »
Well as some of you know  Zeus is are rescue  pup, We got him  from the shelter  were his mommy  and  siblings all were. All we knew is that  well the mom  got took away  from her owner. We were not sure if the pups  lived there or if  she had them in foster care.  Well this thanks giving weekend I found out the truth.

Zeus, mommy  Diamond IS a registered Rotti  She is papered etc.  IT  dont  matter now though sence  the SPCA  didn't get the papers. I guess the Spca got  Diamond  5 times or so and after the 5th time they  keep her owner  cant  get her. Well Iguess they  just got Diamond Breed to another  Papered rotti when well she got took.  SO  MY pup Is actually a papered rotti  if I could get the papers, (Unlikley sence  he is a r escue) I was just amazed to here this  another  rotti breeder in are area told me when I got zeus taht she thought he  was pure and   she told me she hear dthat  a breeder got her  dogs took.  I  never  really thought about it  till My  Cousin in law was telling me  the real  story  her  friend works at the SPCA.  IS that  cool

Rottweiler Discussions / bad zeus whats up
« on: September 18, 2007, 02:44:47 pm »
Well We have been really lucky with Zeus SO FAR.. HE hadn't disstroyed anything till yesterday. I went to town like I have many times sence  getting him  and I leave him at home outside ( we  are on the farm etc and aways from town). Well I guess he got mad and wreaked a couple toys and ripped off the padding to my sons bike seat and  some other  things that are allways outside  that  he has never  touched  sence he has his own outdoor toys. THen last night I usually dont let him in till 9:30 - 10:00 for night giving him time to pee etc.. Well he got mad at us I am guess and on the outside of the house rippped out the cable that attached the upstairs tv to the down stairs so know I have no satelite up stairs arggg. Sheldon (hubby) will be fixing that tonights. but we have had him sence june and he has never done anthing like this why all of a sudden. I wasn't  even gone as long as I usually am and at night time  he is  allways  out till then. I feel bad becasue the way its looking is that we are going to have to tie him when we leave or keenel him, so  he doesn't disstroy things well we are gone. and I really  dont  want to do that.  We are in bettween looking for a new place  but  I just  dont know  what to do  if this continues.

I need suggestions I   really  dont wamnt to tie  him and  well kenneling him  i feel  awfull. BUT  why  is this all of a sudden happening he has been a great  pup   so far.  HE  went threw the teething and   he  did  good  and  the sad part is that he isnt  chewwing the things he is demolitioning them
