1 in 4 Rotties (I believe) are prone to osteosarcoma. especially if altered at early age (under 2 yrs.).
Of course, extensive exercise on overweight dog who has had sedentary life will do it too. Could be both.
Rotties are prone to obesity too, likely thyroid related. Going raw asap, low fat, kelp for thyroid.
And when checked out...please do not allow vet to put on NSAID or steroid "just because"...ask what has to be done to rule out bone cancer...do that first before all else
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
