Injury/Disease - choose all that apply

I seem to have bad luck with a particular injury. Which injury or disease have you dealt with? Is there a particular one that seems to be a trend in your dogs?

In this poll, you should be able to mark more than one option. Also, my suggestion is if you don't recognize the injury/disease you can Google it or assume you haven't had to deal with it.

None of the above here. There are none I've had to deal with more than once. Logan had SIADH, syndrome of inappropriate anti diuretic hormone but thats pretty rare. Tessa has chronic dry eye but not pannus. Emma needs enzymes to maintain weight, but she was negative for EPI so I didn't select it.

Injury wise the worst I've had to deal with was Tessa's broken leg, everything else has been minor cuts or strains.

I haven't had any of those in my GSD, but my Golden had spinal spondylosis, DJD in her hips and arthritis in her hips and wrists (as she got older), and bloat (with torsion, had to have emergency surgery at 11 years old).

I haven't had any real health issues like that with Odin yet (knock on wood!), he did last summer have a slight strain to his knee I guess you could say after he landed badly playing frisbee but it was quickly resolved after some light rest.

Harley, my shep mix had hypothyroidism and spondylosis before she passed.

Fugi had degenerative myelopathy during the last yr of life- she lived to be almost 13.

Christy died from cancerous tumor complications (due to location) when she was 13.

I only used my GSDs for the poll, so all I checked was the ligament damage. (Forgot that my male GSD had Ehrlichia... whoops!)

If I'd added my Rottie, we would've had a bunch more issues!
