My partner has recently purchased a puppy rottweiler,
so the story begins the breeder called use to inform us that the puppy has a broken leg because the mum sat on it.
so he asked us to meet him at the vet and we could decide whether we will take him or otherwise the breeder had to put him down because he couldnt look after it plus the rest of the puppies!
so once he said that there was no way we would allow him to be put down,he was then named Boris.
so the next day we took him to the vet and discovered it was a clean snap which was meant to heal the easiest!
But no so firstly the vet put a bandage on his leg under anesthetic which cost 1000 dollars, which then the bandage had to be changed every 3-4 days, Boris grows so quick to keep it on any longer.
so after three very long weeks of caring for Boris with many incidents of him ripping his bandage off. we thought the leg would be better after spending around 2500 in total.
But no the x-ray showed the bone did not heal so sugery was the next option which we did and another 2000 dollars and 6 pins in his leg.
and discovering that he also had a chest infection gosh another 5oo dollars!
so what to do now Boris's leg has a bit of a limp he goes to the vet today! we can not afford another operation and cant support the on going cost if his hips are gone? its been a long 6 weeks owning our first puppy? what would you do?
