Has Anyone Lost There Rottweiler To Bone Cancer?

Postby Boone » Thu May 25, 2017 3:02 pm

Sorry about your dog, any heavy boned breed of dog seems to be more susceptible to osteosarcoma and it is common in Rottweilers as well as bernese Mountain Dogs and Golden Retrievers.

Don't beat yourself up over it, I'm sure Jakey had a wonderful life with you and nothing you did made him contract bone cancer. You didn't let him down - you did the last kind thing you could for him, you would have let him down if you had kept him alive when he could no longer enjoy life. "Better a week too soon than a day too late"

A friend lost a Rottweiler x to bone cancer and she was only 18 months, so it's hardly due to "inbreeding", feeding or environment.

No one knows the answer to your question but some studies indicate that early neutering increases the chances of bone cancer in large breeds.
