    DefaultTank re-hurt his leg

    About 4 days ago and we called the vet and they said rest him. Well he didn't want to rest so the vet told us to get some kind of pill that calms him down. I cant remember the name but i call them psychotic pills,lol. His legs are still hurting a little so we had to give him a asprin as well(vets permission). I love Tank but i wish he wasnt a puppy from a byb. i want him to be the same but not having all these health problems at the young age of 6! I also think he may be getting arthritis My mom has a job interview so I hope she gets the job(will be a good paying job) so we can take him to the vet. Tank si enjoying all the attention he gets though. I am starting to think he hurts himself purposley to get more attention then usual.

    Good thoughts for Tank.Keep his as rested as you can. Erns often has days or weeks I keep him quiet. When he was younger it was harder.

    I know I have said this many times. Erns is from one of N.Z. most respected breeders, if not the most respected breeder. Wins most of the show award, etc..etc...
    He has had severe hip displaysia and joint issues since I got him at 3.5.

    Yes breeding helps, but so does many other factors. I do understand your feelings though. Many times over the years I have wished Erns had better joints, wished his owners had looked after him better, but he is what he is and nothing can change that....We just have to love them for what they are and do what we can.
