I'm sorry to hear of this with Lady. Such swelling in Rotties too often indicates lymphedema - a swelling of protein-rich interstitial fluid cuased by impaired lymphatic function. Unfortunately, in this breed lymphedema most often is caused by either a local malignancy or metastasis of cancer cells from a distant location and those cells are clogging the lymphatic vessels. Lymphedema is often overlooked and so Lady's vet may not be familiar with the condition. Feel free to share our conversation with Lady's vet.

The initial database is extensive when lymphedema is present. It involves careful inspection of regional systemic veins, rectal examination to identify caudal (toward the tail) abdominal or pelvic mass lesions, thoracic and abdominal X-rays or ultrasonography, cytologic examination of regional lymph nodes or tissue fluid, and biopsy of affected tissues to rule out lymphangiosarcoma - cancer of the lymph vessels.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Dr. has tested the bacteria, she give Lady antibiotics. Lady has arthritis in her hip as well. I like my refund back because Lady's Vet said that was not the case. Thanks, Carol
