Pet of the Month: Rocco!

January 20, 2012

Rocco affectionately known as “Boo Boo” is a very handsome 7 year old Rottweiler. In the fall of 2010, Rocco came in for a physical exam, and during our investigation we found he had a torn cruciate ligament in his right hind knee. Surgery was performed by an orthopedic surgeon to repair Rocco’s knee.

Unfortunately he became lame once again on his right hind leg. This past fall he was rechecked at the referral clinic where they diagnosed him with bone cancer. In November 2011 he had his right hind leg amputated to remove the cancerous bone, and to alleviate the pain associated with the cancer. He is currently undergoing chemotherapy here at Markham Veterinary Clinic. He is getting around extremely well with his three legs. He is the happiest 3 legged Rottweiler in town! All of the staff at Markham Veterinary Clinic are very proud of this handsome and courageous boy and his family.
