Question: Are tumors common in Rottweilers?

Keywords: , ,

  1. @wendy01: Yes, cancer is a health issue seen regularly in Rottweiler populations (enough that it is listed as a health issue of the breed).

    Osteosarcomas (bone tumours) are reported as being fairly common.

    Do you have a Rotti?



  1. No, but my old neighbors did and his name was Sabur. He had a tumour in his leg and the had to put him down, but he meant alot to me and i miss him everyday
