Tropisch German Shepherds / My dog has hip dysplasia
In December 2014, I purchased a german shepherd puppy from Tropisch German Shepherds. When my puppy was 8 months, he started limping and it continued for a few days so I brought him to my vet. The vet gave him anti-inflammatory pills and the limping went away after a few days. The limping came back about a month later and again, I went to my vet and she gave him anti-inflammatory pills and the limping went away after a few days. My vet told me that if the limping came back a third time, we would have to do an x-ray. The limping came back and about 2 months ago, my dog had the x-ray which revealed the beginning stages of hip dysplasia, panosteitis and arthritis. My vet told me these conditions are progressive and there is nothing I can do to prevent it. I am devastated and disgusted with this breeder. She is young, inexperienced and obviously doesn't care that she is breeding dogs with health problems and selling the puppies to people just for the money. I love my puppy and I am going to give him the best life I can possibly give him, but people need to know that Tropisch German Shepherds is dirty and they breed dogs with health problems. Please stay away from this breeder.
