= Niki was diagnosed with hip dysplasia when he was about a year old, but until his final days in his battle with the osteosarcoma, he never had any problems with it (his front leg was amputated in June which put a lot of stress on his right hip). Other than the osteosarcoma he was healthy his entire life. He was a fantastic dog with a lot of heart and I miss him.

Other known illnesses
Eva was a healthy, spayed dog. On January 24 she became listless, would not respond to voice or noise and would not eat. She was diagnosed with possible neurologic disease. Blood panels were normal. She was incontient once, possible thyroid problems were diagnosed next. The neurologist ordered several radiographs, urinalysis showed bacteria, which could not be cultured in any medium. The x-rays showed a small lesion on her sternum, which was removed and showed aspergilus fungus. Eva also had panuveitis. She was put on Itraconazole (Sporanox) for the fungus, Cephalexin for the urinary tract infection and drops for the eye inflammation. Two days later she had glaucoma, removal of the eye recommended. Researching canine aspergillus provided information of no recovery, since GSD have no immunite against the fungus. She was euthanized on February 12, 01. Her loss to our family is tremendous
