More and more people are contacting us with their stories of Rutland Manor and the health conditions of their beloved dogs. Buying a Rutland Manor dog is expensive but the hidden costs is something Beverley does not reveal. There has never been any health tests published about any of the Rutland Manor breeding dogs, its all a huge secret and the consumer is always left with the huge vet bill and the heartbreak. Here is Ozzy’s story and we learn of 3 dogs purchased by the one family all with health problems.
Do you still want that expensive Rutland Manor ‘poodle’?
To all concerned,
We purchased our beloved doodle Ozzy in May of 2008 and he was the last litter that Yogi Bean had with Charlamagne.
When Ozzy arrived at DIA I was a little shocked about his condition, he was rather small and his lower jaw was slightly deformed. But there was no way I was going to put this precious baby back on a plane to Austrailia. Ozzy has done extremely well up until 2 months ago. I noticed depression, loss of engery and stiffness in his limbs. The first month I thought because our household had changed somewhat it was taking an effect on Ozzy, but as it progressed I sought medical attention. His first blood test came back with with high kidney levels that the vet had never seen in such a young dog and his urine was diluted, did xrays that were inconclusive and recommended an ultrasound which we had done. The ultra showed two kidneys but the left appears to have some type of calicification in it. I then changed his diet to strictly organic and filtered water. A week later the blood test came back with kidney levels normal but his bilirubin levels were exremely high 1.9 and the ultra sound did show the liver was small. My vet is stumped, we are doing a bile acid blood test next week and a complete thyroid panel. If these are inconclusive she is referring me to Colorado State University Veterinary School. My sister and mother both have purchased doodles’ from Rutland Manor and both have medical problems: one has a unidentified liver problem she is 4 parents Rosie and the studs name I can not remember and the other has hip dyplasia at the age of 4 parents Irish Night aka Coal and Lil Woo Woo. Needless to say we are heartbroken, when we thought we were getting our pets from a loving breeder who turns out to be the worst of the worst. If anyone has information on liver conditions from Rutland Manor I would love to hear from you. Regards, Sandra and Ozzy
