    Hi everyone.
    Thanks for all the replies.
    Just back from vet with Sasha.
    Vet did a rectal and checked anal glands and everything is fine. She then checked her hips and as she pulled back she squealed.Her knees were fine though.
    So am home with metacam and back in a week....and if no better she will be xrayed ASAP.
    Not really the news i would have liked but fingers crossed for next week.

    My poor baby has been at the vet constantly for the last few mths....first with phantom pregnancy resulting in a huge abscess on her tummy which then burst causing massive infection ....then we speyed her and while the spey op her over shot jaw had to be checked...only to find her bottom jaw is not formed properly and is unstable() so no chews,tug toys,or hard treats for her!Apparently it is not genetic and has just been bad luck.
    The worst thing is that it cannot be fixed because of the jaw anatomy being so badly formed.As the vet said.....it is not causing her problems or causing pain...which is the best we could hope for.
    Afetr the spey op she had a reaction to the stitches and she had a fluid build up needing drained.Then she developed milk again and was back on galastop.Which then leads us to now....possibly having a problem with her hips .

    Fingers crossed for next week being better news.
    And to top it all off the cat has ear mites so the dogs are being treated for them too as they all sleep together.

    Thankyou for all the replies guys!
    Will keep u updated.x
    She is only 17mths old..

    Oh poor thing really has been through a lot. I wonder why they didn't do an xray today. I hope the pain killers work for her in the meantime.

    You really have been throught he wars with this little lady.
    Hopefully it's something that will resovle with anti-inflammatories and rest.
    It's no harm to get the hips x rayed anyway if this can be done under insurance??

    I hope you can get to the cause of her pain and that Sasha will feel better soon.

    Have you formally contacted the breeder to let them know of all the problems you've had with your dog? A (hopefully) conscientious breeder would not mate the dam & sire again.

    Poor you and poor Sasha.
    Sounds terrible what you have been through. Hope things get better for Sasha very soon.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    Sasha will be xrayed next week and will probably be sent to a specialist as she is insured.Think my vet was wanting to wait a week incase the anal glands were still a bit painful from the sat when they were really full and expressed.They will have to sedate her as she is wriggly and hyper so they wont have a choice...my other cav though is so laid back you can do anything to her and she gets on with it.
    Am just crossing my fingers that its nothing too bad.
    She is showing no other signs of sore hips....still jumping around like a puppy.

    As for the breeder, i will get a full report from my vet detailing everything...including her jaw having not being formed properly and her hips if that is def the problem.I will call her when we know more and send her a copy of the report.
    The breeder actually kept her sister and there were 3 other pups that went to homes.I seen both parents,both heart tested too and MRI'd.
    This was the second time the bitch had been mated with the male and they had kept one from that litter too.We still sometimes see Sashas breeder and mum from time to time and send up some pics of her to them.So it shouldnt be a problem bringing up the issues we have had with her.

    As bad as it feels.... it could always be worse.

    Ah, yes, you are right. Perhaps this pup was just the unlucky one from a good breeder. Most likely it's often impossible to know what can happen to a dog when they're so young, before they go to their homes.
