She was her families treasure and together they shared a wonderful life for 9-10-11 … years!
But at around 11 years old Bella started really having difficulty doing what she loved most, being near her family.
Their home was a split level with many steps and Bella began having difficulty climbing the stairs.
Look, the Rottweiler breed life expectancy, is on average, between 9-11 years.
Bella was blessed!
Bella was a Super Senior and a Healthy Super Senior …. But for the weakening back legs.
Sure she had no longer been jumping up on the bed at night – we all slow with age – but to not be able to go upstairs – was heartbreaking for her and her family.
Of course, their vet recommended and sold the joint supplement, which they gave to Bella daily. Also prescribed pain relievers and pills for inflammation. Nothing worked long term.
