I have a 7 month old, 98 lb., Rottweiler.  He has a swollen right leg and has been limping on it for some time now.  The vet specialist wants to operate on his shoulder, and eventually on his knee.  I was hoping for some insight into other options instead of surgery.  He is on buffered aspirin and we're keeping his activity real low..  Vet's orders..  I'm frustated...

I'm afraid you are probably going to need surgery for your dog.  He should not be 98 lbs. until around the age of 1, so he's a little big for his age, and his activity could have put a strain on his legs.  It could also possibly be a type of bone cancer that is common in Rotts, and if it goes untreated the swelling will eventually cut off the blood supply to his leg and he will lose a leg or he could die.  Make sure you get a good vet to look at him and make sure you get more than one opinion.  Hope this helps.
