Perhaps it has been a run of bad (and very sad) luck but recently many of my animals have succombed to a health problem. My male Rottie had to be put down recently because he was loaded with prostatic cysts and becoming overly aggressive probably due to feeling poorly. He's just underwent a $1500 surgery in February to correct bilateral hernias. My razorback boar, hand-raised from a two-week orphan, is having serious kidney problems. Friends have experienced sudden deaths in their male studs that after necropsies showed "male" type problems. These are animals that have been well taken care of and fed premium, species- appropriate feeds. Is there an old-timer's secret to maintaining male stud animals in prime health? I know neutering will take care of many of these problems but then they couldn't be studs- and that is the point in keeping them in tact. Perhaps it is just a run of bad luck but if anyone has any little things they supplement or do, would you mind sharing? I try my best to keep my animals in good condition and this hurts.
