I lost Ellie on February 25th of this year. She had turned twelve last December.
I took her to the vet in late January because her neck and throat were swollen. The vet suspected puncture wound or insect bite, but even with prednisone, the swelling didn't completely go down.
On the Monday, she wasn't herself. She didn't get up to greet me when I got home so I knew something was wrong. My husband dropped her off at the vet the next day for them to take x-rays and I was to pick her up after work.
When I got there they told me there was a huge mass on her spleen and that she was bleeding internally, although not too bad at that point.
Never did it occur to me that I would have to euthanize her that day. We didn't suspect cancer but the vet feels the swelling had something to do with it. It totally took me by surprise. I couldn't even take her home for the family to say goodbye, but felt it was the right thing to do. I did not want her to suffer.
I miss her and I, too, had no idea it was so common.

We lost our little girl, Radar, 2 years ago. She seemed fine in the morning. Later in the afternoon we noticed she was much different. The next day we took her to the Vet. She was bleeding into her chest. The following day we had her put down before she collapsed from it.
She was 11.
Thank you for posting this. I didn't realize this was so common.
