Jazzabell is not doing well....

I took her to the vet today, as she has been throwing up several times over the past few nights. It appears she has an enlarged spleen, and the vet has a strong suspicion that it is hemangiosarcoma. I am terrified, as this usually results in a very sudden internal hemmorage and death results soon after. The vet says that she has about 2 weeks to a month before this happens. I am not sure what to do, it seems like she is deteriorating suddenly, and she is only 9 years old. Please, keep me in your thoughts, as it appears I have a decision to make, but right now, my brain is sort of numb. **** of a way to start a weekend......

Re: Jazzabell is not doing well....

So sorry to hear about Jazzabell. It is an awful decision to have to make. You just have to remember you will do your best for her and she will always love you for it.

Thoughts with you.

Re: Jazzabell is not doing well....

Richard, big warm hugs to you and Jazzabel. The world's most wonderfully pampered, spoiled, loved dogs live with you in your yurt. Jazzabell is fortunate that you care so very much for her. I am sending prayers to you and to Jazzabell. Please remember to draw from the comfort of Jazzabell and the other girls for now. Sending prayers your way...

Re: Jazzabell is not doing well....

This is very sad to read, is there any chance there could be another more positive diagnosis?

Hugs to you and all your girls.

I am very sorry, and also like Qyn, wishing that maybe there is a chance for a more positive diagnosis.
