My Byrdie (shephard mix) hasn't been feeling well this week and I thought she had eaten something or it was just the heat. She wasn't acting herself this morning and her stomach was swollen so took her to vet. She has a mass on her spleen that ruptured. They pulled blood out of her abdomen. He said there is too much blood to operate now so she goes in Monday morning possibly for surgery depending on blood work results. If it's cancer and it's spread he said surgery wouldn't be an option. His hope is she absorbs some of the blood this weekend. She just turned 9. He said if she goes down hill this weekend it will be quick and there isn't anything they can do.
He said in the past he would do emergency surgery but most that have that much blood don't survive and the outcome would be better if we waited. We are home and she is pitiful and I am a mess.
Any thoughts or support would be so appre
this absolutely stinks. If she is going to pass away I hope she finds a comfortable sunny spot in the grass and simply goes to sleep quickly. It is easier on everyone than a long drawn out illness.
but better would be the miracle of her healing and you have a few more wonderful years together.
