I brought my 10 year old dog to the vet because he was having spells where he would just collapse and have no energy for several minutes or even hours at a time over the last weekend.
Of course when I get to the vet, he is fine, but an xray showed what my vet thought was an enlarged heart, but he was very unsure and said I needed an ultra sound.
So I took him and they said he has a mass on his spleen and it is most likely bleeding internally. They said it could be something called hemangesarcoma. He said the easiest way to describe it is that it is a bunch of internal tumors that bleed. He is telling me I need to give him immediate surgery to remove his spleen. Then they would biopsy the tumors to confirm the type he said.
So what to do??? His blood levels are low, so he needs a transfusion to raise some number so he clots during surgery. I just dunno what to do. At the moment he is fine, but the vet said he could die the next time the tumors bleed.
Surgery is costly, and he will be in pain. Then they said if it is that cancer, it will grow on his liver, and he has maybe 2 months to live!!!!
I just dunno what to do.
