Wow - you've really got an odd case on your hands. I think your best bet here is to post your question to Dr. Cheng on the Ask a Vet forum. Keep us posted on your pup's condition. :-)
We've had Siberian huskies for years.
The fluid could be due to worms or possibly an allergy to his vaccinations. Sounds like you're doing all you can. I hope your boy is alright.
i hope you little guy is ok. maybe it is environmental. it just seems strange that two would have the same problem. dogs are like people different things effect them in different ways and that could be why you other dog isn't effected.
hello i'm going thru the same problem with my 9 yr old black lab have done the test and has been drained of 9 lbs the first time and now 2 weeks lated she is looking pregant again. i.m confused as what to do next ,change vets i am going to have her drained again this week. any ideas thanks charlie
my dog's tummy has been getting bigger and bigger. have run tons of bloodwork testing for everything from cushings to liver issues and more. everything normal from bloodwork. has ultrasound and exray which showed a very enlarged liver area. belly continues to get larger. vet says biopsy may be risky, due to age and clotting issues. going to run more bloodwork in two day and to check for clotting ability. right now, mistified as what issue is and what to do.
Wow, I feel bad for you. I cannot believe they drained that much fluid off a 4 1/2 month old puppy??? I'm so sorry to hear you lost Maya and, yes, my first question would have been are they related. Do you have their pedigrees and are you sure they aren't maybe line bred on the same line? Do you understand how to read a pedigree? Have you contacted the breeder (s) to see if any other pups are affected with this? I would hope they would be honest with you, should that be the case. It could be they get, or have gotten, into something your Golden has not. I've been trying to see if I can find any info about the breed being predisposed to Ascites but don't see anything. However, I did find this link and it seems to have some good information and recommendations you might want to mention to your Vet, if these tests haven't already been done. Hope you can figure it out. Please keep us posted. Feel bad for you :-(
