His spleen ruptured and was removed. All test results have been fine.
I can post a pict of the incision; it is healing really nicely.

What causes a spleen to rupture??

So glad he's on the mend! I love that pic of him you posted. He needs a smooch on the nose :)


I'd love to see his incision - Cyrus' was nasty imo, would love a comparison pic.

I swear I've seen this in more pits than anything, it's like they just can't wait to get rid of their spleens. Although the recovery rate is so good that if I had to choose something big to happen for my dog this would probably be it. Glad he's doing well! :thumbsup:

fingers crossed for a speedy recovery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HUGS!


Thanks! That is really cool! Patcheeno is Honored!


how the heck do you manage to carry him up and down stairs?
Well if he didn't have a belly full of staples outside and stitches inside it would be easy, but the angle I have to pick him up at is awkward for me and I'm not that big. He isn't a big boy, but he is big enough that it is hard for me. As he is feeling better it is worse because now he is wiggly too.

What causes a spleen to rupture??

From what I understand spleen can rupture, from masses, tumors, injuries, ...not sure what else

Awww what a cutie!! Glad he is on the mend!!

Have they identified the cause of the rupture yet? (one more thing for me to now worry about...I really think I should live under a rock...)
