My buddy Milo has a large mass in the belly area.
My wife and I are torn in pieces. We have to take him for an ultrasound today at 4:45pm to see what's going on and how are we going to deal with this.
I'm at a lost of words and I can't stop crying.
I just hope for the best.

Thought I'd share since I've been posting so many pics of him in his soon 5 years of his life here....

Thanks

You have my prayers for a good outcome. We always think (and fear) that it will be awful news and that isn't always the case. I'm keeping your buddy in prayer and waiting for your update....

Oh no, prayers coming for you. You have one of the best animal hospitals in the country at Angell, I have brought several of my dogs there and would not hesitate, you are only 1/2 hour from Boston. My vets have referred me to them, and they are the best.

Thank you everyone

The ultrasound revealed a 3"x3" mass around the spleen area.
He cannot tell if its just a blood clot but he did find that it bled.. It it's the reason why milo got sick yesterday running a fever of 105.3 at its peak.

This helped me put the puzzle together.
Wednesday at noon I take him out as usual to the back yard. He saw something and ran for it probably a squirrel. As he got to the end of the fence, there is snow there that's was soft. As he tried to run over it he sank and must have hit the rock there in there the small ouch came from. I checked him there was no damage or even any discomfort that I've noticed. He was fine until later in the night where my wife noticed he was weak. From here it's was the vet.

Pretty crazy and not that I'm glad but if this did not happen I would have never known that the had this mass.

The doctor said it has to be removed and it is a low risk surgery and in the process he will loose his spleen. He cannot be jumping around (which he does) in order to avoid injury..

I'm trying to get the docs together for the next step.

Issac,
Many, many prayers for Milo's healing, and for you and your wife as you go through this with him. He is such a beautiful boy and I know you love him so much.

Isaac: Sending my very best wishes and prayers for you and Milo. I just LOVE him and hope that all goes well with his surgery tomorrow. You were wise to take him to the hospital so they can keep him calm. The doctors sound optimistic - so I am going to be optimistic, too, and think that everything will go well for him.

Best wishes and prayers for an easy surgery and recovery. Hopefully it's just a "lump" and nothing more to worry about.

My prayers still coming. I hope they were able to fix the spleen and hopefully was just blood around the spleen from the trauma received and not other type of mass. Milo stay strong :hp
