He'd been sluggish the last few weeks, but vomited bile up 3 days ago and then ate nothing for two days. Brought him to the vet I've met and become friends with here in Hollywood, Fl. Dr. Barboza took an x-ray and discovered he had a ton of tiny stones in his bladder and his spleen was enlarged.

He went in for surgery this morning and Dr. B~ found two nodes in his liver and has taken biopsies for the lab. He thinks they may be fibroid and the liver is changing due to age. We'll know for sure next week when the tests come back.

He's waking up from the anesthesia now and doing great.

Since he'll be 13 in July, every day with him is a gift as far as I'm concerned. He is a loyal, good natured love bug and I'm so happy right now I could fly!!!

Anyone else had bladder stones removed from their puppers and how did they fare?

Sandy looks like such a cutie. I don't have any experience with gall stones. Just wishing your girl a very speedy recovery!

Dash had to have stones removed years ago, granted he was younger then Sandy at the time but his recovery was fine. It was another case of trying to keep him quiet when he did not want to lay around recovering. We found them because he suddenly got very sick and would not eat or even move one morning so I called the vet and told him that I thought Dash was very ill and they had me bring him right in and his temperature was very high.It turned out he had a uninary tract infection (was possibly going septic) and stones. His stones tested out to be calcium oxalate so he had to go on a special diet to prevent them and never had another stone.

I wish Sandy a speedy recovery and do hope that the liver nodules are nothing serious. You are right that everday with him is a gift. Jazz will be 14 next month and that is how I feel about each day with her. Here's to a quiet night followed by days of healing and good news for both you and Sandy .
