I choose to operate, after the procedure the vet said she didn't find any bleeding and no tumors and all the tests came back negative for cancer, she had a transfusion and put on 3 antibiotics, I feel the vet was too hasty in operating it looks like a transfusion and antibiotics would have worked. Yesterday Rocky began going down hill fast, I rushed her to the vet and this guy said she had a leak in her intestines probably from the operation, I decided to go for it do whatever to save her but she passed before they could operate. She was the happiest dog I have ever had in the mornings she would yap and yip when I got up, she walked beside me with her head against my leg and when I would come home after the shortest period of time she would act like I had been gone for days she was so happy to see me. She was 105 pounds of pure love (German Shepherd) she loved everyone she met and even got between two dogs that were growling at each other to break them up, she was six years old and after I retired I spent every day with her. My heart is broken and it just isn't fair because if the vet would have taken the time for testing instead of jumping into an operation she would be fine. I'll miss her for the rest of my life.
So sorry for your loss. I never trust vets, how would he know she had a cancerous tumor on her spleen unless he did an MRI. Make sure you find a caring vet and not one who tries to sell you things or scare you into buying heartworm medicine by showing you a bottle of guts, those are the charlatans who do operations for money and greed.
