Hello. My name is***** will be happy to help you. I may need to ask you a few questions to better assess your situation.
Did your vet just run bloodwork, or did they do an x-ray and/or ultrasound of the abdomen as well?
How old is he?
Is he showing any signs of illness?

I am here. I still have a couple more questions for you. What is his age? Is he showing any signs of illness?
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.
Hello,
I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. It appears your first expert had to leave the conversation. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
This is a possibly serious situation and I understand your being worried. Since I can't see and examine your dog, a little more information will help me.
How old is he? Is he eating well, acting normal, or does he seem sick to you?
How was the enlarged liver and spleen diagnosed? Did he have an Xray or an ultrasound?
This is an Info Request, to help me answer your questions about him. Rebecca
