Customer Question
Hi my name is*****...

Hi my name is*****: What sort of animal are we talking about?

My mother and myself had a 10 year old dog a cougar hound she passed away this morning. Before she was sick through out the night, wrestles, panting a lot and sluggish nor did she want to eat or drink. based on what I described I was wandering if you might no or have an idea of what she died from.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dog. What is the dog's name?

Daisy she died just wandering what of.

I’m sorry to hear about your loss. The most likely cause of that acute lethargy, panting and then death would be a bleed into the abdomen.This is due to a tumor on the spleen that ruptures. If we catch them early enough we can do surgery to remove it. Even in those dogs, 70% will have cancer that metastasizes and causes death within 2-4 months.Ultimately it’s pretty painless as these guys pass out from blood loss before they pass away.I hope this helps bring some closure.
