Hello,Customer

Can you please tell us how we can help you with your question about your dog?

The only information that came through is that he's on a super high protein dry and wet food.

Thanks for all your additional details.

Sure,

He had a spleenectomy 2 weeks ago. Diagnosis is hemangiosarcoma. I understand the prognosis. He's only 5 and has never been sick. Surgeon said his heart, liver and lungs were clear and gave us hope that we'd have 6 months, maybe. First week after surgery he was up and around and ready to catch squirrels. Great appetite. I had to restrain him. Last 4 days he's been listless and sporadic appetite and seems depressed. Classic "Anemia", to an internet educated, scared shitless, father.....me!

 

Any thoughts on diet or other? I'm probably taking back to clinic tomorrow. I'll do everything, to postpone the loss of my buddy.

Hi again, Art, and thanks for your reply with additional information.

I'm going to need to 'opt out' of your question and leave it open for other experts to answer.

I do hope your buddy will hang on for as long as possible!
