Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I am reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.
Dante's condition sounds very serious.
Constant blood loss is a serious concern. When enough red blood cells are lost the blood won't clot well.
The "cysts" that you mention may be a sign of hemangioma or its malignant form, hemangiosarcoma. They both produce blood filled cysts.
Conditions that prevent new red blood cells from forming might also be involved. Especially kidney disease in an older dog.
I recommend that you have your veterinarian check Dante to determine what could be done.
Italian Greyhounds are one of the breeds that have a higher incidence of this condition.
Your vet will probably do a biopsy and send it to a histopathologist to determine exactly what the lesions are.
I hope that this has helped. If you have any further questions please let me know. I am here to help Dante.
