They took her in and they found a tumor on her spleen. She was bleeding internally, and so anemic her breathing was affected she needed a blood transfusion or she would be dead in hours. Once they stabilized her they were told it was Hermangiosarcoma – very common in Golden Retrievers. It comes on fast and she only had days to live if they didn’t do surgery.
Her owners didn’t want to give up so they emptied their savings account and did the surgery. Doctors removed a 6 pound tumor! She immediately seemed better but the Vet said it would only be temporary. In a few months, they said, she would bleed out. They kept asking, “but what if it is benign?” They were told that this has never happened and they should be prepared and just enjoy their time with her. One week later they got the results. This video is the moment they told Lily the results.
What a dog!
