Default Need good thoughts for TWO of my dogs! :(

First of all, Isen the whippet had a nasty looking growth removed and biopsied a couple of weeks ago. Biopsy results- Hemangiosarcoma.

Now I had to rush Mauno to my work yesterday with a fever of 105.8. He woke up with it, and it was NOT going down despite meds. So by 2pm he was on fluids and bloodwork running. Nasty systemic infection, scary as hell. He is still hospitalized.

Thanks everyone, I'm floored with both accounts. Isen is our silly Blue Dog, the "special" one that sometimes needs a safety helmet but loves everyone. I knew it was bad when the tumor ulcerated and started bleeding, but I was still hopeful. I have no idea yet if we caught it before it metastasized. Took the staples out last night, and he has two more suspicious lumps that were not there when we did the surgery.

Mauno was just horrible. He got out of his crate in the bedroom stiff and slow yesterday morning, walked slowly down the stairs. Took his temp right away, 105.1. Called my boss who said give him Cephalexin. He got two doses 8 hours apart, was hosed off, and in front of a fan and by 1pm his temp had crawled to 105.8. Work was closed, but another tech met me there and we got blood pulled and fluids going under the Vet's direction via phone.

There is no obvious infection, but his WBC count was very high. I hate that, how can I prevent it from happening again if we have no idea what happened, what is going on, etc???

As of 2am when I was there, his temp is down. He had a CBC run this morning, but I have not asked the results, I know the vet was doing surgeries on emergencies until 7am. I will let him sleep a bit first! The clinic is closed, but Mauno is still there with him. Hopefully tonight he will get to come home.

Tomorrow I take Lynx for an ultrasound and fetal HR check. I kinda want to forget it and hide under the covers for a few more weeks, though.

Thanks everyone. I'm supposed to pick him up tonight. Vet says he's doing well, temp has stayed down.

Wow that's scary! I glad Mauno is doing better. Really hoping those new lumps on Isen are nothing.


Hope everything goes well with Lynx. You have quite enough to deal with already.
