We just got our diagnosis today....my golden retriever just turned 9 in Feb but she has lost 6 lbs in 2 weeks and was having a hard time going BM.... Lots of straining and tar like poop. Went to the vet 2 weeks ago and he gave her remydahl and another for constipation and seemed to help for a week or so but this Wed she wasn't eating again and very legargic so that is when we discovered how much weight she had lost. Ultrasound today confirmed it is in her spleen and liver. I am more than devistated as I love her so much. We are going to oncologist this Tues but need to know what to ask and what kind of expectations should I have. And should I investigate holistic ideas.
