    50% of splenic tumors we see are benign, 50% are malignant (about)

    So there is still hope, and still hope that with surgery to remove the spleen, it might go okay.

    Jingles for you!

    Haha on not missing a meal that was around the same time Zippy was sick and although Trudy NEVER eats people food she was getting a lot of dog cookies and hot dogs for pill time so she had gained about four pounds. She is fluffy though and claims she's big boned hehe!

    I picked her up this afternoon and she's doing much better! Leaving early tomorrow for the vet so lee the jingles coming!

    Thanks for your thoughts and comments, the whole family appreciates them!!!

    Jingles to Trudy.

    My Belgian had an emergency splenectomy at Tufts and was diagnosed with metastasized hemangiosarcoma and give one to three months to live. He lasted just shy of four *years*.

    All good thoughts your way.

    As for insurance, I have PetPlan on my dogs now. My second choice would be Embrace. See http://www.petinsurancereview.com/

    Big Jingles.

    I lost one dog Sparky, a border collie cross, to hemangiosarcoma.

    However on the bright side my aunt's dog, GSD, had a mass on her spleen at age 10 that was removed. She made it 3 more years.

    Jingles! This thread could not come at a more ironic time for me!

    Tuesday night I was going to buy the PetPlan insurance for my dogs (but got caught up doing things and never got to it) and Wednesday we had to take my Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever in because she ate a week's worth of Claritin D. Things are looking up since I get to pick her up in a few hours but she spent over a day in the ICU to recover. Boy do I wish I had bought the insurance!

    Hope the surgery went well for Trudy!

    As for insurance, I signed on for the free 30 day trial with Trupanion for my new puppy and have already used it (they paid out, no questions asked, after I took her in with suspected parvo). My vets offered me both PetPlan and Trupanion however they felt that Trupanion had the best feedback so far - less payout issues with their clients, etc. I will definitely be continuing the insurance with Trupanion on my girl, as bills add up quickly! Trupanion seems to be the most reasonable and have the least exclusions (including hip displaysia coverage if you want it).

    Doing the math, I figure insurance is a better option than saving up, personally. My Dobe came up with a fungal infection at the back of her nose (over her turbinates) about a year and a half ago now (she was 2 at the time). $6,000 later and no insurance...she is a healthy (but very very expensive, haha) dog. Just putting aside money, we never would have saved up $6,000 by the time she was 2. I figure at say $50/month (with Trupanion, my quote is less than that per month with a $150 deductible, but just to make number crunching easier...) that is $600/year and $6,000 after 10 years. Well there is a strong likelihood that anything worth going to insurance for (surgery, major medical/illness) could equate to that quickly, and prior to the dog being 10 and you having that same amount saved up! Make sure though your deductible is low, as though costs add up quickly, they usually do so in small increments. That $6,000 did not come in one bill, it was in increments of $500, $1,500, $2,500, etc.
