I'm so sorry that this is happening, Samuel. But it's really good that you took her in so quickly and that they are taking action very quickly too. I was doing a little googling on "splenic hemorrhage" and found that there are other reasons besides hemangiosarcoma for this type of internal bleeding, including something called "hematomas."

"Hematomas are formed by broken blood vessels that cause blood to accumulate in the spleen and are a common cause of splenic hemorrhage. They may be caused by previous trauma, or more commonly nodular regeneration, which is excessive production of splenic tissue. Hematomas may be quite large and are indistinguishable from hemangiosarcomas at surgery."

Many years ago, our last dog (before Heidi) had her spleen removed and it didn't cause her any problems. They also removed it because they saw some masses on it. They really thought it was hemangiosarcoma but it ended up being something else (I forget what), but benign. She didn't have the serious issue of internal bleeding that Kayla did, but I thought I'd just mention it because I'm really hoping that what Kayla has is also something that is not so serious.

Big hugs to you and your family and lots of good thoughts and prayers for Kayla that she will be OK. hugging

First off thanks to everyone for your support, thoughts and prayers for Kayla.

Quick update. Just got back from vet. Kayla's doing fine considering. A little drugged still as they are weaning the pain medication. She walked outside to urinate while we were there, so walking around a little which is an improvement from when she would not get up yesterday morning.

She should be able to come home tomorrow or Wednesday.

Currently back work so will post later with a few pics after Lancer's class. So probably late Calif. time. Sis fortunately is closer to the vet and will stop by to visit later so Kayla has the family contact (and to remind the staff that I am bringing her home before they get too attached!)

Samuel, I am so happy for the good news. Looking forward to your update.

when Kayla comes home it will be very important for the first 7 - 10 days that she doesn't jump around or jump up on things. It will take a while for things to heal and settle into place.

I had a St.Bernard mix that had a spleen torsion and once he was healed up he was fine. He was such a stoic dog that I didn't know any thing was wrong with him until it was almost to late. The spleen kept doing it's thing and got to be the size of a basketball which bruised all of the intestines. So his recovery time was pretty long.

I hadn't seen any recent updates of FB, so I'm checking in here - I'm glad to hear that she came through the surgery well and will be coming home soon. We've had lots of fun times over the years with Kayla and Lancer (and Samuel too!) and Dena, Keefer, and Halo on the beach at Fort Funston and by the bay at Point Isabel. Hoping for the best for a speedy and uneventful recovery. hugging
