Spike (the black & tan on in the avatar) has been at the vet's since Monday. He has been sick since Sunday. All can quickly since he had a thorough check up and tests when he had his teeth cleaned last month. His liver , heart & spleen are greatly enlarged stomach lining are thickened.. His red blood cells are "exploding".There looks to be cancer in an area that they cannot do a needle biopsy.They are not sure that even if they did exploratory surgery & removed the suspicious area that he would recover. nothing they have done has helped. I'll be going over in a little while with some jerky and to hold him until he crosses over the rainbow bridge. DH & I are both crying. He can't handle saying goodbye so I will be going myself.
