Is only 3 1/2 years old and we are completely devastated. Spleen was removed with emergency surgery, tumors on spleen and liver. Treating him with chemo at Blue Pearl in Tampa however prognosis with chemo is 4-6 months.

Very grave prognosis- if anyone has dietary, holistic or any other advice during the short time we have left please let me know. Pictures and info at

Lea, I have no advice, but just wanted you to know how very sorry I am that your pup has gotten this rotten diagnosis. Try to keep making sweet memories; they'll help you down the road.

So sorry to read your heartbreaking news. Maxx will be in our thoughts and prayers. Hopefully others that have gone through similar with their dogs will see this thread and offer some advice. There's lots of goldens on this forum that have survived the odds given by vets by months, even years so don't lose hope.
We're thinking of you! Maxx is a very beautiful boy.

There is a member on this forum "Mr. Bojangles" who had a dog with this diagnosis. I remember reading about the dog's story as it was around the time our Casey had passed. Perhaps she will see your post and can advise you.

I truly understand how upsetting and shocking this is. My first golden developed lymphoma at age 2 1/2 years.

((Hugs)) to you and Maxx.
