Lisabethe123, I am very sorry for your loss of Teddy Bear. He was too young to leave, but this evil disease doesn't care taking so many of our beautiful friends.

Howie

Hi everyone. It is very comforting having this forum to share our Howie's condition. Howie's my sidekick. He's eight and had been in excellent health. Last Saturday night he suffered a gran mal seizure. A shorter period seizure occurred the next day. The emergency clinician performed labs, labs showed no disease. Howie's abdomen was sonogrammed, his lungs were x-rayed. Lungs were clear. An intact mass was found on the spleen. Howie was placed on Phenobarbital and released. He has had no further seizures. A splenectomy is scheduled for tomorrow morning. We are praying for Howie and hoping that the splenic mass is benign. However, the relationship between the splenic mass and seizures is unclear. A visit with a neurologist provided stroke as a possible cause for seizure. If he has brain tumor(s) we hope they are benign. If the brain tumors are malignant we hope reasonable chemotherapy along with palliative care are available. We're just hoping for the best.

Does anyone have experience with the above issues?

Golden Retrievers are the sweetest.

Thanks!
