When Lily the Golden Retriever got sick overnight, Dani and her husband took her to the veterinarian and got the terrible news that she had a tumor on her spleen.
“She was so anemic her breathing was affected and we had to make a fast choice. They told us it was hemangiosarcoma, that more than half of Golden Retrievers die from it,” Dani wrote. “It comes in fast and she only had hours to live if we didn’t do surgery. Even if we did, she’d still only have months. There was only a 10% chance that it was the benign kind and they said in 25 years it’s never happened.”
Dani and her husband were not ready to give up on Lily. They emptied their savings account and they proceeded with the surgery. Vets ended up removing a 6 pound tumor. “She immediately seemed better,” Dani wrote. “But they said it would only be temporary. One week later we got the results. This was is breaking the news.”
