I"m no vet, but it could certainly be cancer of the spleen. Only your vet can advise you, but sometimes if the spleen is removed, it will prolong life and make the dog more comfortable for the time he has left.

Sorry.:(

I wish I had more info for you but I am sorry I don't.
Speak to the vet about getting a consultation from a surgeon perhaps.

Sending positive thoughts

Sorry about your dog! :grouphug:

Your vet didn't want to keep the dog overnight for observation??
