Tumor of the Spleen Discovery: Caesar’s Story

Caesar, a 12 year old Labrador Retriever, was suffering from the usual symptoms that come with old age. But last April an X-ray showed something more severe.

Veterinarians discovered a mass over his heart and chest. A CT scan and blood work indicated that there were tumors located on his spleen as well as cysts on his back. Caesar would require open chest, abdomen, and back surgery with the support of oncologists and general surgeons.

Caesar’s mom took comfort in knowing that they had $10,000 in coverage for the diagnostics and surgeries to remove his malignant and benign tumors. The surgery was over 5 hours long. In post operations there were complications which found Caesar internally suffocating. Caesar had to remain in the hospital for five days to be closely monitored.

In September Caesar went back for another CT scan and there wasn’t a tumor to be found, indicating that he is in  remission. We are excited to share that Caesar is happy and enjoying his old age once again.
