Default Mass on Small intestine

Hey folks - my basset was throwing up non stop for about 24-48 hours so i took him into the emergency vet in Phoenix. They did an ultra sound and ct scan - found a tissue mass on his small bowel.

He got rushed into surgery yesterday morning to remove the mass. He made it out, but obviously getting your intestines cut open is a pretty gnarly surgery.

He currently is at the vet hospital getting fluids and pain meds. But won’t eat.

Any advice or anyone ever been through this with their dogs?

Just went in this morning. Gave us IV bags for home, and gave him an anti-biotic shot to replace the orals. Said the shot will cover him for 3 weeks.

Also gave him an anti-nasuea shot. And some entice(sp) - to boost appetite.

They ran test and did x-ray. Everything checked out normal for post op, which was a relief. Just need him to start eating but they said could be another day or so

I have found that Basset boys especially, don't always cope with this kind of event..... mine is terrible after having a general anaesthetic, let alone major surgery like that.



I'm interested he's managed to keep his I/V line in - Frankie was ok for 36 hours apparently (he was kept in from Sunday evening to Tuesday morning) but after that he kept managing to drag it out (more as he moved around than anything else) which is why they decided to discharge him, with a ton of oral meds for me to give instead. Thankfully he was keeping them down even if his appetite didn't pick up for a day.



I hope your boy picks up.

Thanks everyone. We just got the call that it was indeed Lymphoma.

The good news out of this is that the lymphoma only was in the tumor, and not in the lymph node- but they don't know if has spread anywhere else in the GI tract.
