    Oh no Marcela!!!
    Maybe the oncologist will have some options for you. General vets don't know everything. Praying and crossing my fingers dear!

    Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this for Nina and for you and your family.
    I hadn't heard of it before so went looking around the net. I did find this on the wiki page

    On September 10, 2012, Dorothy Cimino Brown and Jennifer Reetz , two doctors from University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine were published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine Volume 2012 (2012), Article ID 384301, 8 pages doi:10.1155/2012/384301 for a research article on "Single Agent Polysaccharopeptide Delays Metastases and Improves Survival in Naturally Occurring Hemangiosarcoma" The study found that the mushroom extract "I'm-Yunity" used in the study is able to delay the progression of metastases and provide the longest median survival times reported to date.
    This is a link to the study that you can read:

    Maybe something to mention to your specialist if they don't have any other ideas. Leslie can you send this to Marcella for me, just in case.

    hugs,
    Sharlene and Molly Muffin

    Thank you Sharlene, Valerie, Glynda, Lori, Simba's mom and my sweet angel Leslie. I'm sti l kind of paralyzed in a state of disbelief , denial prob..'m usually very good under pressure and I can summerge myself into my computer researching in all my bookmarks about health issues in pets and all types of studies all around the world...but I know that if I do that it will be real. As I told Leslie I'll have to slap myself to snap out of this state and then I'll have to inhale Nina's energy and of course let my soul be fueled by the good energy of my wonderful friends here at Canine Cushings. I feel so blessed to have you all in my life.
    Another dearest friend from this group also gave me helpful info, so I'll be checking out. Sharlene thank you very much, ill .read the document for sure. Another good news is that near where I am right now, there is a veterinary cancer center, it's in Santa Fe which is 90 minutes away from Taos, and they practice both traditional and alternative therapies, so maybe we are in the right place. I 'll start evaluating all our options soon. Again a thousand thanks to all of you, and of course tgank you Truffa, Squirt, Lulu, Harley and all your furry babies.

    Dearest Marcela,

    I am so incredibly sorry. My heart is with you and Nina. Have you had a chance to talk to Bettina? I know she has been through a lot when Niko was diagnosed. Please keep us posted.

    Big ((((((hugs))))))

    Marcela, I am so sorry to hear this news, completely not fair. Why is it that the sweetest things in our lives have to go through so much? You and Nina will be in my thoughts. Take care.

    Marcela,

    When I first read about a possible rupture of Nina's spleen, I thought, "Oh, no! That sounds like hemangiosarcoma." I lost an 8 yr. old Eskie to it back in 2004.

    I'm so sorry that this is Nina's diagnosis. I hope the doctors can extend her life and find a way to help her.

    Hugs,
    Bonnie and Angel Criss Ann

    Thank you Bonnie, Naomi and Terry.
    Terry I'll try to contact Bettina.
    I haven't heard from my vet and the consult with the oncologist yet. At least I'm already starting to read the links you gave to me and started moving from my paralyzed state.:)
