Meet Olive! She is a 10 ½ year old Beagle Mix that was brought in to see Dr. White for a possible hip or back injury when the owner noticed her limping after losing her balance on a pile of pillows. Olive was also not eating much. Dr. White did an evaluation and with the help of ultrasound and x-rays, identified a large mass on Olive’s spleen. Surgery was scheduled for the following day. Dr. Price and Dr. Stanley performed a surgical procedure to remove the mass and spleen. Surprisingly, the mass was about the size of a large grapefruit and was ultimately identified as a ‘benign hematoma’. Olive had her sutures removed, and according to her owner, Kara, has fully recovered and is even better than her former self!
