My 4 year old Golden (Samantha)was diagnosed today with Lymphoma. It appears to be in her bones. Her white blood cells are missing, and her red blood cells are very low. She also has an elevated calcium level of 14.7. Symptoms of lack of energy were present for the past few weeks, but not bad enough to be alarming. As of two days ago she stopped eating. If she does eat something, it comes back up in 10 or 20 minutes. My step-son wants to cut football practice to be with us when we put her down tomorrow. I had no idea that Goldens are twice as likely to die from cancer than other breeds (60% of goldens will die from cancer). I love the breed, but i doubt I will get another one.. I will feel like I am rolling dice.
