Fatty spleen removed from blue-eyed beauty

Storm Karkanica 11yF Husky - Spleen myelolipoma - Face - PZ 2015

Can you believe these beautiful eyes?

Storm is an 11 year old female Husky who went to her veterinarian because she wasn’t acting like herself. The referring veterinarian felt a mass in her belly during her physical exam.

We performed a spleen removal at Brunswick Veterinary Hospital.

Fortunately, the mass was benign (spleen myelolipoma). It was just a fatty tumor in the spleen! For comparison, the coin at the top of the picture is a quarter.Storm Karkanica 11yF Husky - Spleen myelolipoma - PZ 2015
