What can be a reason for a ruptured spleen is a hematoma, in a dog as lively as a CSW this can happen. You need histology to be sure. If it is genetic nobody knows as far as I am informed.

Hi Ina,

Thanks a lot for your answer
The dogs was quit old as far as I can understand, I just thought it was a bit strange that it happened to two siblings and even more now when you say that it is rare in CSW, but maybe it is just a coincedence ?
I don`t know anything else about the dogs in question.
What is hemetoma ?

Greetings Rolf
