hmm, my long answer from yesterday is not here- so I fear it did not work;

so a lot shorter this time - it is a pity no histopathology was performed from the cancer in the spleen, because this can be malignant; German shepards quite often get a tumor type called hemangiosarcoma - so I assume a TWH can get this tumor type too;
this cancer could go into the skin and it could cause a bleeding into the abdomen or a bleeding disorder...

do you have an abdominal ultrasound or do you know how the liver looks like ? do you have a platelet count or bleeding times ? do you have a blood type from your dog ? (a standard blood bag for a large dog is 450ml)

it is not possible to give a good medical information via a forum; but maybe you write me an pn?
