Just a side note, but my dog had his spleen removed in emergency surgery due to a spleen disease that comes from eating raw wild game. We did not feed our dog any but think someone threw some in the yard hoping to just make him sick. So if your dogs have been around raw wild meat and start acting ill, not quite eating as much, not playing like before, please get them checked. We almost lost our dog. He lost over ten pounds of his 68 pounds in ten days. I'm assuming everyone on this thread loves dogs, so pass it around to those you know.
