So long story short my only 1 1/2 year old female Husky has been experiencing ongoing health issues. Started with a seizure, constant ongoing urination and thirst, multiple back to back awful heats, anxiety/ panic attacks, ongoing long term runny stool, odd smelling urine, etc etc etc. She got many tests done. A few months back ( before the previously planned spay ) she had a urinalysis done, it was very concentrated and she had high white blood cells. They tested 2 weeks after and she was fine. These issues have been going on for over a year now. Her back to back heats were awful. The last one in particular. Every time we would schedule a spay she would start another cycle quick after the previous one. The last one lasted 4-5 weeks, she bled excessive amounts one time, another time brown coloring, another day thick gooey/ chunky blood. No infection.
Vet decided to risk it and spay her after this last awful heat cycle. She got spayed today. It ended up being a busy day at the clinic. A different vet ended up doing her surgery than we signed off on. I am not sure they looked around extensively as instructed. When I asked per pickup, the tech looked confused and said “ well, her organs are all there, sometimes a dog will be missing a kidney, and they are good color. “ The thing is our actual vet said they check every patient’s organs during a laparoscopic but she wanted my dog’s ( Lyric ) to be checked in depth as she worried there is a tumor causing all these issues. The tech also said the only thing off was that her uterus was very large. She did not mention anything about infection.
My questions; 1, would a vet see any tumors with the simple look around of a laparoscopic spay? Or could they have missed something by not checking every nook and cranny? 2, what is your opinion on the cause? I am waiting to see if her symptoms go away now. Could it have been a hormone disorder? And 3, what causes an enlarged uterus besides pyometra ( that they didn’t mention )? Is it genetic? Could it have caused her past symptoms? She said it could have caused them, and the urinary issues/ incontinence.
