She's a Field Bred Cocker Spaniel. I watched her for about a week thinking she was pregnant but could not figure out how. Turns out she wasn't. Took her to the vet this morning. Fluid in abdomen and low protein and albumin. Had to leave her for more tests. All the rest of the blood is good. Heart looks good. Dreading the answer. I'm thinking maybe cancer in intestines. She has no symptoms like diarrhea or vomiting. Just the fluid. She has gained about 3 lbs. So not losing weight. 3lbs of fluid. Temp was good. Just fluid in abdomen and low protein in blood.

Anyone else ever have this?

I hope everything works out, Bobby. It sucks when our little buddies get sick.

Have you ran her around any spear grass?
If its a possibility look up Nocardia.

No Kindall, I haven't. She's a Mama's dog so far. LOL She's a little soft around the gun and I am bringing her along slowly. The vet put her on a low fat diet...I mean real low fat 4%. Sent more blood, urine and stool sample to internal medicine specialist. She has no symptoms other than a fluid filled abdomen. Low protein and albumin in blood.

Have you pulled an abundance of ticks off her? My GSP was lethargic at the trainers and had a bloated abdomen full of fluid. It would actually slosh around and you could hear it. My trainer said he was just being thorough working the field. I was bringing him home to go hunting any way. When I got him home I pulled 20 something ticks off of him. Took him to my vet, and he had him on antibiotics for a month, his blood still shows positive signs of the tick sickness but it's not active.
What ever it is I hope they get it cleared up.

Have they done an ultrasound to look for the source of the fluid? How old is she? In older dogs it's very common to find a mass on the liver or spleen, and when it ruptures, there's excessive fluid. This will often not show up in blood tests etc.

As far as I know she has never had a tick on her. We keep them on ivermectin once a month and some kinda stuff from the vet for their backs. We also keep the yard sprayed. Thanks

She is 1 year and a half old. They did an ultrasound. No protein in urine. Waiting on more tests to come back. The vet did call today to check on her. If she didn't look pregnant you would not notice anything wrong with her. I hate waiting worse than anything.

Sigh. This kinda fits her. I'll mention it to my vet.

At least at her age, she should be able to handle surgery if it is a mass. We lost our old girl to a mass on the spleen last year. She was almost 14yrs old. Surgery would've been tough on her. But a year and a half dog is young and outcome of surgery would be a lot better.
How's her gum color? Activity? Food and water intake?
Please keep us posted. I hope it's an easy fix.
