SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - You may have heard about an organ called the spleen, but what does it do, and how can it develop life-threatening problems?

If you want to contact Dr. Visser, you can reach him at the Center for Animal Health by calling 888-PETS-VETS or you could always send him an email at
