😻 SPOTLIGHT ON FELINE LYMPHOMA:
🐈Although outcomes for treated cats are less predictable than dogs, treated cats live longer and tolerate chemotherapy well (even better than dogs!).
🤷♀️Why are they less predictable? Cats treated with multi-agent chemotherapy have response rates of about 50-80%, BUT the cats that achieve a complete remission tend to be the long term survivors (1 to 2 years vs 1 month with treatment). We just often do not know until we try who will respond, but they tolerate chemo so well and the cancer is often making them sick, that it is worth trying, in my humble opinion.
🙋♀️Yes, I would and I have treated my own cat for lymphoma. ... See MoreSee Less

🐈 SPOTLIGHT ON FELINE LYMPHOMA:
How do we treat lymphoma in cats? Just like people and dogs, lymphoma almost always requires systemic chemotherapy.
😺 The good news is that cats tolerate chemotherapy very well, even better than dogs! (And cats and dogs handle it better than people).
😺 So they experience very little side effects! (They do not lose their hair, they tend not to get very low white blood cell counts, and they have less GI side effects than dogs and people.)
🤢🤮 But since they can have some nausea from chemo, and some forms of lymphoma itself can cause vomiting and diarrhea, I take a very proactive approach to preventative medications. Check out this video for my top 5 preventative medications. youtu.be/I211tveubII ... See MoreSee Less
