    Richard - not sure where you are but there is quite a lot of research being done currently w/ canine lymphoma. U of Tenn CVM is starting a clinical trial using a cancer-killing virus. They are working w/ Mayo Clinic, as this has human potential also. U Penn is working on a vaccine for lymphoma, to be used in conjunction with chemo I believe.
    Might be something for you or your vet to look into, if you are close to either of these vet schools. If you want more info contact me at riskyriver@juno.com
    good luck!

    So sorry to hear this. I hope he beats the odds and has a good run left. I know you'll do everything you can do for him, but it still must be hard. Hang in there and do everything you can with him now.

    Take Care-

    very sorry to hear. I went thru this with a golden in 2005, I was told that it was 100% fatal and that chemo may give 6 to 18 months. As others have stated the Whisky's ill effects from the chemo was limited. He was bad after the second dose but tolerated everything else well. Other than some hair loss - comments about golden hair to a minimum please - he was by and large his own self. In the end, he went out of remission with a month of stopping the treatment and passed on within a week. I do not know if I would repeat the chemo, but I did get 6 months.

    Gander seems to be doing fairly well all things considered... He will have another infusion next Friday the 31st... Between the chemo and the steroids I think he may be feeling better... I'm sure it's only temporary, but everyday with him is a gift.


    Thanks again everyone for your thoughts and prayers,

    Sorry to hear about Gander. My avatar dog was diagnosed with lymphoma last July. It was devastating news to say the least. I am happy to say that 10 plus months later he is still with me. He went thru his initial protocol, finishing in December and stayed in remission for a month. I hunted pheasant and geese with him all last fall and he never missed a beat. After coming out of remission, we started on a rescue protocol and he responded very well. I was given 5-6 months with treatment as he was T cell lymphoma and he has beaten those odds.

    I am an vet tech who has been working in oncology and integral medicine for past 13 yrs. I have treated a lot of dogs for lymphoma. It is the most treatable, tho very rarely curable form of cancer. Most dogs do very well while on chemo. We have treated service dogs, police dogs, hunting dogs and dogs doing performance like agility and most continue on with their lives without any problems.

    As was previously stated only 5 percent are cured, but many get out to 13 to 18 months. A year may not sound like much but it is quite a long time in a dogs life.

    I wish you all the best with Gander. I am enjoying every day with Trooper. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions mostlygold@hotmail.com.
