Hello all....my 11 year old ( Honeydog ) has just been diagnosed with epitheliotropic cutaneous lymphoma...quite a mouthful huh...it is rare and the prognosis is not upbeat. We are seeing a veterinary oncologist next week, but was wondering if anyone has any experience or knows anything about this..thanks in advance.
All I know about it is that it is really, really, really rare. I'm glad you're seeing an oncologist for their opinion. I'll add you and Honeydog to my "puppy prayers".
I am sorry I don't have any info for you but I am sending good thoughts and prayers.

My first lab had cutaneous lymphoma. I'm glad you're going to see an oncologist. Unfortunately we were given 6 - 8 weeks without treatment, but we battled for a year by doing chemo. In all honestly, I don't know if I would do chemo again with a dog. For the most part he did okay, but there were times when he didn't and ended up in the ER. My boy was 8 when he was diagnosed and did make it to his 9th birthday. The oncologist will have different treatments for you to consider. I wish you all the best.

Just adding to the good thoughts and say I am sorry you are dealing with cancer.
Thank you all for your good thoughts...Kassabella, I see you have dealt with canine cancer in the past. Kassa was stunning.
On a completely different subject, many years ago I worked at a trading firm with an office in Wellington. They had a young guy on the desk who I did a good amount of business with. Smart kid, figured he had a future. His name was John Key.
Just wanted to add that I am sorry your girl and you are dealing with this. You will both be in my thoughts.
