    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".

    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.

    Thank you...sorry for your loss. I am leaning towards just palliative care considering her age and prognosis, but should know more after the meeting with the oncologist. Appreciate your insights.

    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.
