    DefaultLymphoma

    My 5 year old yellow lab is in the process of having test to confirm or not the diagnosis of Lymphoma. Can any of you folks give me any advice or information. My wife and I are devastated. Thanks,

    Tom

    Hi Tom. I'm sorry about your boy. At this point I'll send my prayers up for a diagnosis of something besides lymphoma. Unfortunately, lymphoma has a pretty bleak prognosis. Prednisone can slow the progression and possibly give you more time. The main thing to keep in mind is the comfort of your guy. Listen to your veterinarian, and if you don't get the assistance from him/her that you want, you might seek a second opinion at a veterinary teaching hospital. Once again, my fingers are crossed for a different diagnosis. You guys will be in my thoughts. Let us know what you find out.
