Default another dog with lymphoma

hi all,

looking for some cogent info on lymphoma in dogs. my paris is an
eleven year old springer spaniel and has lymphoma behind the left knee
cap. we're going to the oncologist tomorrow to discuss options. so
far, the one thing that i've been hearing is to not do prednisone, as
once you begin that course of therapy, you can not change your mind and
do chemo. this may not be true, so info would be appreciated.

regards,

abby frantz

My experience with lymphoma is too old to be of value. When looking at
information anything more than about 3 years old is probably outdated.
There have been a lot of advances. My sister's dog and a friend's lived
for several years after diagnosis. What is possible for your dog, of
course, can't be fortold.

There are a couple of good yahoo groups for sharing information on dogs
with various cancers. This is also the particular cancer in which diet was
found to play a role so you might want to look into the neoplaysia diet or
homemade versions of it.

You will hear plenty of conflicting information. We just aren't at a
place yet where we can really say we have the "right" answer. The fervor
with which people argue doesn't change that. All you can do is research
and go with your gut feeling.
