NATIONAL CANINE LYMPHOMA AWARENESS DAY

november 7, 2021

WHAT IS CANINE LYMPHOMA?

Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymph nodes and lymphatic system. This cancer may be localized to one particular region, or may spread throughout the entire body.

HOW COMMON IS IT?

Lymphoma is a relatively common cancer, accounting for 15-20% of new cancer diagnoses in dogs.

WHAT ARE THE SIGNS/SYMPTOMS?

In dogs with multicentric (systemic) lymphoma, the first sign of lymphoma is swelling of the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes located in the neck, chest, armpits, groin, and behind the knees are often the most visible and easy to observe. 

HOW IS IT TREATED?

Lymphoma is treated with chemotherapy. There are a variety of procedures used, but most consist of a variety of injections given on a weekly basis. Fortunately, dogs tend to tolerate chemotherapy better than humans; they rarely lose their hair or seem to feel significantly ill during chemotherapy.
