We just found out that our 9 year old terrier/chihuahua mix has chronic Lymphocytic leukemia. It was found during a routine CBC prior to having her teeth cleaned. We have to schedule an appointment with another vet to discuss treatment options. Has anyone had this in their dog? How did it progress? What kind of treatment did you do? Any info would be greatly appreciated!

The rosy periwinkle contains vincristine and those suffering from lymphocytic leukemia who take it have a 99% chance that the disease will go into remission. Vincristine has been been synthesized and , because of this ,treatment for lymphocytic leukemia has become for affordable for pets . Ask your vet about synthesized Vincristine.
