Hi, I am new to this forum, actually this is the first forum I have ever joined.
We found out this week that our beautiful dog Sommer has Lymphoma.
Our hearts are broken. She is only 5 years old and this is the last thing that we expected.
I wanted to get in touch with others who have gone through or are going through the same experience.
If anybody has any thoughts or advise I would love to hear from you.
Thanks.

Welcome to the forum unfortunately it's not under better circumstances. I don't have any experience with lymphoma but there are other members who do, they will be along at some point to help in whatever way they can. Don't give up hope...:grouphug:

Hi Christina. My cat Ares was diagnosed with lymphoma. Sadly, he didn't win his battle. For your puppy, if it's been caught early enough, remission and recovery is possible. If you have the means, look into chemotherapy. There have been a number of studies I would have done it if the diagnosis had been more optimistic.
