Has anyone used safflower oil as a supplement for a dog with lymphoma?

Grace has just been diagnosed with cutaneous lymphoma. It's a rare cancer with a poor prognosis, but she has an atypical case--it's very localized on her neck. As near as we can tell, she's had it for at least 5 months and it hasn't seemed to progress.

One of the things suggested to us by the dermatologist was 10 t. of safflower oil twice a week. Supposedly, safflower oil has some effect specifically toward lymphoma Wondering if anyone has ever heard of such a thing, whether they'd tried it as an adjunct treatment, and if they saw any benefit?

Turns out that safflower oil is rather difficult to find around here, so I'll have to see what I can find online. Does anyone have any suggestion as to a good brand to look for?
