One man's commentary on his dog's cancer


What is Intestinal Lymphosarcoma?

Intestinal lymphosarcoma is simply a form of lymphoma (cancer of the lymph system) occurring in the gastrointestinal tract.  It accounts for only 5-7% of lymphoma cases in dogs.  A good discussion of this cancer can be found here.

The most insidious part of this kind of lymphoma is that it sometimes shows no symptoms until it has a serious foothold.  This was the case for Holly -- Nothing seemed to be wrong until she got a fever one afternoon.
