    Oh that sucks. I am so sorry. A biopsy though is the only way to gauge the stage and type and treatment can often be different. Please get a second opinion before making any final decisions.

    I would also be trolling the net when I knew my options to find out what others did in a similar situation.

    That's awful for a dog so young. I'm so sorry that things haven't turned out well :-(

    Thank you for your thoughts. The little fella is showing good health and having a great time.

    We are getting a biopsy done on Monday and there may be a possibility we can do chemotherapy in the cairns region. For now though we plan to give him a great weekend

    I'll keep you posted.

    Here is the blog of one of our top agility handlers who went through lymphoma with her BC for a couple of years. She details the treatments the choices and the journey in this blog.

    Quick update;

    He had a great weekend running around beaches etc. Wouldn't even know he was sick.

    Then he had a biopsy done on Monday. What a terrible day that was. He look awful after the biopsy and was in the worst state he had been in. Thankfully he had recovered by Wednesday.

    We got the biopsy results back today and chemo will start by next Tuesday in Cairns. Today they also started him on a PREDNISOLONE just until he starts chemo.

    Thank you guys for all your comments

    Very sorry that your beloved Dusty has been diagnosed with Lymphoma and I know how devastated you must be on receiving this diagnosis. Too many of us have received a Cancer diagnosis on a beloved dog, and it is shattering news. I lost my beautiful 10 year old Lab boy to a very aggressive Cancer (Hemangiosarcoma) in Sep 2009 and whilst we went down the Chemo route, it was only a matter of time, due to the aggressive nature of his Cancer.

    I hope your boy responds well to the Chemo and he does have youth on his side, so that can bode well for him. The Cancer journey can be very emotional with ups and downs along the way, so take one day at a time and love your boy hard. I am sending him lots of positive thoughts and healing vibes Dusty's way and you are both in my thoughts.
