Lymphoma: Where are we now?

Lymphoma

Lymphoma can arise in almost any tissue in the body.

It is the most commonly diagnosed haematopoietic cancer in the dog and cat; in fact, the incidence of gastrointestinal and atypical feline lymphoma is increasing.

Due to its varied presentation, it can be a challenge to diagnose confidently. Thankfully, advances in laboratory technology over the past decade have improved our ability to both competently diagnose and individualise a patient’s optimal treatment.

As clients are frequently motivated to treat their pets, it is important for clinicians to not only know about the basics of the disease and its diagnosis, but also provide all options for treatment.

By successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Recognise the different forms of lymphoma in the dog and cat

  • Know what staging tests are important for our patients with lymphoma

  • Feel more confident choosing the best chemotherapy options and safely administering chemotherapy

  • Have an understanding of the prognosis for the different forms of lymphoma in the cat and dog.

Veterinary nurses with a special interest in the topic are welcome to enrol in this course. Please be aware that the course is designed for qualified veterinarians and you should consider this in light of your knowledge and experience before you register.
