How is lymphoma treated
Conventional treatment for lymphoma in dogs and cats involves chemotherapy.
Quality of life is always a big concern for pet parents considering chemotherapy as treatment for their pet’s lymphoma. Here are some interesting articles in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery and the Journal of Small Animal Practice regarding quality of life when using chemotherapy in dogs and cats.
What else can I do to help my cat or dog with lymphoma?
When helping dogs and cats with lymphoma, it is important to support the entire body so that overall wellbeing can be achieved. A holistic approach takes into consideration the importance of boosting and supporting the immune system, since a suppressed immune system increases oxidative stress.
Can these herbal remedies be used in conjunction with chemotherapy?
Yes. If your pet is on chemotherapy you may wish to further support their immune system, appetite, and quality of life with quality natural supplements. As the lymph system is complex, it is also important to help boost and support immune function while addressing the blood and lymph system.

Some pets can be finicky, if this occurs consider hiding the drops in foods most pet’s love such as fish, chicken or yogurt or a favourite treat. If your pet only eats dry food then soak a few kibbles at feeding time.
