Gastrointestinal lymphoma, also known as alimentary lymphoma, is one of the most common kinds of lymphoma in cats especially. It is characterized by the presence of a solitary mass, multiple masses with or without regional intra-abdominal lymph node involvement, or as a diffusely infiltrating disease of one or more parts of the bowel. The cause is not well understood, but factors like genetics, FeLV and environmental factors such as exposure to cigarette smoke can play an important role.
As the alimentary form can affect any part of the stomach or intestines, it often causes symptoms like weight loss, lethargy, loss of appetite, vomiting, and diarrhea. An abdominal mass can also develop and might be felt on a physical examination. Some pets may experience enlargement of organs like liver and spleen as well.

Gastrointestinal Lymphoma kit can help minimize side effects from chemotherapy, reduce discomfort and improve quality of life during the treatment of gastrointestinal lymphoma.
Which pets are most affected by this condition?
The cause is not well understood, but factors like breed and genetics, cats positive for viral infections like FIV and FeLV and environmental factors such as constant exposure to cigarette smoke and other chemicals can play an important role in Gastrointestinal Lymphoma.
How does my veterinarian will diagnose Gastrointestinal Lymphoma?
If the external lymph nodes are enlarged, this can help with diagnosis. However, diagnosis may be more difficult if masses are located in an internal organ. Therefore, laboratory tests such as blood work, biopsy of the enlarged lymph nodes or other organs, radiographs (x-rays) and/or ultrasound, bone marrow aspiration, FeLV test, and endoscopy may be recommended by your vet. There is also a specialized test to determine the type of lymphoma (B Cell versus T Cell) once the preliminary diagnosis is made.
What are the treatment options for Gastrointestinal Lymphoma?
In most cases, successful treatment of gastrointestinal lymphoma will require chemotherapy that may involve on or multiple protocols. Surgery may be needed to relieve any intestinal obstruction caused by a tumor. Chemotherapy is usually started when the disease is first diagnosed, even if the pet does not seem ill, because waiting may reduce chances of long-term survival. Frequent recheck visits are needed to administer the chemotherapy and to monitor the response to medications through regular lab work as well.
