Lymphoma

"Your vet can treat, but not cure, this common cancer....

"Dogs undergoing multi-agent chemo-therapy for six months have an 85 to 90 percent chance of an 11-month or longer remission... Most of them require weeklky injections...

"'..dogs typically won't have any side-effects of chemotherapy" (Matola, Katie. "Introduction to Lymphoma." Dog Fancy, Mar. 2004: 51-53).
