Book Description

This guide for the diagnosis and treatment of lymphomas in dogs and cats is organized into two parts: noncutaneous and cutaneous lymphomas. Assisting the practitioner in identifying lymphomas that can be treated and defining the outcome that can be expected, the practical guide includes detailed discussion about the assessment methods used to help diagnosis lymphomas. These include histological classification, immunophenotyping, AgNOR assessment, and clinical laboratory findings, as well as how these results determine the method of treatment. Lymphoma in Dogs and Cats contains detailed instruction for the use of standard chemotherapeutic protocols and radiation therapy along with different treatment options such as rescue and nutritional therapy. Tables summarize recommended diagnostic work-ups, clinical staging and recommended treatment protocols, while 25 color photos and 20 charts make it an exceptional quick reference source that every clinician should have on hand.
