    My dog Paco was diagnosed with lymphoma about 5 months ago. tests indicated he has the "indolent" T genotype. This is good as it is expected to progress more slowly. He was doing very well, not much in way of symptoms. Until recently. His dermatologist discovered it because she noted he had a number of enlarged lymph nodes. In September I had a Comeback Kid party for him because he turned 11 and was so good. He is an English Lab and was playful still, swimming often, walking daily. Last couple of months he has started panting and having labored breathing at times, choking on food occasionally. His regular vet didn't find any new lymph nodes and asked me to videotape him. his blood work has increased white blood cells but is fairly good. emailed oncologist at U of MN and she wrote that it may be time to start treatment. in summer she had felt he was doing well and did not need treatment. she suggested that she have a consult with our regular vet, just a few days ago. so am waiting for that to happen. Some days he is pretty good and he remains pretty active for a senior dog.
