    My dog Coco was diagnosed with T cell lymphoma around 4 months ago and started the Madison Wisconsin Protocol.

    Unfortunately, the 'strong' chemo treatments made her very ill and the cancer was still spreading aggressively. Consequently, the decision was made to only use the 'weak' chemo plus high doses of steroid tablets. (I think this is the old treatment before Madison Wisconsin was introduced.)

    The good news is that after three weeks of this treatment the cancer is finally reducing a little and looking less inflamed! So don't lose hope and despair (as I did....) if the 'best' chemo treatment doesn't work for your dog and you have to use the weaker alternative - it may turn out to be better for your particular dog!

    Please ignore the above post as it was a very short-lived improvement, and things rapidly went down hill a few days later.

    I haven't experienced this with my dog, but I can say it must be a really tough battle for you and your dog. Just keep holding on.
