    I'm sorry to hear that Pupernickle has Lymphoma and can understand your concern. However, it's wonderful that she is able to have chemotherapy and excellent that the Oncologist is pleased with her progress. Sending her lots of vibes that she continues to improve.

    dear rabbits united members,--pumpernickel [yesterday]-passed the blood test for the next cancer pill-[which was administered]-no knowledge of these proceedures so it seems odd that one has to be approved for another pill.--sincerely james waller from the other kent-usa

    I know from personal experience that you need to have a blood test prior to each dose of chemotherapy. This is to check the different levels of the components of the blood, in particular white cell count. They would delay giving the chemotherapy if the blood result showed an unsatisfactory level of white cell count, maybe waiting just one more week for it to come back to the required level.

    Sending more vibes for Pumpernickel.

    I'm sorry your cat is poorly, but pleased he has responded well to his first treatment. We see lymphoma in cats sadly quite commonly at work, and find most do well on the treatment fingers crossed for you x

    I am sorry to hear of Pumpernickle's diagnosis but it sounds as though she is already responding well to the chemotherapy. I hope that she will continue to do so. Sending special vibes for her, over the pond to the other Kent in the USA
