Subject: Lymphoma, can I help perk her up?
Message-ID: <>

I have an older girl, about 6/7, who was diagnosed with lymphoma about 6 months ago. She has responded really well to 1mg daily of pred.
Last night she wasn't doing that good. She seems very out of it and lethargic. She's usally up like a shot when she hears the door being opened and this morning she just looked at me. She ate a tablespoon or two of soaked ferret food and hills AD but thats nothing compared to her normal appetite. She will drink a few drops of water from my finger if a take her to the bowl.
She also looks rather disheveled as apposed to her sleek smooth self. Her spleen has been enlarged from early on and it hasn't changed much for us to comment on recently. This however has caused
extra presuse on her back legs which she's struggling to keep on the floor without sliding.

any help medical or pallative would be gratefully recieved.

Thanks in advance
