Subject: [ferrethealth] Re:High lymphocytes

Hi Nancy
If the lymphocyte count is that high, then you
have to look for lymphoma.
With the lymphocyte count of 33,000 first have
a pathologist review the blood smears
to see if they can find lymphocytes from lymphoma in
the blood. If none found, then it is time for an ultrasound
to look at the spleen, liver, kidneys, GI tract, etc.
A biopsy may be needed to diagnose lymphoma, but it
is time to go on a "tumor hunt" to find what to biopsy.
Hope that helps,
Jerry Murray, DVM
