Chloe was at her regular veterinarian for an annual exam. The veterinarian felt something unusual in her abdomen. A quick ultrasound was done, which revealed a splenic mass. Chloe was immediately scheduled for surgical removal of her spleen. After her veterinarian received the biopsy results of the splenectomy, Chloe headed to the oncology department here at Veterinary Specialty Care. She was diagnosed with splenic marginal zone lymphoma and high-grade splenic sarcoma. Chloe underwent chemotherapy to treat the diseases and she just celebrated her chemo graduation!
Chloe’s sister GinGin was at her graduation because she too is an Oncology patient here at Veterinary Specialty Care! GinGin was diagnosed with small cell gastrointestinal lymphoma back in 2015. Fortunately, this type of cancer tends to develop slowly and generally responds well to chemotherapy and approximately 70% of cats can live with this disease for 1 1/2 to 2 years. GinGin was diagnosed in June of 2015, so she is already beating all of the odds!
