    Default Lymphoma

    I'm new to this forum so forgive me if I'm not posting this correctly. I have a three year old male English Bulldog that was diagnosed with Lymphoma in mid October 2014. We saw an Oncologist on October 30th. We did not opt to do any type of treatment. My question is...has anyone dealt with a bully with end stage cancer? He has just recently started showing physical signs (ie large nodules, loss of appetite). We have a wonderful vet...I just wanted to get feedback from actual owners. He has always been on a grain free diet, but he isn't interested in his food at all. Thanks in advance for any advice!

    So very sorry your baby is sick and you are going through all this.... I have no experience but maybe a bland diet would interest he?

    Sending lots of prayers to you both

    We had a French bully who was diagnosed with Lymphoma and passed 3 years ago, we didn't take the chemo route. He had just turned 8 years old. Once the diagnosis was made the symptoms really really got aggressive and he only made it about a month in a half. You having your boy for 4 months after seeing the Oncologist is awesome. Once our boy stopped eating there wasn't much I could do to entice him to eat, whatever he will eat I would give him. My prayers are with you..

    I am so sorry to hear of your Bullie's diagnoses. At this point, I would give him anything that he would eat.Cat food, tuna, yogurt, anything that he might eat and enjoy. Sending prayer for your family

    Lilly, my corgi, died from lymphoma - when she stopped eating I knew it was time for her to pass. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do. I am now possible facing the same thing with Mickey, my rescue bully. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
