This group is a gathering place for caretakers of cats with known or suspected small cell lymphoma (SCL), as well as veterinary professionals, for discussion, information, and support. Also known as low-grade or lymphocytic lymphoma, SCL often presents identically to IBD, including nausea and/or diarrhea, and sometimes just weight loss. It is treated with mild oral chemotherapy and daily prednisolone and has a very high full remission rate and a years-long average prognosis with excellent quality of life.
Formed in 2014 as the first group dedicated to feline small cell lymphoma, the group is strongly geared towards evidence-based medicine, is up to date on the latest treatment protocols for SCL, and has "seen" more SCL cats, and suspected SCL cats, than most veterinarians. Our goal is to help cat caretakers become better educated and better partners with their vets as they navigate through diagnosis and treatment of this highly treatable disease. (Note: Starting April 2018, this group began accepting cats with large cell lymphoma, LCL. However, the group is still on a learning curve with respect to this very different disease and has not yet compiled substantial resources on it.)
Join us to learn more.
