This is a specialized group 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 (inflammatory bowel disease), 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 complete 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.
Please see the Guidelines tab at left for more information on membership restrictions, the group culture, and posting rules.
Disclaimer: Information in this group is for educational purposes only and not a substitute for your own veterinarian's advice.

(Please note: This group does not admit cats with diagnosed or likely large cell lymphoma, a different disease from small cell.)
The group is dedicated to Charlie. =^..^= b. May 1, 1999 d. Dec.28, 2015 RIP
