In September of 2013, we (Dr. Gary Palmer and Dr. Robin Lewis-Palmer) diagnosed our own dog, Piper, a six year old half Australian Shepherd/ half Poodle with a non-curable form of Lymphosarcoma (cancer of the lymph nodes). After a lot of thought and discussing options with veterinary oncologists, we decided to treat Piper with chemotherapy – not to cure her because that is not an option, but to buy her some good quality time with us (predicted survival even with aggressive chemotherapy is approximately six months) . We have been very pleasantly surprised by how well she has tolerated treatment and are grateful for this time we have with her.
