Intestinal Lymphoma In Cats: Symptoms & Natural Treatments
What is Feline Intestinal Lymphoma?Feline intestinal lymphoma is the most common form of lymphoma in cats. Finding out your kitty has intestinal lymphoma can be devastating but there is hope! Lymphoma occurs when normal lymphocytes (white blood cells essential to the immune system) become cancerous. This type of lymphoma often develops after cats have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or irritable bowel syndrome. Most cats with feline intestinal lymphoma are seniors (9-13 years) and have a history of vomiting, diarrhea, IBD, and/or inflammation of the intestinal tract. Life expectancy varies depending upon the type and treatment. A holistic approach using supplements and diet changes can help extend the life expectancy and quality of life for your cat. Diagnoses of intestinal lymphoma is best made via biopsy. If a mass is present, it can be surgically removed at the time of the biopsy or it can also be aspirated. Intestinal lymphoma may not create a mass but rather a thickened or abnormal appearance of the intestine.
