gastrointestinal lymphosarcoma

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

My cat was diagnosed with gastrointestinal lymphoma about 2 weeks ago. he has been taking 10 mg of prednisolone per day and 2 mg of Leukeran every48 hours. He has not responded to Leukeran. in fact, he quit eating on Saturday and I have been force-feeding him A/D twice a day since then.

His vet thinks that he should have responded to the Leukeran and he is starting treatment with Lomustine on Saturday.

Does anyone here know about treating lymphoma in cats? I am not sure what to do anymore. He looks worse every day and he has lost alot of weight. The vet had me stop the Leukeran.
