Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the kitten?

Hello, this is Dr. Sara. I am very sorry to hear this. Was the ultrasound suspicious for Lymphoma? Would you and are you considering a biopsy and chemotherapy, or are you looking for more "hospice" type care.
