Hello, I am sorry to hear Pete was diagnosed with lymphoma. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. How was the diagnosis made, was a biopsy done? I am very sorry to say that if he has lymphoma, we are talking about how long a remission we can get for him, not a cure. Complete and permanent recovery does happen, but is rare. Usually we get dogs with lymphoma to go into remission with chemotherapy, for weeks to months to even a year or two, but that is usually the best to hope for. There are a lot of variables, like is this a T cell or a B cell lymphoma, are you working with an oncologist, are you will do to chemotherapy. If this were my own dog, I would be working with a veterinary oncologist, and deciding if chemotherapy is right for me and my dog. Let me know what other questions I can answer.
