One of my cats was just diagnosed with small cell lymphoma

Customer Question

One of my cats was just diagnosed with small cell lymphoma in his intestines and has been started on Leukeran and Prednisolone. I know to use gloves while giving the pills and scooping the litter boxes. Is it safe for my other cats to share the same litter boxes?? Just want to make sure please.

Dear *****,You are more than welcome. It is my pleasure to help such a wonderful person.You were told to wear gloves because Leukeran can suppress the immune systemAs long as there are no pregnant or nursing cats, or otherwise ill animals, the other kitties should be fine using the same litter boxes.Here is info on that medication: let me know how your boy is doing.Best wishes and prayers for him,Terri
