The only vaccination legally required in states is rabies, and this is because of the significant health risk this disease poses to humans, as well as dogs that are receiving chemotherapy in general, can still have an appropriate response to vaccinations and be immune to the diseases for which we routinely vaccinate. There is also no evidence to suggest that an otherwise healthy dog receiving chemotherapy for cancer cannot tolerate vaccinations.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THESE ARE GENERAL GUIDELINES ONLY, AND SHOULD BE DISCUSSED WITH YOUR VETERINARIAN IN LIGHT OF YOUR DOGS GENERAL HEALTH AND YOUR STATES LEGAL REQUIREMENTS. Eight months later, he is healthy and happy with no obvious problems we are very pleased to say. Furthermore, dogs with lymphoma or compromised immune systems for any reason should not receive modified live vaccines.

There are variety of other types of vaccines available. Eight months later, he is healthy and happy with no obvious problems we are very pleased to say. Third, there is the question of whether dog with lymphoma is actually three part question.

Every dog should be evaluated as an individual based on his risk, potential exposure to disease, and general health. Lili Duda, VMD, Section Editor of the OncoLink Veterinary Oncology Menu, respondsThe question of vaccinating dog with lymphoma can mount an appropriate immune response to vaccination in other words, can he develop protection against the disease for which he is being vaccinated? This is question because both the cancer itself and the treatment for cancer that is, chemotherapy can suppress the immune system. not larger to any degree.

Third, there is the general question, which is subject to much current discussion in both the veterinary community and dogowning community at large, as to how much and how often dogs should be vaccinated. AS GENERAL GUIDELINE ONLY, vaccinations probably provide immunity for much longer than the year currently suggested by vaccine manufacturers, and adult dogs will have adequate immunity if they have been vaccinated within the past three years.

The researchers concluded that breath analysis has the potential to provide substantial reduction in the uncertainty currently seen in cancer diagnosis, once further work has been carried out to standardize and expand this methodology.

Dogs were trained to give positive identification of cancer patient by sitting or lying down directly in front of test station containing cancer patient sample, while ignoring control samples. During the study, the dogs were presented with breath samples from the cancer patients and the controls, captured in special tube. Subsequent studies published in major medical journals confirmed the ability of trained dogs to detect both melanomas and bladder cancers. All cancer patients had recently been diagnosed with cancer through biopsyconfirmed conventional methods such as mammogram, or scan and had not yet undergone any chemotherapy treatment.
