UPDATE: Canine Lymphoma Trial at CVS Angel Care
We are in a process developing a new therapy for dogs with lymphoma that harnesses the immune system to destroy its own cancer. With appropriate therapy we are able to not only enhance and improve their quality of life but also extend that life and reduce the need for chemotherapy. This non-invasive, fully-funded study is one in which we take animals that have lymphoma and willing families who are excited about exploring new opportunities that will enhance and improve the quality of life of a pet with cancer.

10 Common Signs of Neoplasia in Small Animals
Neoplasia (nee-oh-PLAY-zhuh) is the uncontrolled, abnormal growth of cells or tissues in the body, and the abnormal growth itself is called a neoplasm (nee-oh-PLAZ-m) or tumor. It can be benign (bee-NINE) or malignant. Benign neoplasms do not grow aggressively, do not invade the surrounding body tissues, and do not spread throughout the body.

Cancer cells secrete elements into the blood that inhibit the immune system from killing them. The LW-2 Canine Therapy focuses on removing these harmful elements without the use of drugs, chemicals, radiation, or complicated surgical procedures. This approach is also intended to limit the possibilities and side effects traditionally associated with cancer treatments.
