You’ve diagnosed your patient with lymphoma - now what? You’re suspicious of leukaemia – how do you confirm the diagnosis? Confused about immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, PARR, and when to use them?
Haematopoietic tumours, especially lymphoma, are common cancers diagnosed in general practice. This course will provide a general overview on a variety of haematopoietic neoplasias in dogs, giving you up-to-date knowledge to approach them confidently in practice. We will discuss novel techniques and treatment options for canine lymphoma and review the clinical presentation and treatment options for lymphoid and myeloid leukaemia. It will also cover less common haematopoietic cancers such as plasma cell and histiocytic neoplasias.
