Hi - My boy Conner hasn't been feeling so well for a couple of weeks & back at the end of December we took him into the vet to get checked out. He is 17 and already has diabetes & stage 2 kidney disease along with a Megacolon....I know it's a lot! At that time bloodwork didn't really show anything too concerning. Vet recommended giving him some Prilosec, which we did for 8 days. He seemed to perk up a bit but really didn't want to take the pill which we crushed up and put in water/tuna juice. We did start to syringe it into his mouth in order to get him to take it. Last week he seemed like he again felt unwell and didn't really have interest in eating and didn't have a bowel movement for 5 days (he wasn't really eating too much during that time) so we took him back in yesterday thinking he had another issue with his megacolon and would need an enema. Vet calls yesterday and say his lymphocytes are considerably higher and he wanted to send it out to the lab. Today he calls and says that he is pretty sure it's either acute leukemia or lymphoma. At end of December his absolute Lymphocytes were 1905 and on Monday they were 35,000. Just wondering if anyone out there has any experience with high lymphocytes and whether it could be anything else? I need to call some oncologists that he gave me and see if anyone can even see him. Of course they mentioned the possibility of chemo--has anyone gone through that with an older cat?? Any tips, thoughts? Just taking a stab in the dark to try and gather as much info as I can so that I feel like I'm making an informed decision.
