Lung Tumors experience by - nike
my dog aged 10 developed histocytosis sarcoma in her lungs. She is being treated with Interleukin inhalation for a period of 3 months without interruption. At first she was given Interleukin for 10 days but since the tumour slowed to grow the vet has recommended this new therapy. There is no cure for this disease but this therapy will make her more comfortable and it will hopefully prolong her life..........
