For those of you who don't know, Murphy has been diagnosed with Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia (CLL). We have been tracking his lymphocyte count over the last 6 months and it finally crested 60,000 (61,000 to be more exact). I think normal is around 1,000. He has no symptoms (lethargy & lack of appetite) at present, much to the contrary. He is still active and always hungry (what beagle isn't). After much research, his vet wants to start chemotherapy. She wants treat him before he does show any symptoms. We go to our oncology consult tomorrow.
