Practical Matters: Consider immunohistochemistry when identifying tumors
Comparing the microscopic features of tumor cells with their normal cellular counterparts is the key to diagnosing a neoplastic disease.
Practical Matters: Completely stage dogs with lymphoma to select therapy and help determine the prognosis
Selecting appropriate chemotherapy protocols and successfully treating dogs with lymphoma require complete clinical staging of the disease.

Localized primary tumors with a minimal risk for metastasis are commonly treated with surgery or radiation. But chemotherapy may occasionally be used to treat these tumors instead of or in addition to standard local therapy.
