Key findings about T-zone lymphoma

New findings show that T-zone lymphoma may be less prevalent in dogs who receive Omega-3 fatty acid supplements.

Dogs that receive Omega-3 fatty acid supplements, or have hypothyroidism, may be less likely to develop T-zone lymphoma (TZL), a slowly-progressive disease with a high incidence in older Golden Retrievers. These findings were recently announced by Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers at Colorado State University, and were published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine. To reach their conclusions, the researchers arrived at their results by studying detailed health history questionnaires as well as blood or biological samples from more than 350 Golden Retrievers recruited through Morris Animal Foundation’s Canine Lifetime Health Project.
