Janet,

One would think there would be treatment, but to be honest, most researchers
aren't that interested in curing cat illnesses.  Usually their discoveries
are a result of trying to find cures in human medicine.

Anyway, a lymphocyte count that high (38,000) is really suggestive of a
lymphoma.  You know it's interesting about vitamin C.  Recently they have
looked into treating people with non Hodgkin's lymphoma with IV Vitamin C
and had some good success.  The research was abandoned in the past because
oral vitamin C was studied and not as effective.

Additionally Vitamin A, Vitamin D3 and Vitamin E have been proposed to
help.  You could get these at a natural food store and add them to the
diet.  I can check into the dosages.  A high quality wet food like Wellness
works well for mixing in supplements.

Although I think a combination chemotherapy and orthomolecular treatment
(high dose vitamin) would work best, I understand how finances can be
limiting.

To give the vitamin C IV, you have to bring your cat to the clinic and have
a slow infusion.  They can put in a catheter so you can do repeat
infusions.  Sally would know more about the specific protocol and doses.
You also need a vet willing to try it as this is not the common approach.
I'll try to contact Sally.
