Resumo

LOBETTI, R G. Lymphoma in 3 related Rottweilers from a single household. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2009, vol.80, n.2, pp. 103-105. ISSN 2224-9435.

Over a period of approximately 1 year, 2 sibling Rottweilers and their dam in the same household developed stage IV and stage III lymphoma, respectively. All 3 initially responded to doxorubicin chemotherapy but relapsed after approximately 3 months and were subsequently euthanased. As no obvious environmental trigger could be identified in these dogs, it is speculated that an underlying genetic predisposition could have played a role in the development of lymphoma in these related dogs.
