Common symptoms of feline intestinal lymphoma include the following:
- Decreased or no appetite
- Weight loss
- Increased water consumption and urination
- Lumps on the side of the abdomen
Of course, these symptoms are also present with a number of other feline disorders — especially inflammatory bowel disease — so a clinical diagnosis is necessary.
A veterinarian or veterinary oncologist will perform a biopsy and test cells from the tumor, and once the test results are back, he or she can determine whether your cat’s intestinal lymphoma is low-, intermediate- or high-grade.
