Merles and cancer (lymphoma)?


Recommended Posts

A friend is dealing with a diagnosis of lymphoma for her BC. The lab is taking a long time returning results regarding what stage of lymphoma. She doesn't know why (conflicting results? poor/unreadable samples?) One question that the lab asked was if there were any blue merles in the dog's pedigree (no).


Do blue merles have a higher incidence of cancer (lymphoma)? (When she related the story to me, she said blue merles (vs. red merles), but I am not sure if the lab specifically mentioned blue.) It would probably be better to ask if there is a correlation with merle coloring and cancer.


Thanks in advance,
