Background: Treatment of lymphoma in dogs by long-term chemotherapy has favorable results. However, the efficacy of short-term, maintenance-free treatment protocols on remission and survival times in dogs has not been determined.

Animals: 77 dogs with histologically or cytologically confirmed diagnosis of lymphoma.
