I have plans to ask the exact same question. Our vet runs a CBC (Complete Blood Count) every week before doing chemo to make sure his white cells and platelets are at good enough levels for treatment but she has yet to explain if that also indicates progress. We go to chemo again on Wednesday so I will ask if there is a way to know how he's reacting.

The best news is he acts like himself for the most part. He typically lays low the day after chemo but bounces back quickly to play to no end with his best Boxer friend next door

Thank you for the vibes, all!
