- Boxer (dog breed), animal pathology, blood serum, cattle, chickens, eosinophilia, immunoglobulins, metastasis, skin lesions
- A 9-ycar-old boxer dog had rapidly progressive cutaneous lymphomatosis. There were pulmonary metastases, marked peripheral eosinophilia, eosinophilic infiltration of the cutaneous lesions, and a moderate heterogeneous elevation of the serum immunoglobulins, especially those with gamma mobility. The disease had similarities to viral-induced cutaneous leukosis of chickens and cattle.
