Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. I apologize for the delay I was away from the computer for dinner. I am sorry to hear that your dog is not doing well.
Can you tell me what medication they put him on?
What testing having they done?
How long has this been going on?
OK I apologize for making you repeat the medication names for some reason that did not show the first time.
What you are describing sounds like an autoimmune disorder called Pemphigus.Unfortunately the only way to diagnosis this is via biopsy. I am going to give you some information on this to go over and I would suggest giving your vet a call tomorrow and ask about testing and perhaps trying an immune suppressant medication. Atopica works well for this condition in most dogs however some vets do prefer other medications. Click here for additional information
If your vet does not feel more testing is needed I would ask for a referral to a dermatologist.
I hope this helps give you some direction. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue.
