My dog's nose is losing pigment and now there are a couple of depigmented spots in the corner of her eye as well. From what I have read, DLE is a relatively benign form of lupus in dogs - we live in a VERY sunny year round climate and keeping her out ofthe sun is out of the question, so I'm hoping to find a good topical sunscreen to help the situation. Have found some natural sunscreens with shae/cocoa butter, safe for her to eat. Any suggestions??

I have a 4 year old bluenose pit that has Lupus, he has had lesions on his head and nose, as well as various other body parts, that will bleed and get very sore. It wont heal and he has been on prednisone since last march, and has tremendous weight gain and his liver enzymes are high. Do I have any other options beside for Atopica? I can't afford that medication.

Hi I learnt a few months ago that my 8 year old Bassett Hound has the skin type of lupus - the less severe form of the illness thank goodness. What is the prognosis for this illness generally considering his age considering he sees the vet pretty regularly since he developed this 5 months ago and considering he is on medicine to treat his condition that I'm adamant about giving to him exactly the way my vet prescribed. I know it's a serious illness but My dog seems to be doing well. My vet said we can't cure it but we can control it. Also an important question I had can this mild skin form of lupus ever suddenly turn into the more severe form if lupus?? THanks for your help!
