Please help if you can!! My be able is 5 yrs old. She was on prednisone but I didn’t like the side effects, so we made a huge lifestyle change and she no longer needs it. Last Tuesday, I caught her dining on a dead rabbit… then 2 days later she had awful diarrhea… we went to the vet this Tuesday and she doesn’t have any parasites, but the vet gave her antibiotics as a precaution… now all her allergy problems are back and she’s miserable.. I’ve given benadryl but it’ helping at all…

Tucker has always eaten Science Diet food and has been fairly healthy…he does have PRA which is hereditary where he has gone blind. He started vomiting so I took him to his vet and found out he was dehydrated and have high liver count. He’s been there over night two times and the vet has put him on Science Diet LD and Denosyl and another chewable tablet. He eats it fine and has gotten better. The problem i am having is when I take him outside…he finds anything he can to eat. Is he not getting enough to fill his belly from eating this food?

Researchers have recently begun exploring the possibility that many well-known diseases have an immune component. Endocrine diseases like hypothyroidism or diabetes mellitus may be caused by immune rejection of hormone-producing cells. Kerratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS or "dry eye") due to the shut-down of tear production responds to the antirejection drug cyclosporine. Chronic active hepatitis (liver disease) may also have an immune basis. These and many other areas of medicine are being explored for possible connection to the complicated world of autoimmune disease.

A hot spot, or acute moist dermatitis , is an acutely inflamed and infected area of skin irritation created and made worse by a dog licking and biting at itself. A hot spot can manifest and spread rapidly in a matter of hours as secondary Staphylococcus infection causes the top layers of the skin to break down and as pus becomes trapped in the hair. Hot spots can be treated with corticosteroid medications and oral as well as topical antibiotic application, as well as clipping hair from around the lesion. Underlying inciting causes include flea allergy dermatitis , ear disease or other allergic skin diseases. Dogs with thick undercoat are most subject to getting hot spots.

Stanley’s allergy tests identified a list of food, insect, and inhalant al lergens, including chicken, carrots, rice, grains, fleas and flea saliva, cats and cat dander, mold, grasses, and trees. Schaff eliminated what allergens she could and used topical medications and the corticosteroid Prednisone to treat Stanley’s remaining symptoms. The topicals did not work, and the pharmaceuticals gave the dog polyuria/polydipsia (PU/ PD), a condition causing excessive thirst and passage of large volumes of urine. Added to his misery of itchy raw spots, weepy lesions, and a stinky, gooey coat, poor Stanley was now having frequent and unavoid able accidents.
