Looking for help for my sister in Florida with her Beautiful 2 year old black lab named Ranger. He has not been neutered.
(Picture of the notes is a summary from my sisters diary of what has been done for him)
It just started in January of this year. He has been losing hair around his eyes in little areas around his nose though now itís mostly around his eyes. In that second picture you can see incredible swelling which is the pink areas that you see.
He has started scratching at his face and his underbelly.
They donít use any sprays or powders on him. He is on Trifexus for flea and heartworm protection. Although she has not given that to him last month or this month yet.
The last thing he was on was the prednisone which helped amazingly. But of course he cannot be on that too long and just recently came off of it and once again looks bad as in the pictures from yesterday.
Doctor says at this point Heís going to treat him as an auto immune disorder. But they will start with some blood work on Thursday even though he is on steroids. They need to start somewhere to get a baseline on him. Wondering if anybody might know what this might be and allow my sister to move in the right direction or ask the right questions to the vet? Anything any comments or ideas are welcome. Thank you thank you thank you God bless!
