    Default Jagger's Allergy test

    Dr. Fugett called today. ( I love this man, he has been a life saver dealing with Jaggger). First thing he says is "He's allergic to everything". What???? Said Jagger's blood tests had severe reactions to :
    Chicken - pork - peas - grass

    And minor reaction to:
    Dust - dander

    He said so "basically he's allergic to everything including himself."

    I asked about scraping for testing other things. He said he could but he feels it would be a waste of my money. That Jagger has severe allergies and that knowing this they are very confident starting shots will help him. And to for sure keep him on the vegetarian diet.

    I asked about side effects and long term effects on Jagger. He told me that it's actually better to do the shots and stop the temaril p.

    So we start shots when I come back from New Orleans. I go in Friday to discuss how much it will all cost and a schedule so that I can have the viles shipped and do the shots at home instead of going to the office all the time.

    Eek. Have you thought of going to either the homecooked or raw route? At least that way you can control what meat he'll eat.

    Dr. Fugett is great. He himself has a bulldog Petey. So, he understands all the stuff we go through having to take care of a bulldog.

    In the beginning before I found his veggie food we were doing home cooked. He liked it and ate well. But he eats so much better when he has kibble.

    Ellie doesn't have allergies anything like Jagger so she eats the veggie kibble also. If I try to give him something else he won't eat. He demands kibble, like what she has. He will actually dump his bowl over. He's rotten.

    Just curious if you looked into cyclosporine for Jagger? I use it on my bully with severe allergies and it has been a real lifesaver for us.

    That's awesome that your vet understands bulldogs so well (and owns one to boot!)!

    Yes, it seemed like an endless task for me. I just broke down and paid for it. His allergies are so bed his hair will actually fall out and his eyes will swell. And God forbid he should eat something that doesn't agree with him. He will hack phlegm and has explosive diarrhea that he cannot control.

    Yes, it took a lot of searching and going through vets that did not really understand the breed to find him. He LOVES bullies and is very helpful.
