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.

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.

Oh boy… well at least you know. I need to do the testing w/Winston, I'm tired of this guessing game!!!

I hope the poor baby is on his way to getting some relief. He's so cute!
