    Here is my boy this morning.... isn't he a handsome fella?





    And here is where his hot spot was:



    @jillh10 you asked if I was certain it was the food. My answer is no, not 100% certain, but I have been told by two reliable sources that hot spot behind the ears is a sign of particularly a food allergy. Not certain, of course. And I know his eyes are still a bit black around the eye on the fur, but he still gets eye boogers after sleeping for a long time. But his eyes are open wide, and he is not winking at me all day like he was. My poor baby. All I know is that this food is working well for him. The steriods are worn off by now and he is still doing well, so I this is only confirming the dog food theory. I am so glad, this has been a very long battle for him.

    He looks great!

    I was wondering more if the eye issue was related to the skin and ear issues - it sounds like it was, which isn't surprising because Linus used to have swollen eyes before I switched his food. I'm so happy for the you and the little man...it stinks when you know they don't feel good!

    I am going to say I *think* it was related. His eyes were probably swollen from the allergy to the food, causing his hairs to tickle his eye, causing him to rub his eye and damage it, causing the eye ulcers. As with Jesse, they said she had entropion one visit, no entropion the next, had it the next, did not have it, ect. So once I found the right food that did not cause eye swelling her entropion would go away. If the lower eyelid is swollen, it causes a rolling inward action and it would be like having your eyelashes brushing your eyeballs all day. Which makes you rub your eyes, which causes them to swell even more from the rubbing. A vicious cycle! The only cure is a good cone, antibiotics for the eye, and instead of jumping into surgery-- possibly finding the cause of the problem. I would bet that many cases of entropion are caused by allergies. Environmental or food.
