Bacon had some allergy issues when we first got him, but then we switched his food to Fromm.
We have had cherry eye twice in his left eye and now we have it in his right eye. He had an infection in his left eye, and then got an ulcer. Right now the left eye seems to be healing finally... i guess its time to move on to the right eye now..

cherry eye. How are you trying to control it without surgery? I am nervous about surgery. She did not react well went put under when she was spayed. She ended up being okay and we had a great vet that saw some concerning signs and got her off it asap so no real troubles but enough to make me not want to go thru that again. Since cherry eye is more "cosmetic" we have elected no surgery for now.
I have been sooooo lucky so far. My girls aren't quite 7 months old, but so far-so good. They haven't had anything to complain about. I joined this group the day after I brought my first puppy home and I've tried very hard to do everything I could to prevent problems. Hopefully all will continue to go well.

@ Samsons mom-i spoke to a different vet that day because his was out, she said i had to wait till comfortis was out of his system and its usually a month supply so i wont be able to start till the 24th of dec, but his dr also called me and told me he wasnt really worried about the comfortis in his system because he was starting him in a low dosage, but to be on the safe side he said thats fine to not start it yet but prescribed simplicef 100mg until he can start his ivermectin....so am glad i did my own research because i have heard to many sad stories about vets over looking stuff and the bullys dieing!and i didnt want to risk it and thanks for the bendaryl info am still giving him that for the itch

his brother Merlin - elbow displasia, entropian, distachia hairs (numerous times) cherry eye in each eye, dry eye, allergies, UTI, blood in urine from kidney leaking, torn cruciates both knee's, and Lymphoma 3/12/10
Ziggy - palate resection, stenonic nares, seasonal flank alopecia
Cayenne - recurring ear infection in one ear
Midas - bacterial UTI, psudomonus pneumonia
Right now we are battleing with hives. She's been chewing her skin alot and i've noticed flees on her. It wasn't quite time for her frontline again so couldn't give her another round but got to last night. Just bought her a bed and a dog bone and now she's broke out in hives. So it's a battle right now to see if it's the bed, bone, flees or the outside since so much is blooming right now. I really don't think it's her food. She's been doing fine with that.
I've been really lucky with the boys. No problems for them except for the heart defect with Sebastian. Hopefully they will keep up the good luck and I won't have any major problems.

annie had a cherry eye done when she was 4 months ,we had put it back in a couple of times but as it kept popping we decided to have it taken away,she also had a bad reaction to fipronil in frontline ,at first we thought perhaps kibble she was on f4d,so switched her to raw feeding its been 9 weeks now since switching ,and at last shes calming down with the scratching,as it takes 3 months plus to get toxins and kibble out of her system fully ,ive ordered canine puriphy just to detox her liver for 1 month which should also boost her immune system and hopefully flush and repair any damage done by the kibble/fipronil ,as we dont which product caused the allergy in the first place im keeping her well away from both,karen
Duke had entropian surgery on his eyes around the age of 1 1/2 , he has allergies ( had him tested ) he is allergic to wool and some molds. Tried EVERYTHING, allergy shots, topical steriods etc . he takes a low does steriod every other day which does the trick ( I do not like this but it keeps him comfortable ) and no more itchies ..
he has no breathing problems is very active and just had his 6 month check up all bloodwork came back " great" according to the vet.
he also love to eat toys .. ( we had an ER visit a few weeks ago that was so scary.. he was sick for two days until he passed it ) so no more toys for Duke , just nylabones and balls that are too hard to chew!
My dog has no health problems but I think has lots of problems with regards to behavior. He has many behavioral problems that I can't manage.
