has anyone else's dog had the misfortune of having this horrible condition?
it seems pretty rare based on what my vet said
and worst of all we have no idea what caused the allergic reaction
in the evening she had small raised lumps
by the morning she had scratched the skin off her nose so i took her to the vet
day2 she was much worse so right back to the vet
over the next three days it just got worse and worse so they took samples to get tested
after the biopsies were taken
after it was diagnosed as eosinophilic furunculosis she was put on a high dose of steroids and anibiotics for 3 weeks
only now is she starting to get back to normal.
it was basically a severe allergic reaction to some sort of insect bite that was so extreame she developed this rare condition, somthing like 9 cases in the whole of the uk i think the vet said. so they know very little about it
they think it could have been a spider, or tick or something like a mosquitto (not that we get many of them over here)
ive got a backup supply of steroids incase we ever notice the flare up again
but i wondered if anyone else had experienced such a reaction or illness
