CAP for dogs??
I wasn't sure where this belonged, but I was wondering if anyone has heard of CAP for dogs.
About a fortnight ago my dog developed a sore on the bridge of his nose, it has since spread to cover most of his muzzle and ears in blisters and sores. He's lost most of the fur in these area and it's driving him crazy with itching. It really upsets me to see him like this.
The vet did a biopsy and says he thinks it's auto-immune, a form of Lupus in dogs that is similar to psoiasis. There's apparently no cure and the only route left for the vet is to knock out the dog's immune system for the rest of his life, he's only 6 and super fit.
Can't believe this is all coincidental. My mother was diagnosed with MS 5 years ago; I got Fibromialgia and arthritis 3 years ago; my wife is now showing signs of arthritis and Lupus (she's only 25 and was always healthy); and now even my dog has Lupus.
Our dog is our baby; begining to feel like the universe has something against me :(
Any advice? Has anyone tried a combined antibiotic protocol on an animal or know someone that has? On the plus side, my own condition has improved slightly, so I do think the protocol works.
