Hi there, just wanting to see if there was any advice you could give, my 3.5 year old male has always had a sensitive stomach and I finally have him on Royal Canin Hypoallergenic food does the trick stopping sloppy and bloody poops. About a year down the track, at the start of this year I noticed a small wound on the back of his rear paw, nothing major, kept an eye on it eventually got worse after a couple months and spread to his paw pads, had a biopsy and blood test that apparently didn’t reveal anything, other then possible allergies, and he was put on Apoquel. Seemed to heal and do the trick for about 2months, now it’s come back worse then before (finding lesions all over him). I have been washing his paws when he comes back inside, switched him into indoor only except for bathroom breaks and stopped taking him out for walks as his paw pads got to the point of bleeding all the time. Taken him to a new vet which has now switched him to Cyclosporin, (after trying double dose of Apoquel and antibiotics). Which he has now been on for 2 weeks (he hasn’t been accepting it well, first night spent hours trying to poop and vomiting, vet advised he will adjust, now 2 weeks in and another night of him trying to poop for hours and vomiting...) I’m at my wits end, trying to do what’s right for my buddy but nothings working. Any insight to other Shepherds you might know of having similar issues and what their solutions ended up being would be so helpful. His quality of life is just terrible now and it’s not what I want for him. Please any info would be really appreciated. Photo is from after his biopsy etc, when he originally started to heal back up.
