To my fellow bulldog owners,
My seven year old female bulldog (Helga) was diagnosed with Pemphigus Foliaceus about seven weeks ago. She is currently receiving excellent treatment from Colorado State University. Her treatment consists of Azathioprine 50 mg every other day, Niacinamide 500 mg twice a day, Doxycycline 100 mg twice a day, and Dexamethasone 4mg 1 & 1/2 tablets per day. Her skin has slowly began to get better but now she is very lethargic and very weak. Today she had her bimonthly vet visit and her liver counts were elevated and the vet. has decided to decrease her Azathioprine to every other day. I am curious if anyone else out there has had any experience with this disease and could share their experience.
