This is a picture of a 4 year old believed to have Canine Pemphigus. We are awaiting a biopsy. I have not been able to find a lot about this condition and was hoping to find help and advise here. What the picture doesn't show is the blisters around his left eye, nose and tounge. About a month ago, his ears flared up, and he was put on Predisone and Antibotics, his ears and eyes cleared up within a few days and he was weaned off the Predisone. A week after being off the Predisone his ears have falred back up. He has been back on the Predisone 2 days.
He is otherwise healthy and active. Thanks in advance for any helpful input.

It is a frustrating disease to deal with, because it is basically for ever - there may be periods of remission followed by flare ups. Good luck - let us know the results of the biopsy....

I'd be very interested to see if you get any more information on this topic, so I'll keep checking this thread. You are welcome to PM me if you need support or further info - as I said, it is a difficult problem to deal with, and comes with a significant amount of discomfort/pain for the dog.
