Dogs taking steroids for allergies

My 2 & half year old Staff was given this as he has a pinkish skin underneath & the vet said it was better than frontline s guards against mange that he could pick up from foxes . I used it a couple of months ago .. Fine .. used again on Thursday , came in from work Friday & my boy seemed like he had had a stroke , he can not raise his head , collapses all the time on his front legs . I rushed him to emergency vet where he has spent the night he has deteriorated , they do not know what’s wrong they think its Neurological so he is to have an MRI on Tuesday …. How can a happy bundle of fun be so ill within 24hrs .. The only thing I can think is that I used this product & have since read similar stories … I’m praying my baby can get better & return to health . I have spent the last day just crying because I can not believe what has happened to him x

can manuka help healing a spay wound. ” 2 weeks on and a small 2cm section keeps weeping slightly and a tiny amount of blood (only overnight when dog in bed – fine during the day). Been checked by vets twice now and told to keep it clean. I clean it 3 times a day with boiled water and salt, a scab forms during the day but it always weeps a little over night -doesn’t seem to be healing. Should I give orally as well as topically – heard it is a good antibiotic too – my dog is small around / 14lbs. appreciate your advise (thought about putting a couple of ster strips on to hold it together when shes in bed)

My dog’s story- adopted him from the local animal shelter and within months he becomes an allergy dog. Spent thousands and countless vet visits before he went to a dermatologist. Atopica was the first treatment option and he developed two different tumors on it. Finally got him a chronic yeast infection, with maybe four flare ups a year with the weekly allergy shot. Moved him from NC to WA and he flared up so badly – paws swollen and ulcerated, bowel movements of only blood, we made the decision to put him down. The vet asked us to try one more thing – Apoquel. He has only been on it for five days but it is a miracle drug. I have read the potential side effects and have decided even if he has a shorter life due to his body not fighting off cancer cells, it is worth it. Atopica worried me more since it was originally intended for humans.
