Autoimmune Skin disease / Help for Beardie with SLO
« on: July 16, 2020, 11:28:12 AM »
Hi My 2 year old Beardie McTavish was recently diagnosed in Nov 2019 with SLO.

Hes had prednisolone and antibiotics and pain killers  hes on vitamin e and zinc.He had nail bed infection.
Hes been doing really well and two weeks ago another flare up with bad nail bed infection again

I clean his paws with hibitane

Just after some help and advice please as my vet is new to SLO as well so we are learning together.

He cut the nails really short under anaesthetic and we went on the steroids and antibiotics and he appeared to do really well.

This time he sedated him to trim nails and gave me antibiotics and pain killers but one paw is not healing well.

This time he only gave me an amoxicillin antibiotic but dont think this is the right one.
 Is there a cream that I can use to help I'm using Yumove boost in his food



My name is Audrey and I have 2 beardies and a mini schnauzer.

beardies are Mcduff and Mctavish and mini schnauzer is Narra.

Mctavish was 2 on 5th November and he had an issue with nails separating from quick believed at first to be injury related.

However yesterday my vet took him to theatre and discovered that it was worse than we thought he said as soon as he tried to clean etc they were splitting and some fell off.

So they made decision to remove all nails and start treatment for SLO his bloods and nails have been sent off for testing.

So any advice and help would be greatly appreciated.

Hes currently on antibiotic and prednisone painkillers and I started vitamin e yesterday.Salmon oil.
