Hello...possible SLO boxer dog
« on: June 23, 2021, 06:36:16 PM »

Hi all hope I'm doing this right. Great to find this page. My boxer dog is seeing a dermatologist next Wednesday. I work at a vets and its likely she has SLO has she has all the symptoms so they've referred me on. She's lost about 11 nails in last 3 weeks. Ive added some fish oil to her food & waiting to see what they say. Very upsetting and worrying of course 😞

Have you seen the information here?: http://cimda.co.uk/smf/index.php?topic=22.0 Also if you use the search facility on the main page there are plenty of posts with regard to SLO that you may find helpful before your vet visit.

Hi and welcome

I am sorry that your Boxer has SLO.  It is a very painful disease but the good news is, it is not life threatening  and it does not have to be treated with immunosuppressive doses of steroids.

If you would like to email me at    cimda@aslog.co.uk     I can send you my SLO seminar notes, which should provide all the information that you need.

Jo
