Didn't know if any of you Dobe owners have heard of this. Godric is our first Dobe who we bought from a reputable breeder. Towards the later part of July his third eyelids were swelling and he was producing a lot of mucous. We thought he was having an issue with environmental allergies. He was getting puss filled bumps all over his body as well, rash like. We had him at the Vets it seemed like every day. He was on all sorts of eye drops, medicated shampoos, antibiotics etc. Everything we had him on would work well for about a week and then his eyes would start to get worse. By the time the mucous started to attach itself to his third eyelids our Vet recommended us to see a specialist at KState Veterinary Hospital. We made an appointment and drove the 4 hours to see an Ophthalmologist. He was greeted not by one but by 4 Dr's. They were able to preform a biopsy that day. The were suspecting that he had this rare, what they think is genetic, disease. They themselves have never seen it. I guess there has only been a case study of 4 worldwide. Anyways we got the results back and it was confirmed, Lingenous Conjunctivitis. It manifests in the eyes hence the name but what it does if untreated is forms plaque like deposits on various organs and will subsequently kill them. So this poor guy has been on Azathioprine (chemo like pills), Prednisone, a compounded eye drop and and pred acetate eye drop. We also have to regular blood work up to make sure his kidney enzyme levels don't get too elevated. KState will be publishing a paper on him, since this is their first case and because it's so rare. I guess they are just guessing at what the treatment needs to be since all of the other dogs who have had this have since perished. I won't bore you with an even longer novel. Just wondering if you all have heard of this.
