My DS suffers from eczema, pretty much nothing clears it up except steroid creams, which i hate using on him.
We recently went away for a week and my mum looked after our dog. Mum ended up having our dog for 2 weeks, due to a couple of reasons.
During this time DS eczema cleared up heaps. We picked up our dog to tonight and ds's eczema flared up really badly, he had massive welts on his legs and was scratching like crazy
Ds has other known allergies (had pin prick & blood tests) but i had no idea he was so allergic to our dog.
So dog is 9yrs old, arthritis in his hips (on meds for it) has cancerous growth on leg (have already had it removed twice but keeps coming back). He is really in his twightlight years, but still very spirited and happy. if i had to guess id say he would have another 2 - 3 years left. He is too old & riddled with medical problems to adopt out, but we cant bear to see our little man in so much pain either. Mum cant have our dog permanately either.
DH thinks it might be time for our dog to go on a "long holiday" :'(
What do you think you would do?
