Holistic Treatment for Dog Eye Pannus
Dog Eye Pannus #1
My 18 month old Border Collie "Bennie" was recently diagnosed with dog eye pannus (see attached photos). The dark brown spot is at the 8 o'clock- 9 o'clock (5mm) on his right eye.
Longterm prognosis/treatment: Immunomodulatory treatment for both eyes for the rest of his life.
Prescriptions: NEOPOLYDEX & TACROLIMUS.
Seen by OPTHOMOLOGIST on April 23, 2013.
Bennie seems to have no discomfort. His eating and playing is normal.
He has a history of a dog attack 6 months ago causing a emergency visit and "stitches" were given under the same right eyelid. At that time there was no concerns mentioned about Bennie's eyeball itself.
The Opthomologist office noted that this was not a genetic factor but a immunity factor.
I am interested in the holistic approach of healing for Bennie and whether you think he will NEED to and MUST be on Pharmaceutical drugs his whole life as recommended by Optomologist/Vet.
I would like recommendations on immune supplements, vitamins, food, and if there is a cause/reason for his immune system attacking his eye area. If these are needed please provide exact dosage requirements.
He has a scheduled return visit to the Opthomologist in 3 months.
Bennie is a Black and white Border weighing 48 lbs. at this time.
Thank you for your help in this matter... we want the best for Bennie!
P.S. I am very aware of the chemicals that exist in soo may foods, environmental products, and toy products. Please advise on this too.
I would also like to know if there is chemical allergen testing for canine.
