Aussie w/nose problem.....
« on: April 01, 2009, 04:01:03 am »
Hello! :)
I'm thinking of adopting a 5 yr old Australian Shephard....gr eat dog....only he's got some sort of allergy that he takes constant antibitotics for....his nose is all read & raw looking. :-[ His current owner had all his vet records, and biopsies, etc show no cancer or anything, just some allergy. Is this normal? Will it get worse? Shouldn't I be concerned about the constant antibiotics? Wondering what I should expect. Is this a serious issue? ???
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.

According to his current owner (she's bread & trained them), she's taken him to 5 vets and there is no exact diagnosis or name for it.  It is similar to Collie Nose.  It's not going to prevent me from getting him, just wondering what to expect and if it is going to become a serious concern.
