Hi! I’m looking to help my sweet dog Edgar with his allergies issues and his behavioural therapy. You can read his story in written in French here
Edgar saved my life when he attacked a man that assaulted me during our walk. The man ran away and the police was called on the scene. After this incident, he stopped sleeping and became extra vigilant, attacking everything new to him.
I tried all in home remedies while trying to fix his allergies issues. Edgar had to be hospitalized before his first month of birth for severe allergies and for one year I tested all threats and food to find something that could help him. Edgar has severe seasonal allergies and food allergies. He now received Cytopoint every month and has a very strict raw food diet. He still does multiple ear infection a year and need a special bath to help him manage his allergies. He needs to see a dermatologist but, in the meantime, he’s comfortable.
For one year, Edgar had to battle between his post-traumatic syndrome and his allergies. For one year, Edgar did not sleep, nap or even relax. He had to run 2h a day minimum and was playing excessively. He had overcome a prostate issue, many ear infections and a lot of allergy problems. It went to a point where he had only hair on his back and his skin was extremely bloody.
I tried to help Edgar and called several dog trainers, I was declined by most and we did one year of sessions which did not fix the issue unfortunately. I tried a pill called Trazodone to help him out but it did not help since his condition was always there.
I went to seek help with behavioural therapy, this resolved Edgars issue in a week. We are still working on Edgar’s treatment but I got back my dog. Edgar is now on fluoxetine and doing well.
My sweet boy is a very healthy dog according to the specialist we saw, he will stick with me for a long time. They also said he was a very loving dog with a very good temper. He’s an official good boy and I have a paper for that!
I’m alone to care for him, managing his appointment and all the fees and getting a bit of help would make such a big difference.
