Been thinking of Skye lately and hoping that the improvement is continuing.

How are you two doing?

How nice of you to ask - I was just thinking today that I should post an update.

Skye continues to do well. Her bum appears to be almost 100% healed and she rarely licks anymore.

I am still using the ointment 1X a day and will go to every other day next week. I'll stop if she continues to stay 'clean.'

She has gained a total of about 8 pounds since she started getting better - after years of staying the same weight no matter what. I think that feeling good and the new single protein food, Orijen 6 Fish have agreed with her. She is still slender, but not so spiney and ribby. (She is still only 68 pounds.)

Also her energy has been very good - she is playful and acts happy if you know what I mean.

I hope that if/when Skye has a flare up it will be as easily treatable. Skye will be back at work as a therapy and demo dog next week after staying home and mending for about 6 weeks.

Oddly, her pannus has flared up - I think she is bored and spends a lot of time looking out the window while I am at work. It has been very bright out - I have upped her optimune to 2X a day again for awhile.

I wish all of your dogs with more difficult battles could have some of the relief Skye has had.

I just saw this, otherwise I would have responded sooner. Tacrolimus (aka Protopic) is also what we used to treat Starine for PF. My vet also did not want to go the cyclosporine route until we exhausted all other optins. The Tacrolimus worked for Star, and as I recall, it was about the same time frame as Skye. She healed completely and after I took her off of it several months later, it never came back. It's been six years. In retrospect, the only thing I would have done differently would have been to discontinue it sooner because the black box warning on it came out a few years afterward. I was following my vet's instructions at the time and no one could have anticipated the black box warning which came out while I was using it for my exczema. But I wouldn't be too concerned about it because neither Star or myself have had any long-term side effects.
