My boy, he's brindle and almost 7 years old, he has the dry crusty nose and the almost ulcerated looking skin on the front of the nose, his Dr thinks it's Lupus. We're going to start doing extra fish oil, aswell as nupro, i'm thinking about adding in vit E also, and maybe C. his Dr said we could do panalog (tri antibitotic ointment w/ Triamcinolone a steroid) for the lesions on the nose, i'm going to try the supplements first of course before i go drug route. Also he had a history before of the severe pododermatitis and hyperkeratinization of his foot pads, even tho this has since resolved. I just wondered if anyone had any experience with Lupus in their boxer baby and what kind of things worked for them. He is at a good body weight and eats honest kitchen.
