• Auggie is a 15 month old golden doodle. In March he started having redness around his eyes, eye whites stayed white- this was just the skin around his eyes. And his upper lip became red, swollen, and he lost his hair. The vet put him on eye drops, steroids, and antibiotics and he had much improvement. But, it came back right when they ended. He is now starting to have eye drainage from left eye. Not sure if this is an allergy or another problem. We have tried Benadryl but doesn’t seem to help.

    Hi Halie, I recommend that you take Auggie into see a veterinarian. With the fact that his symptoms returned after the treatment it is concerning. This could be allergies but there can be other more serious underlying causes as well. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of his symptoms and the treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
