The Lad, an Irishman who lives in a large home in Dublin, Ireland, says his dog has developed a form of canine arthritis called keratitis.
Keratitis is a condition in which the skin on the back of the dog’s neck, ears and nose becomes infected and inflames.
It is a common skin disease and occurs in dogs of all breeds.
When Keratosis is left untreated, the skin can lead to a painful condition called joint hypermobility disorder (JHD).
The disease, which can affect the joints in the arms, legs and neck, can lead the dog to become unsteady and unable to sit or stand for extended periods of time.
“I’ve had it since I was about six years old,” says The Lad.
“It’s not something that I can live without.”
Keratitis has only been diagnosed in one dog and it’s a very serious condition.
It’s really hard to see how you can keep a dog for the rest of your life.
But it was too late for me,” he says. “
I had surgery and a two-week course of antibiotics.”
We just started to lose hope and when I started seeing the symptoms, I knew it was time for me to get it checked out.””
We lost the puppy in January and he hasn’t had any of the injections since.”

“So, The Lad decided to seek veterinary advice and took Big Jim to a vet.”
The doctor came back with a letter saying that they were not sure what to do.
They were right. “
They told me I was lucky and that if I got a second dog, I would have a second chance at a diagnosis.”
They were right.
It was the perfect diagnosis.
I was told that my skin would just go back to normal in a few months,” he said.”
There was nothing that could be done.

The Lad is currently taking medication to keep his dog in the clinic for the next 12 weeks.
“My son has been very supportive,” he explains.
“He wants me to go back and get my dog, but I know it’s too late to do that.”
It’s been really frustrating to have to deal with the pain, but there are times when I feel like I’m letting the dog down.
