swollen lip

Thanks for posting the picture. I am glad you did as my shepherd has the exact same conditions as seen in the photo.

I was told it was either pyoderma or an immune system disease (pemphigus). I was hoping for pyoderma and we have her on antibiotics. They are very strong and making her nauseated (cephexalin). She has to stay on it for 4 weeks! It got better and then it has gotten worse in the second week. Her lip swelling fluctuates.

There is also someone who has a shepherd with the same symptoms. They posted a photo on the web in 2004 at the photo site:

If the link does not work, copy and paste:

I have tried contacting them via email, but have not heard back. Have you heard anything to help diagnose? How long has it been going on?
