    Just another update for the people that have helped.  Loki has been diagnosed with Pemphigus Foliaceous – not what we were hoping for and no-one really expected this as only her feet are effected.
    She starts some heavy duty treatment asap and hopefully it will help her.  I also have the help of someone who uses homeopathic remedies so this will hopefully help treat any symptoms that may arise.
    Fingers crossed for my beautiful girl x

    It is a problem with the immune system where basically it starts rejecting bits of her skin.  Her nails have been affected because the skin in the nail bed is being rejected along with her pads.  Sores can break out on the dogs skin aswell – although Loki is showing no signs of this.
    It can never be cured although you can hope to keep it in remission.
    A friend of mine managed with care to get her Akita to 9 yrs old and she had the same condition so i’m hoping we will have many years left yet as my girl is only 3 1/2 yrs old.

    Good luck with her treatment.  Apparently it’s the no 1 autoimmune disease in dogs… Wonder if anyone else on here knows anyone who’s had it?
