Health Results/Scores


Tisha is a real character, full of life and into everything. She recently (27th March '03) tried her paw at herding... and had a ball - those sheepies were great fun!!!! We have since taken her to a herding clinic (19th April) and she enjoyed herself once again, exhibiting a definite interest in the sheep, we hope to continue with Tisha's herding interest in the future.

Tisha will make the occasional foray into the show ring, but for now is concentrating on having fun and doing all the things that Belgians (especially puppies) do.

May 2003 - Tisha and I went went to another Herding training day, we (Tisha and I) have started to learn our commands etc.... still good fun!!

Nov 2003 -Tisha only attended a couple of shows, most notably the Victorian Belgian Specialty Show on the 1st Nov 2003, where she was 2nd Puppy Bitch Class out of four other girls (she was beaten by her friend Ella), where she Graded Excellent by Breed Specialist Dr G Schaffner (France) - it was actually Dr (Vet) Scaffner who allerted me to the fact that Tisha's eye problem was more serious than we first thought.

Dec 2004 - No more pain little girl, forever in my Heart..........

Tisha had Chronic Conjunctivitis, (allergic or Immune mediated conjunctivitis), which began in the Spring of 2003, it was initially thought to have been brought on by a trigger eg, environmental - pollen, dust, chemical, vaccine (lowered immune system)
She was seen by our own vet and a veterinary ophthamologist. Treatments included, Maxidex drops, Prednisolone tablets, Prednefrin drops, Imuran tablets, Optimmune® ointment - these last 2 being the most effective but not controlling it completely. She was taking the highest dose possible for her of the Imuran - which is an immune suppressant, the possible side effects from this drug meant it was too risky to increase the dose further.
She had to have regular blood tests because of the risks to her organs/kidneys and was at a greater risk from viral infection & disease because of the effects of the drug on her immune system. We also tried a couple of herbal eye treatments.
Taking many things into consideration, in particular Tisha's age and the fact that the treatment whilst an improvement, was not as effective as we would have liked and not worth the risk of the side effects of taking the immune suppressant for the rest of her life, I made one of the hardest and saddest decisions I've ever had to make.
My little girl was given sleep whilst in my arms.....

Optimmune® ointment - opthalmic cyclosporine

What is Allergic Conjunctivitis?

Allergic conjunctivitis may be due to pollen, house dust mites, molds, mildew and food allergy as well as odors from new carpets and recently finished floors. There is no way to diagnose an allergy directly. For this reason, allergic conjunctivitis is a diagnosis of exclusion, that is we exclude all other causes and what is left is allergy. The treatment for allergic conjunctivitis is either steroids or nonsteroid antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If a cause can be determined, the elimination of the cause will often result in the resolution of the allergy.
