    A warm welcome to both of you.

    Do you come across many cases of Shar Pei Fever? I have a friend with a rescue bitch undergoing treatment for this condition. Not nice at all. It doesn't help that many Vets haven't even heard of it.

    I have had several dogs with Shar Pei Fever. It is hard to find a vet that knows about it as it really is a breed specific issue.

    Perhaps you could refer your friend to Dr. Vidt's Website

    There is a vet specific log in area there and Dr Vidt will reply to enquiries (it does take some time though).

    Generally speaking SPF or swollen hock syndrome is thought to be a recessive genetic disorder. Current medical treatment is colchicine aka Colgout in Australia given daily and using and NSAID like Metacam to treat the fever and swelling when an attack hits.

    I hope this helps.

    Hidey Ho Deerhound, SP fever is said to be evident in 1 in 3 pei!!! Sue & crew who WILL be joining over the next few days, has unfortunately had quite some personal experience with this. I (touch wood) have not come across it personally, although a couple of my fosters have suffered since leaving care.

    The more experienced pei people tend to keep a bottle of Metacam in the cupboard for such times, but I will let Sue or perhaps Shar Pei Rescue QLD elaborate on this topic, given their experiences.

    If your friend is anywhere near Moorabbin in Victoria, I recently me a vet at the emergancy centre (whole other story lol) who lived and worked in the UK for some time. She seemed to have a good handle on it. Also there is a vet I could recommend in Frankston with a wealth of Pei experience.

    A big problem with vets and pei is that a vet could be the BEST vet in the world but without lots of pei experience, they just don't have the knowledge.

    Hope this helps and thanks for the welcome

    ROFL SPR QLD we must have been replying at the same time!!!!

    Hi, Cynthia here, but on this forum I am Florence - LOL. Thanks for the invite. I saw one of the Shar Pei (Male) at Renbury today. Oh, his eyes. I would say they have streamed all his life, poor boy. I didn't see the female; maybe she was in another shed.
