130516 allergic reaction3When Brenda and Andy Terrant started noticing lesions on two of their three dogs, they couldn’t understand how their pets could have been hurt.

The wounds on dogs grew larger. The Terrants initially thought their pets were burnt by an acid or chemical substance, but that was not the case. A biopsy was done once the dogs were taken to the vet and it was determined that dogs experienced an allergic reaction that developed a bacterial infection. It is unclear what caused the allergic reaction, but it was concluded that the injuries were not caused by any chemical substance.

The constant licking and clawing at the wounds made matters worse. One of the dogs lost sight in one eye while the other just suffered a nose injury.

Both pets are home now and are being treated.
