Finn continues to battle skin and eye issues

The good news is that Finn’s hair has grown back. The bad news seems to continue. Finn couldn’t shake some skin issues, which the dermatologist determined was precipitated by Adrenal dysfunction disease. Searching for the adrenal issue cause, we discovered a mass in his abdomen, which needs to be biopsied. Finn’s eyes were tearing excessively, and he was constantly rubbing them. He has inward facing eyelids (entropion) and a superficial ulcer. These problems must be surgically repaired or he will be an unhappy pup, which is not his nature at all.
