Optimal treatment for your dog requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow–up can be critical, especially if your dog does not rapidly improve. Administer all prescribed medication as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your dog.

Medication adjustments are critical to management of pemphigus foliaceus and to avoidance of side effects. Thus, it is critical to keep recheck appointments.

The pet owner must observe the animal carefully for response to treatment and for side effects and communicate closely with the veterinarian.

A periodic CBC will be done if immunosuppressive drugs like azathioprine are used.
