I have had dogs with acquired autoimmune disorders. My one dog "Hope had Myasthenia gravis (MG) an autoimmune disorder of the neuromuscular junction and Megaesophagus, which is not an autoimmune form in which was also treated with the same Med's as humans would receive. (Though with Cellcept and Mestinon med's, it was much cheaper to get the med's out of Canada). With people I don't think you can do this legally though. Only animals I believe.
Also "Poquito" in profile picture, had the glaucoma. He went blind about 5 years before he went to heaven at 18 yrs. He done just fine blind though. At first I put a different potpourri smell in each of the rooms so he wouldn't get confused. Unless you looked at him face to face you would not have known he was blind at all they way he ran around the house. I think I took his blindness worse than he did. LOL
Animals get ALOT of the same things we do and are a lot of times treated with the same med's. Their bodies just react different to them as ours sometimes.
The reason I hit other is, (knock on wood) my two dogs now are clear from autoimmune disorders at this time. Best of wishes with your little one. HUGS
