This is a genetic condition that can be life-threatening. The dog needs to see a vet for treatment. There are some things that can be done to make a dog prone to this malady more comfortable. The vet may try such a thing as a diet change. A low protein diet really helps some dogs.

Treatment will vary depending on severity of the disorder. You can try a drug called colchicine. It reduces frequency and severity of the fever, as well as help prevent future kidney and liver disease. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for pain are also helpful, which you need to get from your vet. Also: Put your dog on a low protein diet!

It's VERY important to take him to a vet. This is painful, the fever can be fatal or cause renal failure. You CAN'T treat this on your own, your vet needs to diagnose and start a treatment plan. PLEASE don't try to use human meds like aspirin, you'll kill your beloved friend out of kindness. Ask about low protein diets.
