The before and after of severe skin condition treatment on stray dogs

in #dogslast month

This little lady has been us for 40 days which is a much longer period of time than we would normally keep a dog in our kennels. We normally don't take on these cases because it is for the most part, well beyond our budgetary capabilities but she almost certainly would have died without our help.


She was severely underweight, had horrible mange and open wounds on all over her body and was completely infested with fleas, ticks, and mange. To make matters worse she wasn't terribly receptive to being approached by humans, who she has built up a lifetime of distrust towards.


Although she was unresponsive to the love we tried to shower her with, this doesn't change the fact that we are still going to help as much as we can. It was necessary to muzzle her at times because she would try to bite anyone who would approach her, even if we attempted to buy her trust with food.


I don't think the pics really do her progress justice but she has improved immensely as far as her coat, her weight, and her overall temperament is concerned. She still is a bit apprehensive to allow people to touch her so we still keep her muzzled anytime we need to move her.


Henrik has been able on multiple occasions to get her into a medicated bath and this has helped with the recovery of her previous terrible skin condition that would have almost certainly taken her life. She is ready to be reintroduced to the area that we picked her up in and now has a number of injections that will help to prevent her skin infection from returning, at least for a time.

As sad as it sounds, the people of the community are very unlikely to help, feed, let alone touch a dog that is in the state that she was when she arrived at our facilities - hopefully with her new makeover the people living in the community will be a bit more responsive to her.

As always, we wish we could do more or even find a forever home for her, but this simply isn't possible at the moment. We have to stay focused on the long-term goals of improving the overall health of the community's stray animal population.

เคสสุนัขเพศเมียตัวน้อยนี้เป็นเคสที่ยากมาก! น้องหมาตื่นตระหนกและอาการไม่ง่ายต่อการรักษา 😔

น้องหมาอยู่ในคลินิกมานานกว่า 40 วันแล้ว! และถึงเวลาแล้วที่จะได้รับการปล่อยตัว น้องได้รับการรักษาให้หายจากความเจ็บป่วยที่น่ารังเกียจทุกประเภท ฆ่าเชื้อ ฉีดวัคซีน และทำให้อ้วนขึ้น ค่าใช้จ่ายในการรักษาน้องนั้นขอมากกว่า 8,000 บาท! 😯

there is so much of this in Thailand and while i am sure it exists in other countries, i have never seen it as bad as it is there. You are doing great work.

it's an uphill battle for sure. By the way we received your donation and thank you so much. It is so desperately needed right now.

no problem. When i found out how little it is to "sponsor" a dog I thought, why not? I hope others will do the same.

i have never seen this affliction on any dog in the USA. I would be willing to bet that it exists, maybe on a farm or something but good grief that is horrible. You are a true savior!
