Please, after you finish reading this post, help us spread Angie’s plea by sharing it on your Social Networks… the case, as you will see, it’s critical…
We will never know what Angie went through until she found us….
The moment I set my eyes on her I had to give a second look to appreciate the extent and gravity of her condition. Her skin is hard, covered in sores and scabs fall from every single inch of her body. There is no fur, and only a few scattered hairs hang on from the leathery skin.
There are few things that can torment a dog as much as a full infestation of sarcoptic mange. The dammed parasites dig into and through the skin, causing intense itching and the formation of crusts that usually become infected. I have seen dogs go totally crazy trying to chew the parts of their body infected by the mites. The condition aggravates when the animal has been starved, as it is obviously Angie’s case.
And just when you thought things couldn’t get any worst for Angie they did… a test this morning has confirmed she has parvo, a killer disease that unless treated inmediately could take her life in a matter of days..
We need to look at the matter with a broad vision, put her on treatment to alleviate the mite infestation as well as boost her very depressed inmune system so that she can fight the parvovirus. As you can see in the pictures she is currently on IV and has been isolated from the other dogs in the clinic to stop the spreading of the virus.
Angie is the dog for whom Let’s Adopt! was created. She is the dog with the contagious skin condition and the killer disease that can be fought only through dedication and the best veterinary care. Angie is the dog for whom Let’s Adopt! was created, because for animals like her we are the only chance of survival…
I give you my word we will do everything possible to turn her life around … Please, if you can, give us a hand and contribute to Angie’s treatment Chipin, she will make you proud..
P.S. If you cannot help, please, help us spread Angie’s plea by sharing it on your Social Networks.. And of course, you are more than welcome to leave us a note in our Facebook Page, Let’s Adopt! Global
UPDATE 21st May
Angie is feeling much better. Whilst still fighting against Parvo her overall condition is much better. She continues receiving support treatment but we expect to be able to announce that she has fully beaten parvo very soon… from then on it will be a question of continuing boosting her immune system as well as dealing with the massive infestation of sarcoptic mange that covers her body.
Here are some pictures of Angie as of today, she really looks more comfortable don’t you think? Please visit Angie Rescue Album on Facebook to follow up her evolution during her treatment… Angie’s Album
