Vet Diary - Poor Little Mites

Yet again, we have been shocked and saddened, this time by 2 new arrivals to our Animal Welfare Centre. 2 identical black lurcher pups, no more than 3-4 months old, were brought in on Friday 12th June. These poor babies were desperately underweight and covered in tiny scabs which were causing intense itching. A quick skin scrape revealed scabies mites, a nasty parasite which spreads easily to other dogs but also to humans.

These pups will need to be kept in isolation in our Animal Welfare Centre, fed a special diet to correct the malnutrition and allow the skin to heal, and receive regular mange treatments until the mites have gone. If you would like to contribute to the treatment of these neglected puppies, and help them make a speedy recovery, please visit the "Support Us" page of our website, www.strayaid.org.uk, for ways you can help.
