Vet Diary - New Coat for Bobby

One of the most common skin diseases diagnosed in the stray dogs brought to our kennels is sarcoptic mange (scabies) This condition is caused by a tiny mite burrowing into the skin, causing intense irritation. These mites can also live on humans so gloves should be worn when handling affected dogs. Another name for scabies is "fox mange", as the mites are commonly found on foxes and also, sadly, the lurchers and terriers that have been used (illegally) to hunt them.

 

Pictured above are "before and after" pictures of Bobby,an 18-month old lurcher who came in in a dreadful state. He received a spot-on treatment straight away, repeated at regular intervals, to kill the mites. He also had several baths to kill the bacteria and yeasts that had invaded his damaged skin. A few weeks of treatment and Stray Aid TLC, and just look at him now!
