This little guy arrived in misery. He could not stop chewing and biting to the point that he was gnawing at his skin and causing open, raw, bleeding sores. He was diagnosed with Sarcoptic Mange. This mange causes excessive itching and severe, self-inflicted trauma. Dogs will not stop eating at their skin! This condition is almost always associated with secondary staph infection – which adds to the severity of the disease.
Little Henry was quickly started on systemic (oral) and topical treatments, which included anti-itch medications, antibiotics, daily medicated baths and oral supplements.
He was also full of intestinal parasites which further suppressed his immune system. A proper deworming schedule was started… and three months later, he was a happy, bouncy, healthy little guy with amazing skin and a beautiful coat!
