When Dolly was found on the street, she was a mess. She looked much older than her two years of age due to the scabs all over her body and missing patches of fur.

The people who found her immediately brought her to Vet Ranch, a clinic that helps homeless animals in Texas.

 

Dr. Matt Carriker, the founder, immediately took skin samples and it was exactly what he suspected: demodectic mange.

In addition to mange, her feet were extremely swollen, she had tape worms and heartworms.

 

But thankfully the staff knew just what to do.

 

They immediately started her on medication to kill the mites that cause the mange as well as treatment for tapeworm.

Slowly, with love and care, the scales started falling off, making room for the new hair to grow in.

 

After five weeks, most of the scabbing was gone, and she was healthy enough to be spayed.

 

A couple more leaks later and she was like a completely new dog. Gone was the shy and timid girl, she became affectionate and re-energized with her new found health.

Her last treatment was a shot to kill the heartworms.

 

Two months after she came in and Dolly was transformed. She already had a forever home waiting for her, so the only thing left for her to do is to enjoy all the love and attention she'll be getting there.

Tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up in shelters each year, either due to neglect, abuse or abandonment. Consider adopting before you shop, and visit your local shelters before going to a breeder. Every dog and cat deserves a fair chance at a forever home.

 

If you live in England, you can visit the RSPCA, and if you live in the United States, you can visit the ASPCA to get more information about pets available for adoption.
