Dezi had a recheck at the vet and he is doing much better! He is cleared to have surgery to be neutered next week. When we first got Dezi he had a terrible skin infection from an out of control flea allergy. He had been terribly neglected. His skin was crawling with fleas and was so infected it looked terrible. Most of his hair had fallen out. His nails were incredibly long!
After twice weekly medicated baths and antibiotics Dezi started to look and feel much better.
Poor Dezi is a small terrier mix who came to us terribly neglected! A neighbor asked Dezi’s owners what was wrong with him, and was told they did not care what happened to him, and gladly surrendered him. He had barely any hair left, was crawling with parasites, had secondary infections from being allergic to fleas, and infections in both ears. He was still in good spirits though, wagging his tail at everyone.
He is on antibiotics for a couple more weeks before he is expected to be well enough to be neutered, and then we can start looking for his forever home. We all would like to say thank you to anyone who helped us care for him. Whether it was donations, sharing his pictures, or just telling a friend about Kreacher Konnections and the work we are doing, it is all appreciated!
Dezi was released to us by his owners who openly admitted they did not love him, so they didn’t take care of him. He was VERY neglected! Initially, we were worried that he would require long, expensive treatment for mange. Fortunately, it was not mange and was not contagious. He will require many medicated baths, sessions of nail clippings,and lots of TLC before he can find his forever home. Even though he was neglected so badly, he is a sweet, loving, and grateful boy and DEFINITELY worth saving!
While this is good news, Molly was also taken to the vet to have her seizures assessed. We got the devastating news that a cyst on Molly’s leg is cancerous. She must have surgery Tuesday February 4 to remove the growth and send a sample to be tested. Molly is such a happy and loving dog, I know she will be a trooper throughout this process.
We are a non-profit organization and we depend on donations from generous animals lovers.
