Bald Rescue Dog with Kennel Cough & Scar Tissue Around Chip Implant
by Christine G.
(Melbourne, FL, USA)
Help! My son found a beagle mix discarded on a dirt road surrounded by 3 sides of alligator-infested waters. He was under 6 mo old at the time. He was malnourished, flea infested and had mange. We fed grain free food, bathed 3x a week and had his coat almost all there.
Then he jumped the fence while at a dog sitters, got thrown in doggie jail and they have destroyed his immune system! I bailed him out within an hour of being posted (he was there about 16 hrs).
These people knew he still had mange and gave him bronchi shield III, DAPP, frontline and strongid. And microchipped him despite my refusal. He is worse than ever now and all of my dogs developed kennel cough!
I have been giving astragalus, echinachea, bentonite clay.
First it started out with what looked like burns, but there was nothing for him to get burned on. Now he looks like a chemo patient. He has lost about 90% of his hair.
Where they gave him the chip, it is now a very hard "scar tissue" (feels like a vein filled with plastic).
He is the sweetest thing you ever saw and so good for a pup (he's about 8-9 mo now living in our garage so one of my other dogs doesn't hurt him). No one wants to adopt him looking like this. Please help me make him better.
The director at shelter that did this to him claimed herd immunity and for the good of the majority as reasoning for giving 4 meds that were all contraindicated by each other and his health.
He was so scared in there, there are no rescues that can take him, our finances are really tight right now but he needs help...inexpensive help so I can find him a home worthy of such a fine soul.
