We were shocked when we first saw Buddy, his skin was appalling, bare al across his back with weeping sores. He was brought in as a stray but someone must have know what state he was in, constantly itching and scratching. He went to the vet straight away and it was a tense time waiting to see if the diagnosis was mange.
Fortunately, for this lovable young Lab x staffi, the problem was a massive flea infestation. A simple ‘spot-on’ treatment would have prevented all the weeks and months of misery for this good natured dog.
He’s free from fleas now, no more itching and irritation and his hair is growing back really well. A diet rich in oily fish is helping. He’s a great dog and well behaved. We’ll be looking for a new home for him as soon as his skin is a bit better. If you’d like to come and meet him please get in touch.
