This one was about to be taken in because they thought it had untreatable mange. I saw her and could see it wasn't mange, but the absolute worst flea infestation I have ever seen. EVER. I mean literally thousands, yes THOUSANDS, of them covering her skin. When she wasn't scratching and whining, you could tell she was a smart and sweet dog and I just couldn't let them put her down over something that could be cured fairly easily.
They said she had quit eating, and it shows. Said she did nothing but scratch and whine all the time. I can understand why.
After 5 baths and a $70 Frontline treatment and some meds from the vet, she doesn't have a single flea anywhere. She isn't scratching and she just ate 2 porkchops and a big bowl of macoroni and mashed potatoes. She's not whining anymore and is laying about as peaceful as a dog can be, asleep in her new bed. She's also smart as a whip. Follows about any command you can think of now that she's not obsessed with itching.
The bad part, she's ugly. I mean like, people are afraid to pet for fear of it being contagious, ugly. The vet said that getting rid of the fleas and fattening her back up on table scraps and Ol'Roy high protien that she will probablly grow most of it back in a year other than a few places where she left scars from scratching.
Her name is Eavey, just like Peavey without the "P". They said it was short for Evelyn.
The pistures look like she has grey hair. That's not hair, it's bare skin.
