    This little lady was found this morning in my hometown. The person that found her, posted her up in one of the lost and found pets pages I frequent. She's obviously has some sort of skin issue going on. I will be taking her down to the local non-profit animal clinic on Saturday morning to get looked at. I pick her up tonight after work and am bringing her home and will start any treatment I can there and get her fed up and hydrated. Hopefully, it's nothing TOO TOO serious and we can get her healthy and find her a forever home!!! The pic below is how she was found this morning! I've started a YouCare fund to help cover her vet expenses.

    Thank you for helping her! From the pic, that looks like Demodex (of course, only a vet can d/x this).

    I would definitely give her canned and kibble. She needs really good nutrition.

    Thank you for helping her.

    Aw! :(
    I second the demodex and quality nutrition. Awwww, thanks for rescuing her! Honestly, if it is demodex it doesn't get that bad overnight or from being lost couple days....

    Update:
    Skin scrape confirmed Demodex
    Has worms

    So far treatments are as follows:
    She was given Bravecto (extremely effective on demodex)

    Put on Cephelexen capsules

    Prescribed medicated shampoo.

    Dewormed

    More steps I am taking:
    I've rubbed her down with Nu Stock
    Also washed her with Happy Jack

    The last couple days have been a little overwhelming for her. So we are gonna give it a week or so then test for heartworm.

    If no microchips, post MANY fliers, post on Craigslist and the local Pound. Don't consider your hers until a week has passed. Hats off to you to treating her.

    I would give probiotics with the antibiotics. Or mix canned tripe in her food.

    She's on Diamond Naturals. Which, is loaded with 80,000,000 CFU of live and active probiotic cultures. I also mix canned in with her food, like I do Diesel's. But she gets all she wants, unlike Diesel.

    I'm sorry but this is where I agree to disagree. Correct it is wrong if the dog is chipped and had an owner. However all these issues just don't happen overnight. If the dog is chippe fthe owners obviously didn't care.

    She's in good hands finally with Adam.

    As public as I've made this (she also has a Facebook page so people can track her progress) I doubt any owner would step up.

    I don't want to give anyone the wrong impression. I'm not about "stealing" a dog. I almost had my Blue stolen. My point. If this dog was in good shape healthy and what not. Then I agree with going out of the way with tryin to find the owner 100%

    Agreed - but the dog could have run away month ago, the owners couldn't find him, and his condition deteriorated on the streets. We just don't, and can't, know.
