Mange is an immune-deficient disorder, it is very complicated. Mange is a mite that all dogs carry—but when other health issues start to riddle the body it’s very easy for it to take over on the skin. Little Tomas the dog had a severe case of mange, and was found by the Vancouver Island Dogs Rescue Society.
After a month of treatment and care, he completely transforms into a lovely dog you will see below, this is so incredible and so…whoa, no words.
When he was first brought in, he looked like this.
Just by watching this makes me sad, he must be in great pain.
He looked like very painful because of the mange.
Kimberly Matalas “Feel Better” bath products was used to help fight the mange.
Instead (depending on the severity) dogs are often prescribed Ivermectin, they use Kimberly Matalas “Feel Better” bath products to help topically, they are treated for what else it is that are ailing them, put them on a high quality food and then you are cautious with what exposure the dog receives depending on the severity of his health. It’s about boosting the immune system while fighting the immediate sores and problem areas.
He looks much better.
Demodectic mange, what Little Thomas had, isn’t contagious and this treatment worked for him.
After being treated and cleared by the vet, Thomas is healing with the help of his foster family.
It’s difficult not to be blown away by this one month of progress.
This treatment apparently includes lots of love, without the help of all those kind and warm people, Tomas could never recover so quickly, we really hope Tomas can live happily in his new home!
