HOW A DOG TRANSFORMED WITH ONE SIMPLE TREATMENT
It’s hard to believe a dog can get into this state, but sadly it’s a common sight in Asian and third world countries. The crazy part is it is totally preventable if you support the dogs immune system with good food, and it’s curable and can cost less than AU$25.
How? With one tablet of Bravecto or Nextguard the scabies and mange mite is killed and the dogs begin to recover in a matter of weeks. By 3 months they are usually fully furry!
Bima was found on the a busy road in central Bali. He was watching the world go by when someone stopped to help him. They contacted us immediately asking for assistance and to rescue him. At the time we were at capacity with so many dogs in our care that we offered to support the person with advice and guidance. The first thing to find out is if he actually had a home.
What a lot of people don’t understand is that many dogs that you see on the streets of Bali do have a home. The human dog relationship is a bit different to other areas of the world, but it doesn’t always mean they are homeless.
After a few days Bima guided his helper to his home. There they met a low income family with a small baby and several other dogs. Despite the condition of the dogs the family still cared for them. They were in no financial position to fund medical care. Heck, they couldn’t even afford medical care for themselves.
Bima’s initial treatment was easy. As he was untouchable there was no way the vet could get close but with the new super medicine Bravecto, one single dose transformed this boy with in a few months.
At just AU$25 we can literally put hairs on chests of hairless hounds!
As you can see in these photos Bima was suffering both scabies, an horrendously itchy and uncomfortable mite that is contagious to other animals and humans, coupled with mange due to his deteriorated immune system.
Bima today is BEAMING BEAUTIFUL and his hair continues to grow. We also successfully treated their two other dogs with the same illness. All recovered well, were vaccinated and sterilised.
