Eight puppies and their Mom recently arrived from Waskaganish with a bad case of demodex (mange). It is caused by mites that bury into the skin and results in crusty sores all over their body. These pups came to Animatch with eyelids fused together and very little fur. No broken legs, no large tumour, no physical abnormality that requires emergency surgery. Nevertheless, cases such as these do demand more funds – medication, medicated shampoos for weekly baths, not to mention the extra time that they must be at the Centre. In order to help litters of puppies such as these, we rely on your support. Please consider making a donation – these pups will be forever grateful.
