My name is Ashton and I feel very lucky to have survived the past winter. As you can see, I’m suffering from a condition that left me with bald spots and lots of sores. I ended up a northern pound that SCARS monitors so they rushed me into their care. I have demodectic mange, a skin condition caused by tiny, naturally occurring mites that proliferate under the right conditions and cause skin infections. For me, those conditions were likely extreme stress and malnutrition.
The good news is that my veterinary team has given me the medication I need to get better! With time, my coat will grow back and I will become a healthy, pretty dog again! Everyone who meets me says I am a sweet girl that didn’t deserve to suffer like this.
Thanks to SCARS, I will never have to be cold or hungry again! To help dogs like me, please donate to SCARS.
