Lightbulb Lucys story..so far.

Lucy is the sweetest puppy you will ever meet, even after the neglect she endured as a baby she was and is always willing to give lots and lots of kisses and love! She's definitely a lover! I got my girl Lucy from a local rescue, when they found her she was two months old underweight had a double ear infection, three different kinds of intestinal parasites and to top it all off full blown demodectic mange. I first signed on to foster her, but as soon as they put that little girl in my arms I fell in love instantly...she was mine. Lucy quickly recovered from the ear infection and parasites and started to put on weight like a champ, but treating her mange was more difficult to say the least. She had to have five "dips" and antibiotics to treat secondary infections before she had her first clear skin scrape. Once she was clear of mange and infection for about three weeks she was itchy again, Lucy had demotic mange again! This time around it was really an up hill battle she was diagnosed with a poor immune system causing her to contract the mange again, we started her on immune supplements and continued with the dips, she had six dips and multiple positive skin scrapes before we started her on oral ivermectin(the wonder medicine!) and finally is looking the way she should! beautiful golden brown and white, not bald and grey, I have never seen her look this good! Her skin continues to improve daily and she hasn't been the least bit itchy in awhile. I'm so happy for her! finally she can be a "normal" seven month old puppy without any obvious medical problems!
