It’s clear from his heart-breaking state that Ronny has had a rough start to life.
Mange is a skin disease caused by a parasitic mite, and this kind mostly affects dogs with compromised immune systems. For Ronny, it has resulted in extensive hair loss, inflamed skin, and scaly lesions all over his body.
His paws are swollen from grass seeds, and his little body is lethargic and weak from fighting the infection without receiving sufficient nutrition.
With barely any body fat, and only around 20% of his patchy hair remaining, we’ve been making sure to keep him warm with cosy jumpers and heat lamps.
The good news is that Ronny’s ailments are very treatable, and with the right care (and people like you in his corner), we are confident he will make a full recovery.
But we need your help. With our shelter overwhelmed with dogs, we are struggling to cover the costs of intensive care required for cases like Ronny.
