Well - good news and bad news. The good news is that Suki's mange is doing much better. The bad news is that it is still not a mild enough case to have her spayed and so her adoptive family will have to wait another 4+ weeks to bring home their sweet new little girl.
Her case was quite extreme when she first arrived here from the shelter, in fact the vet wasn't sure he had seen such a bad case of generalized demodectic mange. Now, after 6 weeks on Ivermectin, she is doing much better. She's no longer a scabby mess and doesn't spend much time scratching, however she still has large patches of mite irritation on her neck, body and all of her legs. Yes, that's pretty much all of her, but her face and tail look pretty mite-free so we're going to call that a victory, especially since one side of her face and the top of her head used to look like one big sore.
I can't say that we're sad to hold onto this sweet dog for another month, but her adoptive family is so ready for her that I feel bad that they will have to wait.
