Meet Max, a 9 year old dear little dog with a big heart full of love. Max arrived at Holly Hedge in desperate need of urgent medical care. He has a severe skin condition caused by allergies which had escalated over the last few years. His elderly owners were struggling to cope with the daily maintenance and also with the costs of the medicine he needed to control this condition. Trying what they could at home and unable to take him to the vets, his condition has escalated over the last year, becoming one of the most extreme cases we have seen in recent times. Luckily an animal loving health care professional alerted us to the situation and reluctantly but understanding it was in his best interest, his owners signed him over to us so he can get the urgent care he needs.
His skin has tried to heal itself but created rolls of scar tissue and is hard & flaking, and what fur he does have is like a bristle brush. Permanently scratching and biting at himself to help stop the itching has created open sores and left poor Max in considerable pain and discomfort. Max‘s treatment will be extensive, but with the right medication, including daily medicated baths, anti itch medication and time, we are sure he will make a full recovery. We are already seeing such an improvement in such a short time.
Max is a lovely little dog who takes treats very gently and waits patiently. He will be looking for a new home with someone who can help with his medical needs whilst providing all the love, care and company he needs. A quieter home but with lots of nice walks would be perfect. Can you help Max find his dream home?
