Milo was missing many patches of hair which was later diagnosed as mange. Mange is the common name for a disease that can be caused by two different types of mite parasite- Demodex or Sarcoptes. Both of these mites live in the skin and cause hair loss and itching. Mange is most common in younger animals and mild cases can resolve on their own. However, in severe cases like Milo's - daily baths with medicated shampoo and other medications may be recommended by a veterinarian.
After some good ole fashion TLC Milo is in tip-top shape thanks to PAWS and their amazing fosters!
Animals like Milo are suffering from diseases caused by parasites all over the world.
Help us to provide prevention in the healthy and treat the sick!

Bear received his 2nd treatment for heartworms yesterday and is finishing up with his third and final treatment today! According to Bear's owner, Bear did really well following his first treatment!
Bear was rescued by his family after his original owner had passed away. Read his full story here.
Although Bear is receiving his final treatment today, he still has some recovery time before he can begin his normal everyday life. Did you know that heartworm treatment is nearly a 1 year process? Thankfully, preventative medications are available and are more cost effective than treatment! Talk to your veterinarian about what heartworm prevention options are recommended for your area!
Bears owner says she is "Praying for a successful end to his heartworms and a long happy life for our sweet rescue Bear. He definitely has come a long way. He us a fighter!!! Thankful to your organization and all you do."
We are so thankful to have been a part of getting Bear back on his feet and ready to enjoy the rest of his life with his family.
