My first rescue

Vistited Wiang Kum Kam yesterday and returned today to see a dog I saw laying at the side of the road covered in blood. Found BuunLai and a barber (Kh Chom) who had been feeding him for the past year or so. Took BuunLai to vet and tested positive for Demodec mange. Very little hair on body, very smelly and lots of open wounds and running blood. Returned to shelter.

1cc Ivomec after meal every day and 500 mg cefolexin 2xday.Anti histamine Hydroxyzine HCI
10 mg 2xday. Cover open wounds with NEGASAN to stop flies laying eggs. Shower 1xweek
