Hoarding Case: Jade

Meet Jade ❤

This sweet girl joined us this week after being seized from a hoarding house. Unfortunately her previous owners were not in the right state to care for her. She was unfortunately never groomed do she was severely matted and infested with fleas. She was immediately treated for them but when she arrived to us and we sedated her to shave her we found all of the flea dirt left behind. It looked like someone sprinkled potting soil all over her. Flea dirt is flea feces and it is just dried blood of the host dog. Once shaved we gave her a nice long bath and the water was rust colored ? Her bloodwork showed anemia from the blood loss but now that she is being treated and given the proper nutrition she should be able to bounce back quickly.
