#FF0000 Raised $325 towards the $450 target.

NOT YET READY FOR ADOPTION.

Ruby was sitting in the animal shelter and her owner declined to re-claim her.  She was miserable with pustules all over her body and she scratched herself often.  A skin biopsy was taken to hopefully aid in diagnosing what was wrong.

The results were inconclusive so a tentative diagnosis was that she was having a severe allergic reaction to an unknown cause.

Treatment has started.  There is improvement after 2 weeks!

Hopefully you can see the difference from the before and after pictures.

Ruby is being treated with an injectable monoclonal antibody that is currently only conditionally licensed.  Once her skin is clear of the “hives”, we will have to determine if she will still need injections.

Please consider donating towards Ruby’s treatment.  She is a very sweet mature girl and is definitely feeling better!
