#FF0000 Raised $450 towards the $450 target.

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 was treated with an injectable monoclonal antibody now called Cytopoint.  http://www.cytopoint4dogs.com/index.aspx

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!
