Meet Dane, a four year old owner surrender to Animal Control. It doesn’t appear that Dane was well cared for much of his life. We gather that he spent most of his life in the laundry room and ignored. BUT, he’s a sweetie and loving some attention.

His eyes are infected and probably has dry eye. His ears are crunchy and most likely chronically infected. His coat is in terrible shape with both bacterial and yeast infections. And his nails are WAY overgrown! He’s already begun antibiotics for the skin and coat. Had his ears and eyes cleaned and his nails trimmed for comfort.

For now, he has to be in isolation for 2 weeks because of his exposure to shelter virus and bacteria. During that time, we will work on the eyes ,ears and coat. When his skin has improved enough, we will proceed with neuter, dental and trim the nails back. Dane is heartworm negative.

His intake report says he gets along with dogs and children. Cats unknown.

Dane will remain on medical hold until after he is neutered.

Update 11/12/12: Dane is battling a severe yeast skin infection. Most of the dogs who come in with skin problems have both a bacterial infection and an underlaying yeast skin infection. We treat both at the same time, but sometimes the yeast is so bad that giving the antibiotics to clear the bacterial part of the infection makes the yeast infection worse. He also was having a difficult time tolerating the yeast medicine. We’ve got it worked out now and he is no longer on antibiotics and only being treated for yeast. Hopefully he can be neutered sometime this week.
