Blue came in for a second opinion with @drboazman as she was suffering from a significant & painful skin infection !

It was obvious that Blue needed extensive medical care ! #veterinarydermatology

Please NEVER forget that our FIRST PRIORITY as vets is to make sure that your pet NEVER suffers ! #veterinarians

By doing the right things for Blue we were able to transform her quality of life in just 2 short weeks !

Blue’s reminds us all why we have dedicated our lives to helping pets !

#demodex are parasitic mites that cause a skin condition called #demodicosis These microscopic monsters can live in your dog’s hair follicles & oil glands. 

While all have a small population of these little pests (disgusting, I know), those who are sick or have a compromised immune system can’t suppress the mites from spreading, & so an infestation can occur. This sometimes occurs in dogs without an obvious underlying problem.

Maintaining your health is the best way to prevent them from contracting demodicosis. A healthy environment, good diet, & regular #vetcheck will help your be in the best possible health! The good news about demodicosis is that it is NOT contagious to other dogs, cats, or humans! #fearfreevetvisit #vetsnobiety
