Ellie Update 1 by TNBrat Ellie Update 1 by TNBrat
Unfortunately poor Ellie had to get worse before she got better. She was so filled with infection & pus her skin cracked open and oosed. At this point she was getting medicated baths every night and meds during the day. She could barely move because when she stepped her feet would break open and she was always in pain. Watch for updates...she looks better

omg what happened? is the dog ok now? poor lil thing. do you have money for vet costs etc? jeuses thats awful. ive never seen a dog look so bad.

i just got my dog back from the kenells after a two week holliday, it looks like they hardly fed him hes lost so much weight, he weighs almost nothing now, all skin and bones, also he cut his feet on the concrete floor of the kenells, and his face on the bars..i dont think il ever send him back there. or recommend that place, someone recommended it to me aswell. it was on a farm i guess animals are just a paycheck to them:/anyway much love to the dog, hope he gets better fast. looks painfull does he have pain killers n meds etc??

i bet if you open a paypal account people will donate money for vet costs if you are struggling to pay them. i hope you have pet insurance, because my dog has cost thousands of pounds before in treatment for just an allergy.

:omg:OMG that's terrible. I would be so mad contact your local SPCA to have them investigated!:fight:
Ellie takes asprin...that's about it..and only a little because its a blood thinner, ya know:cry:

No we don't have insurance & we have a lot of sick animals. But we do have a link here [link] in case someone wants to donate to the vet or us or buy beds for the dogs...just about anything.
If you go to our MySpace page you can see more rescued animals [link]
And sometimes we upload them to Twitter as we rescue them. [link]
As you can see from the first link we are struggling...We don't do a lot of asking...but we do ask for votes. :pray:

yea i was mad, i mean 1 problem i could of understood, but not.. no meds given weight loss and cut face and feet. they have been inspected because i seen the certificates in the kennels.:/

hes a lot better now though i fattened him up a bit, lol he enjoys that, he seems back to his normal self. thanks il check out the links see what i can do.:)

We the weight loss could have just been from him missing you. That's happens in the best of kennel. The cuts don't seem right. Wonder if he got into a dog fight during "playtime"

not sure, hes ok now though back to his normal self the allergy is a bit worse because they didnt give him his meds but hes gettin better and we have some steroids to try see if that will cures it:) fingers crossed they could clear it up for good.

yea my dad said it could be because he missed us and wasn't eating also my brothers gfs parents dog does the same thing, wont eat in the kennels, same kennels though so.. i dont know, they are farmers so i question there care and attachment to any animal, more of a money thing to them than an animal to be cared for and loved id guess. you'd have to be like that if you were breading animals to be killed.

Makes me feel really bad just looking at that poor dog, but at the same time I guess this could work as a reminder to irresponsible animal owners. Keep up the good work my friend!

Please dont take this as an insult or any reflection on your work, your stuff is good but I am not into cute . I am certainly not into hello kitty. I am adding you to dev watch to keep track of the dog. please dont take offense ,but please keep me posted.
TNBrat Featured By Owner May 17, 2009
Not offended at all. I'm very happy that you care about animals. I'm not really doing the other stuff anymore. I've found my calling in life...helping abandoned abused neglected animals. Thank you for adding me.

I almost have no words to be able to respond to this. its adamned shame humans arent susceptible to mange . her prior owners should be locked in a basement after being infectede and deprived of treatment until the condition runs its final course. they may not be responsible for initial infection ,but they could have gotten her treatment.
