Kind People Saves A Seriously Infection-Ridden Dog And She Makes An Incredible Transformation

Lauren Buckley has fostered animals after she rescued her dog, Brooks. He was on the euthanasia list at an overcrowded Alabama shelter and Buckley simply couldn’t imagine her life without the pup after she found out about him. This leads her to think of how many dogs who are facing a grim future could find their forever parents if only given the chance. And Buckley started doing this work for four years and has been loving every second of it!

Recently, however, Buckley took in such a neglected doggo, she wasn’t even sure if her help could save her. “She Stunk, She Couldn’t See, And She Bled All Over The Couch”. She continued: “We saw [pictures of] Lainey and her brother posted on Facebook on Christmas Eve by the Good Samaritan that found them. He couldn’t keep them and we knew we had to do something,” Buckley told Bored Panda.

Lainey was experiencing demodectic mange and secondary skin infections at that time. Over the following months, the poor pup would undergo aggressive treatment. However, this brave little girl pulled through.

On Christmas Eve, Buckley found this infection-ridden pup

Soon after, she was taken in by Lauren, who then decided to devote herself to the recovery of this poor little girl

Her condition was terrible and as her rescuers described it, she stunk, couldn’t see, and bled all over the couch

Demodectic mange, or demodex, is caused by a cigar-shaped mite, Demodex canis. They are a normal part of the skin flora, always present, and usually harmless. Mom dogs pass them on to their pups in the first few days after giving birth, but it is not contagious to humans. The mites take up residence deep in hair follicles and stay there, causing no harm. A normal immune system keeps their numbers in check.

However, a newborn dog that has a weakened immune system, these mites can grow out of control.

If the disease spreads to many areas of the body, the condition is called generalized demodectic mange. It’s really severe and can be life-threatening if not treated properly.

After taken the inspection by the vet, Lainey was diagnosed with demodectic mange and secondary infection.

If the little pup wasn’t received urgent treatment, she would have met a sad ending.

Buckley did everything she could to create the absolute best conditions for the pup to recover. “We had her for four months,” she said. “She took daily antibiotics and ivermectin for the full four months. In addition, we gave her coconut oil in her food, applied it to her skin, and gave her twice-weekly medicated baths. We also did our best to keep her stress level low since demodex thrives on stress.”

Now the brave little pup was given a name – Lainey, and Lainey knew she’s not alone anymore in this fight

And life always gives courageous girls a miracle

Lainey received the necessary attention, care, and love

Which helped her get back to her true looks and start again as the beautiful dog she actually is

When Lainey’s condition got better, a good friend of Buckley who saved her first dog from the euthanasia shelter adopted her. “It feels [like a] full circle,” Buckley said. “She and her husband are incredible, kindhearted people who were smitten with Lainey from the get-go. We could not have asked for a better family for her.”

Lainey’s foster mom also wanted to use the opportunity and thank Brown Dog Coalition out of Hopkinton, MA. “They are the rescue who paid for all her vetting and answered my call when we took Lainey in on Christmas Eve. They save countless dogs who need major medical care and this wouldn’t have been possible without them.”

Here is what people respond to her full recovery
