Often times we get a dog that is in dire need of extra love and care. This was Lulu’s case. Sweet, loving Lulu arrived in July 2015 with severe skin problems and an eye on the verge of rupturing (see before photos). Our mission was to get her immediate medical assistance and begin the healing process. Sadly, it was necessary to remove her eye as it was very painful for Lulu and beyond saving. Next, her skin problems were addressed. No simple task as she often required medicated baths, special foods and medications. She has both environmental and food allergies which were, at first, tricky to diagnose. But fast forward to April 2016 and you will find a much happier and healthier little girl thanks to the immense effort given by her foster mama (see today’s photos). And now Lulu is ready for a special home who will continue to give her the special care she deserves.
