Daisy was found by good samaritans wandering the streets of Compton in mid January with no identification. At that time, they noticed a few skin lesions on her body. The 5 month old pitbull mix puppy was taken to a veterinarian who started Daisy on a course of antibiotics for the lesions. Even with antibiotics, the lesions quickly started to spread over Daisy's body. A referral was made and Daisy was taken to the Animal Dermatology Clinic in Tustin. Biopsies were collected and came back as third-degree burns with secondary infection. The owners have tried to do what they can but have used up all their available money resources on the exams, biopsies and necessary medications.
The local surgeons at Veterinary Surgical Specialists have been consulted regarding the case and suggest daily bandage changes and potential surgical debridement and skin grafting. Both the clinic and the surgery clinic are willing to give discounts to assist with this case through the efforts of Dr Ashley Stich and her colleagues. The degree of contraction caused by healing tissue and risks of serious infection make more aggressive therapy necessary to give her the best prognosis.
Dr Stich writes: Estimate depends on complications with infection and response to therapy. Both our facility and the surgeons are willing to help discount as much as we can. However, the initial estimate would be around $4,000-5,000.
Daisy was the victim of a horrible person who brutally abused her by burning her and then threw her out onto the streets to die. Please find it in your hearts to help this puppy. Her rescuers want her to be able to know what it feels like to be healthy so she can spend the rest of her life in their loving and safe home. Thank you!
