Update on Camilla now Irie - Adopted BRLA Apr 2009
Hello Chantelle and Kerri!
Just wanted to give you an update on our little Irie and how she is doing. She is doing amazingly well. She's still quite timid although each day it seems like she gets a tad more comfortable and we get to see a titch more of her personality coming through. She is most comfortable with our dog Bella and they play together well and Irie loves to try to invade Bella's space and snuggle up with her. As for the rest of us, she seems to have attached most to me and follows me around all day and if I should happen to sit down then I best make room for her too as she needs to be snuggled up next to me. :) She's a gentle little girl who is easy to please and we've only heard barking when she's in the midst of play. What a joy!
I took her to the vet today just to introduce her and get her file started and picked up some special shampoo to wash her with as well as some humidrex to spray on her skin after the bath and halfway through the week. She also has a bit of an infection in her eyes so was able to get some cream to help with that as well. The vet asked that I bring her back about 2 to 3 weeks after her second dose of the mange treatment you gave us for a skin scraping so I'll let you know how that goes. He hadn't heard of the medicine that you had given us for it and while there he looked up the information and was pleased to see that there was something less toxic than what he has used in the past. He did a skin scraping today and found some live mites on her but some dead ones too so thought that was promising.
Does that work as far as the mange- with us taking her to our vet for
the skin scraping to see if she requires any further treatment?
Thanks for all your help and for bringing us together with our little Irie. We cant' imagine our lives without her!
