Mange / Parasite Treatment & Prevention Clinics
We aim to conduct a series of mobile clinics that will assess, monitor and treat the most serious cases of mange and other parasitical diseases.
The most rampant skin disease in stray cats and dogs in Thailand is mange. Mange is caused by tiny mites that live in the skin and hair follicles and their presence is not
usually harmful, if they do not proliferate.
Unfortunately, due to the poor living conditions and the low functioning immune systems of stray animals, mange is particularly common and the results can be horrific. Continuous scratching of itchy areas leads to hair loss, bald spots then penetration of the skin, which can result in serious infection and further health complications. Dogs and cats are left constantly itching with painful weeping and bleeding wounds. They eventually scratch their fur off.
We aim to conduct a series of mobile clinics that will assess, monitor and treat the most series cases of mange and other parasitical diseases. We hope to maintain control of these diseases with the long term objective being prevention rather than cure.
When Kelly found Pumpkin on the streets of Nuea Klong, Krabi he was suffering with serious mange. Kelly took matters in to her own hands and paid for Pumpkin’s treatment out of her own pocket. Pumpkin required weekly injections and daily baths to gain control of his disease, but with hard work and dedication Pumpkin’s health has dramatically improved and we are working towards finding him his much deserved forever home.
Unfortunately, Pumpkin’s case is not uncommon and we want to help more animals like him! Our mange / parasite treatment and prevention clinics will enable us to effectively monitor and treat the most serious cases of mange and various other terrible fungal skin conditions, whilst also providing a platform to explore the most effective ways of preventing continuous outbreaks of the disease.
