Just one-year-old, and MaryJane suffers from a severe case of demodex. When surrendered by her former owners, the friendly Labrador retriever wore a white t-shirt – hopefully one of the family members had dressed her to protect her delicate and painful skin infection. Why she wasn’t treated by a veterinarian remains a tragic mystery, but most likely led to the young dog having been surrendered to the Miami-Dade Animal Services on Wednesday.
According to MaryJane’s veterinary report upon intake at the shelter, the dog suffers from alopecia on her face and body with dry skin over her entire trunk area. At this time, she has been started on antibiotics, and it is recommended a rescue or an adopter followup at a licensed veterinarian. A Facebook page for this dog can be found here. Advocates have been pledging funds to help an approved rescue organization with the anticipated costs of medical treatments
