Updating Away!!!

Wow! What a past couple of days it has been for Bonnie... she's being showered with love and affection from near and far!

First off, she went to the vet on Thursday and I had the vet do a whole work up on her to make sure we aren't missing anything. She is heart worm negative and was given a shot of cortisone to see if it would help (in case it was allergies). It did not so we believe it is demodex mange but we are waiting for the bloodwork and skin scrapings to come back.

There are two types of mange, sarcoptic and demodex. Sarcoptic is contagious to humans (its like scabies) where as demodex is not contagious to healthy human or dogs. So once we rule out that it is not sarcoptic then we can fully treat for demodex.

On a lighter note, the loving people at LOYAL Foster Based Rescue here in Ontario will be taking Bonnie under their wing for as long as Bonnie needs to get better and when time comes they will search out the ideal home for her. You can visit their rescue at

We have secured a local foster home for her, and LOYAL will be helping with the bills as well!

So glad to hear Bonnie has found a rescue! Great to see, too, that so many people have "chipped in". Thank you so much for helping her and Bella, Nicole.
