Animals need a good diet and “hair care” routine, just like humans do. When Panda was surrendered to PHS/SPCA, he had scabbing all over his body due to a food allergy, skin infection, and skin mites, as well as matted fur from lack of proper grooming. PHS/SPCA staff gave Panda proper grooming and medical care for his fur and skin. It made all the difference in the world for his health.
Some of the most rewarding shelter stories may not look dramatic to the outside world, but are powerfully emotional journeys for the pets involved. Not all dogs are ready to make new friends right away, and Juliette is a perfect example.
