When Rhodie first arrived at Humane Society of Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) she was suffering from severe allergies. They were so bad she was in a lot of pain.
“Rhodie was missing fur around her eyes, ears, and paws, and her poor skin was bright red and very sensitive to touch,” HSPPR wrote on Facebook
Rhodie’s rescuers knew she needed immediate help so their veterinary team got down to work. They gave her special bi-weekly baths, applied ointment to her skin daily and put her on medication.
They also prescribed her “a Hill’s Science Diet z/d dog food, which is formulated to help avoid adverse food reactions and promote healthy skin” the group wrote.
Within just a few days of being on this new medical plan, her rescuers immediately saw a significant improvement in her health. “The redness subsided, she was visibly much happier, and after each exam, she became more comfortable with handling,” they described.
Rhodie stayed with them for almost a month and made an incredible transformation. HSPPR proudly showed off how good she looked sharing a photo and writing, “Look at Rhodie’s glow-up!”
And in even better news, Rhodie has been adopted. “[S]he trotted out of the shelter with a smiling snout, allergy medicine, and the cutest human by her side!”
It’s so heartwarming to see Rhodie being comfortable in her own skin again. Thanks to her dedicated rescuers she got not only her health back but a brand new life!
