Amelia the Afghan Recovering Beautifully



The Afghan who was surrendered to us with an advanced case of sarcoptic mange has been making wonderful progress in AHS' care as her photos here can attest. Her owner was so unhappy with the sick dog he'd adopted from a foreign breeder that he was willing to euthanize her at 10 months old. (Read complete story here.)

He was convinced to surrender her to us instead, and we have been working on Amelia's mange since that time with great results. In her photo, upper right, after two weeks of treatment, you can still see some of the raw redness remaining, yet vastly improved from when she first arrived.

In the side view below, you see a much cleaner fluffier dog with a much fuller haircoat and very little of the mange remaining.

And in her final photo, you observe very little of the rawness left. After several baths, the mites have been killed off and the skin is continuing to heal. Her attitude alone speaks volumes of how much better Amelia is feeling.

Treating sarcoptic mange is extremely difficult in most environments due to the likelihood of possible contagion to both humans and animals. Amelia was treated in an isolated area until she was no longer able to transmit the mange mites to others. 

This lovely lady is now ready to be spayed and will be available to adopt. Those interested in adopting Amelia, can contact us via e-mail or call Debbie or Karen to inquire at (973) 824-7080. File 57546-F  (Newark) .

Wonderful success stories like these only happen with your kind support of our efforts. Please make a donation today and help us create more happy endings.
