What a Transformation Tuesday we couldn't wait to share! Please meet Fezzie Wig! Fezzie Wig and his owners had been to 2 other veterinarians before coming to Pawling Animal Clinic where he had an exam with Dr. Jankunas. His owners were doing everything they could to help figure out what was causing his hair loss and the crusting all over his body.
Fezzie Wig had a biopsy performed to see if we could find a cause for his symptoms and we did! The diagnosis was Pemphigus Foliaceus which is the most common autoimmune skin condition in dogs and cats and is characterized by pustules, erosions, and crusts. This can cause the skin underneath the crusting to become raw and painful. Fezzie Wig was started on steroids for the last 3 weeks. What a difference!!! Fezzie Wig now has his beautiful, shiny, hair growing back in, no more crusty scabbing on his body and he just feels so much better. His owners are 2 of the nicest ladies we have ever had the pleasure of meeting and seeing them wanting to do everything they could for their boy, meant so much to us and to him.
This just goes to show how much we truly love our jobs and that we want to help your pet just as much as you do. When you finally find a diagnosis and a treatment that works and get these results, it's the best feeling in the world to know you helped an animal and their loving family.
The photos attached are from his first visit with us, 1 week after steroids and 3 weeks after steroids! 🐈🐾👩⚕️
