This is Santi. My 6 year old German Shepard.
As you can see he has skin problems. He’s had them his whole life. Our veterinarian usually
prescribes him prednisone and it clears up. Forsome reason the prednisone hasn’t worked
this year. ( he has allergies to grass and certain weeds)
He is also having trouble with his hips and has trouble getting up and down. He will not put
pressure on his left leg and limps around
on three legs. I’m afraid he may have hip
Santi is a wonderful loving fur baby. He loves
everyone and protects our three grandkids
ferociously when they come to visit.
He’s not eating well and has lost a lot of
My husband and I have rescued cats and dogs for over 17 years now. Unfortunately, due to
age, money and space we are unable to take
any more in. ( though I am usually able to help
find a rescue for any animals in need we come across.)
I’d like to take Santi back to our veterinarian
and have allergy testing done in him as well aschecking for hip dysplasia ( which I have heard is common in German Shepard’s.)
We have several other dogs who have healthy skin and coats so I know it is not a form of
mange plus, he was tested for that the first
time he had hair loss as a puppy
If you can help Santi and I would appreciate it.
It is heartbreaking to see him suffer. He lays
on the couch whining and begging me with hiseyes to help him with the pain Something
we’ve always been able to do. Until now.
Sadly, our finances only cover our bills with
very little left over now .We’ve been trying to save money to take him and we have managed have a little put away for him.
Any donations would go to getting him to the vet ASAP, medication and testing for his allergies and hips.
Thank you and God Bless
