help Sandy Mae be healthy again

We rescued Sandy Mae about 2 weeks ago (01/19/2018) from a very high kill shelter in North LA - Lancaster. We knew that she has severe skin issues because her nose was extremely crusty, her paw pads were very red and swelled, around the eyes she had a dark skin with missing fur and swelling. Her entire coat was in a bad shape. She had a medicated bath at the vet next day after she got out and the vet treated her for skin allergies based on the first visit. That vet bill was $500.00.

When she went in for a re-check a week later, the vet said she is suspecting that Sandy Mae has an autoimmune disease and we need to consult a specialist dermatologist. She was scheduled to see a dermatologist on 02/01/18. They had to put her under anesthesia so they can take samples of her skin from multiple sites and do biopsies, cytology, and fungal testing. The bill for this visit and testing is $1,181.58. After getting the results they will have to decide what type of medication she will need.

She had to wear a cone for these past 2 weeks every day because she is very itchy and keeps licking her skin and paws and that doesn’t help with the healing process. One of her paw pads was so swollen that she was limping on that leg.

She is 9 years old and as sweet as she can be. She is very loved and cared by her foster mom. Her favorite thing is to just sit by the screen door in her foster home or the window and watch the squirrels playing in the backyard. She was obviously much neglected in her previous home and we really want to help her be healthy again and live happy from now on.

We need your support collecting the funds that we spent for her care. I am sure it will not end up here as the treatment will be costly as well. Please help us help Sandy Mae if you can. Any small amount you can spare to help Sandy Mae is much appreciated. Thank you.
