Dumplin arrived at the ACC on April 9th and he came home with me on April 15th, so he is starting his second week of treatment. I have been told that he has already improved over the past week (dear lord he must have been bad when he first arrived).

His skin is really bad, particularly on the underside of this belly, all 4 legs and on his head. That is called 'generalized mange.' It's quite raw in a lot of places, puss-ing, foul odor, obviously he has bacterial and maybe other secondary infections.
He doesn't like the stairs but tolerates it to get out and he hates his cone. Without it he will scratch his head which has very bad scabs and it will bleed.
Monday morning 9am was the soonest vet appointment I could get. It can't come soon enough.
