Our great volunteer Angelina caught and brought in “Snowhite” to Dr Damiani.
The clinic preformed
-Skin scraping which ruled out Scabies (mange)
-Fungal test (ringworm)( pending results )
-Under general anesthesia we shaved the area and cleaned with a chlorexidine solution to remove all the scabs and disinfect the area as well as possible
-We tested him for felv , fiv and heartworm ( all negative)
-Given Mrs. Angela approval we neutered him .
-currently he is on antibiotic therapy.
Among all the other possible underlining causes, especially if the ringworm test wil come out negative, They have to include a skin rush due to Herpes virus.
Keep your paws crossed for Mr Snowhite!
