what a difference a day makes

WARNING: Graphic images!

Below are photos from June 7 - the day Milo arrived at Skyline Veterinary Hospital  and these are the photos which they took of Milo during his prescribed shave down and assessment.  They are graphic, but they demonstrate the urgency of his need for care when he arrived there.

These two are close up of the infected ear and neck abscess areas.  Notice that there are live ticks still clinging to him and crawling around on him.  
Minus 3 lbs of matted and tick infested fur.  The red sores are from where the nests of ticks had been located.  
 The staff did a fantastic job of shaving Milo and getting him cleaned up.  It was not a job for the faint of heart!  I've seen shave jobs where the dog was totally razor-burned, but Milo was done very well.  Great job in helping this dog!
