Danny the lurcher puppy was surrendered to the care of the ISPCA after he was discovered by ISPCA Inspector Lisa O’Donovan at a property in Cork city with unusual sores and hair loss. All of the other puppies in the litter were in perfect health, but Danny’s condition was worrying. He was in severe discomfort, with sores covering his head, body, legs and feet.
Inspector O’Donovan was concerned for the puppy, as no veterinary treatment had been sought for his condition, and he would have continued to deteriorate if left untreated. Inspector O’Donovan immediately brought him to the vet for an examination. The vet has, as yet, been unable to determine the cause of his hair loss and sores, but is still carrying out additional testing to rule out any ongoing issues with his health.
Inspector O’Donovan said: “Danny’s condition must have been very painful, and veterinary attention should have been sought before it progressed. Fortunately he is now in the care of the ISPCA Centre in Mallow and is receiving the treatment he desperately required. Throughout his ordeal, he has proved to be a very sweet puppy, and once his treatment is complete, Danny will make somebody a really lovely pet and we are confident that he will make a full recovery”
Danny is only 9 weeks old, and will be available for adoption after additional veterinary testing and treatment for his condition are completed. He has been through a lot in his young life, and it will be good to see him healthy and in a loving home of his own soon.
