When the Rodriguez family got their dog, Snowy, at three months old, she lost all of her hair. The family brought her to C.A.R.E.4Paws’ mobile clinic, where they found out that Snowy had mange. “My husband was desperate and wanted to give her up because we couldn’t make her better,” says Lourdes Rodriguez. However, Carlos Abitia, C.A.R.E.4Paws’ cofounder and mobile clinic manager, and our clinic veterinarian, Dr. Tom Thompson, told the family that Snowy could be treated and get better and grow all of her hair back.
Snowy went through the treatment for mange and after that, she got spayed and received all of her vaccinations, thanks to a generous veterinary assistance grant from PetSmart Charities.
“C.A.R.E.4Paws services are very important,” says Lourdes. “The staff is very friendly and treats you very well, and they have all these services for pet owners in need. It is an exceptional service!”
