This month’s Champion of the Month is Lacie McVay.

Lacie was adopted by Dr. and Mrs. McVay from Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation in September 2013 at about 4 months of age. She had patchy hair loss and darkly discolored skin, which was originally considered to be related to the poor nutrition and living conditions from her difficult early life.

Within a few weeks, she started to become very itchy and was subsequently diagnosed with Demodectic mange. She came in every week for over 2 months for an injection to kill the mites. She also got a bath every 2-3 days at home to help improve her comfort and prevent secondary skin infections.

On December 6th 2013, she received her last injection and was declared cured! She has been doing great at home ever since.
