This special little guy is Harley. We met Harley 12 years ago when he had his first puppy exam just 3 days after Christmas! He has been a patient at ACC ever since. In April of this year, Harley developed very severe skin lesions and also some enlarged lymph nodes. Dr. Evans was worried that he might have a systemic (body-wide) problem and maybe even a cancer. She knew the fastest way to an answer was a biopsy and some lab work. These tests revealed a bladder infection and also a type of skin mite called Demodex. Demodex is usually a disease of puppies, so Dr. Evans was worried that Harley’s immune system might not be working well. She started a course of treatment and it worked! The bladder infection is gone and so is the Demodex! It took a while, but Harley’s skin looks wonderful and he feels great! Kudos to his “parents” for hanging in there! We love unexpected success stories!
