Photos Courtesy Ruff Rescue and Rehab, Inc. Two poodles were recently abandoned in a house and left to stave to death by their owners in South Carolina. A good samaritan brought their suffering to the attention of rescue and animal control after two weeks. Diamond in the Ruff Rescue and Rehab, Inc. took the two dogs to seek immediate medical attention and animal control is also involved. The rescue has withheld the worst pictures, but is releasing a few (above) to show the public the suffering which these creatures have endured. The rescue is in desperate need of funding to help pay for the emergency vetting both dogs received for their dehydration and the additional medical bills to come. Additional vetting will be done on Monday, May 19th at the rescueâ€™s regular veterinary clinic. Both dogs were found emaciated, dehydrated, had their eyes matted shut - causing infection - and their ears were blocked up with balls of wax and hair so that the dogs could not hear. Both dogs are male but were unable to urinate properly because they had huge mats hanging from their penises. Each time they urinated, they burned themselves with their own urine. When the mats were removed, both dogs had bloody spots where the urine had burned their skin off. Their body hair was so matted that they couldnâ€™t walk without the hair pulling the skin. Their nails where so long that, when they walked, the nails would tear from the toes, causing immense pain; some nails were even growing upwards because they were so long. The older Poodle, the one in the pictures, was the worse of the two because he could not eat. He only has two teeth and his lower jaw is mushy and soft from chronic infection. In addition to that, his mouth was also matted shut. His weight is only 3 pounds instead of a normal 7-8 pounds. The other Poodle is only 5 pounds instead of the normal 10 pounds he should be. Immediate emergency care for these dogs was $160. This covered the emergency call, veterinary exam and IV fluids for their dehydration. On Monday, the rescueâ€™s regular veterinarian is going to do a blood panel workup to check for any organ damage due to their starvation, urine tests and routine veterinary care such as heartworm checks and intestinal parasite screenings. They will also get all antibiotics and skin creams needed at this time.
