Puppy by woxys Puppy by woxys
Today I got confirmed what I thought before - the local pack of Arctic wolves is ill.
All the members of the pack shows signs of this illness (mange or scabies?), some of them almost TOTALLY lost their fur. It was a terrible sight and I almost cried. Even this tiny puppy was scratching its head and its legs already showed symptomps...

It was terrible, terrible.
The journal with photos of ill wolves has been posted, but better do not look if you can not stand that sight. Go to my *woxys profile to see them, but consider it...

I think you know how much I love those wolves, I visit them since 2007 when they arrived... it is very hard for me too see them in this condition. Oh :( since I saw them today, I feel SO down.

it is possible to treat mange in all animals, it's caused by burrowing skin mites and the treatment is a low-grade pesticide applied to either the skin, orally, or injected. if this pack is in captivity or carefully monitored, it should be easy enough to treat them all. since they've all been affected by this, it's the more contagious variety that burrows into the hair follicles. the other version is easily fought off by the animal's own immune system. hopefully this gets taken care of soon, a healthy animal can easily bounce back from this.

:hmm: yeah, got to that part. it's sad that the pack has to be broken up, but hopefully it helps.
