Mishka lived with our Foster volunteer Cathy for 11 months and immediately after she came in to us in December 2016 she attended the vets for very ulcerated ears and a very itchy, skin and was constantly scratching. For months we tried various treatments, nothing seemed to work for her.

For the last 6 months she has attended a homeopathic vet surgery and through trial and error it appears that her new treatments are working. Her ears are very much improved, her coat is beginning to grow back and she has almost stopped scratching. She has MRSP which means she is resistant to most of the normal drugs we had previously tried.

Mishka has improved to a state that we can now rehome her. We could not rehome her until we had done everything we could to resolve her skin issues. She may always have a slight ear and skin irritation, and she will probably be receiving homeopathic remedies for the rest of her life and the rescue will continue to pay for this.
Her food has to be limited to fish flavoured dry, and her treats are all fish based. She also gets 100% salmon oil and Organic coconut oil in her food on alternate days. Her Foster carer changed jobs in November and Mishka came in to our kennels, but 2 weeks ago she went out to a new Foster carer, Kath, who already has one of our rescue dogs. Both dogs get on great, however Mishka decided to come in to season 2 days later. Her brother who is neutered, has paid no attention to this, thankfully. Mishka, on our vets advice, cannot be spayed due to her MRSPand this will be managed carefully by Kath.Today, and no surprise to us............Kath has asked to Adopt her and we are very happy to agree to this
Mishka is a very happy dog, she attended a couple of events we were at last year and was the perfect dog, wagging her tail, ignoring all the other dogs and allowing everyone to pet her. She has a fascination for chasing white things....feathers, bits of paper, anything white and blowing in the wind!

We could have rehomed her 10 times over if she had been a well dog. This wee girl has had a lot of treatment and will continue to have, for the rest of her life and this is partly where the funds that are raised by everyone for us, goes towards.

We would like to thank Cathy for collecting her in December as an emergency, and to Eileen for looking after her in the kennels and also to Kath, her new mum. We know she will continue to get the same level of care with her and her brother.

We would also like to thank Wendy at Glenbrae vets in Bearsden for all the help and advice we have had. Mishka will continue to attend here for further check ups and ongoing treatment.
