Our puppy has improved much more in two weeks than I had thought was possible. Her fleas and other skin problems are gone- all she needs to do now is grow her hair back. Her belly has filled out and she’s eating nothing but regular puppy food. If she has any internal parasites left she’s not showing any symptoms.
Although she’s much more comfortable around us now, she’s still a little skittish. If I’m sitting on the couch she might approach me and roll over for a tummy rub, but if I walk across the room towards her she still runs away.
All in all, not bad for two weeks. The problem now is that, having rescued her from the brink of death, we’ve naturally become very attached to her. Giving her up to a new family is going to be really difficult.
