Matted Dog Makes Unbelievable Transformation

matted dog
Honestly, when I first saw this photo, I had no idea what I was looking at. I knew it was an animal but I had to no idea where the head or tail even was: the fur on this poor thing was just that overgrown. 

It turns out underneath this heap of unruly fur was one sweet matted dog… and a very neglected poodle.
Named Ginger, this 14-year-old (yes, 14!) darling had been surrendered at a Texas facility by an owner who admitted they just could just not care for the dog. It's a shame they hadn’t surrendered this poor pup a long time before the pooch got into this condition.
Vets at the Texas shelter say that Ginger’s teeth also suffered badly from inadequate attention and she will need extensive dental treatment as well.
Once the staff gave Ginger a much-needed trim, she emerged from the clumps of fur and showed everyone just what a sweetie she is.
Watch this video to see how Ginger looks now!

10 Strangest Items Swallowed By Dogs

My mother’s Schnauzer mix, Sha Sha, eats just about anything.  I didn’t quite believe just how often she would quickly snap up everything in her sight until a few weeks ago when she swallowed a quarter and a nickel in the blink of an eye. The vet advised my mother to watch her for the next few days as the coins would likely pass. It’s a very common issue among dog owners and it doesn’t only happen with puppies. The majority of dogs do grow out of the need to eat inedible objects. It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly what a puppy would eat so it’s best to be vigilant about where you dog is allowed to freely roam. Many dogs and puppies have been known to swallow seemingly unsuitable items, which  you might not find in any way enticing or preferable, but they do. Check out this list of the strangest things swallowed by dogs as witnessed by the  ASPCA :

10 Most Common Medical Conditions That Send Dogs to the Vet

No one likes going to the vet, especially our dogs. Like many others, my dogs can sense when they are going way before we get there. They get nervous and hyper. Some dogs whimper endlessly at the vet’s office while countless others have fear-induced accidents right in the office. While regular check-ups and vaccinations are a necessary evil, we can try our best to keep our pups in optimal health thus avoiding another dreaded trip. Veterinary Pet Insurance  compiled a list of the 10 most common medical conditions that send dogs to the vet. Some are unavoidable while others may be caught early on. Dr. Carol McConnell, DVM points out that many of the conditions that most regularly require vet visits “can be stopped early or successfully managed in partnership with a veterinarian.
