What are you waiting for.........

Street dogs in Sri Lanka suffer from a variety of life-threatening skin conditions. Worms, ticks, mites and other skin parasites can be agonising for a street dog. Often, they will lose their fur, scratch until they bleed, or in some cases, scratch themselves to death.

The great news is with special skin care these dogs can be transformed.

Please join us and make this Christmas special for the street dogs in Sri Lanka.

WHY skin care really matters - Sidney’s Story

Sidney was a Sri Lankan street pup who lost all his fur due to parasites. His daily life was one of constant itching, his skin was raw, he was covered in maggot-filled wounds, and every step he took was agony.

If Dogstar hadn’t found Sidney, he would have died in a matter of days.

We applied a simple spot-on treatment within 24 hours his itching – and his suffering - had stopped and the healing could start.

After three treatments over a period of six weeks, Sidney’s transformation was incredible. Not only was he pain-free but his skin had healed, and fur had fully grown back.

With his beautiful new coat and the chance of a fresh start, Sidney found his forever home and now lives a very happy life.

Did You know??

  • Mange is caused by parasites mites and mange mites are cigar shaped.
  • Mange mites feed and reside in the hair follicle and oil glands of the skin.
  • Ringworm isn’t a worm it’s a fungus.
  • A flea can jump vertically up to 7 in (18 cm) and horizontally up to 13 in (33 cm), making the flea one of the best jumpers of all known animals.

It costs just £10 to do one skin care treatment.
