Dog nearly dies of allergic reaction after owners dye her fur purple

Dog_Suffers_Burns_Violet

A dog nearly died after its owner used human hair dye to dye her purple.

Pinellas County Animal Services guided Violet through her recovery, and a spokeswoman said: 'Please take one thing away from Violet's journey - only use products specifically meant for pets or you could be putting your pet's life on the line'.

She was limp and listless, with eyes swollen shut and deep painful burns across her tiny body. She was immediately given fluids, pain medication and bandages, but those at the shelter didn't think she'd survive.

The centre said that Violet soon became more confident and started coming out of her shell. "Let's all say that together-Do NOT, under any circumstances, use hair color intended for humans on your pets", the post warned.

Pinellas County Animal Services posted the story of Violet, a white Maltese mix, earlier this week.

Violet was apparently abandoned by her original owner and left to her plight.




"It was so much worse than we initially thought - but would this little dog make it through?!?!" they wrote. Dogs can't have human hair dye put on them as it causes them great pain and can even kill them. The next day, Violet was put under anesthesia as her coat was shaved off.

Rescuers feared that she may go blind but months after her ordeal Violet is recovering and has a new home.

"And if we ever get an owner identified who did this, then we will work with law enforcement to try and pursue charges", Brightwell said.

"When the final bandages came off we breathed a collective sigh of relief - Violet was lovely", animal services said.

And her new owner, David Anderson, a dog groomer with Woofgang Bakery and Grooming in St. Petersburg, said he was grateful to Animal Services staff for going above and beyond in treating her. "I am so attached to her because she is the sweetest dog ever, and what they did for her is just fantastic and phenomenal".

After discovering that the dog's skin had already begun to slough off, the team started her treatment immediately. "Shes a very sweet little girl".
