NHS removes 9 pounds of matted fur from dog


>>I SAW ELLIE MAE WALKING
AROUND IN HERE, AND SHE WALKED
AROUND LIKE, I LIKE TO USE THE
PHRASE, “I WOKE UP LIKE THIS.”
SHE WAS WALKING LIKE THAT. WAVERLE: THIS IS ELLIE MAE AFTER
DR. AMBER HORN REMOVED 9 POUNDS
OF FUR FROM HER BODY. WHILE SHE’S LOOKING HER BEST NOW
— THIS WAS HER A FEW WEEKS AGO
AT HER WORST
— HER WORST.>>THIS IS ACTUALLY HERE HEAD UP
HERE. WAVERLE: NEBRASKA HUMANE SOCIETY
SAYS MATTING IS ACTUALLY PAINFUL
FOR THE DOGS.>>IT’S KIND OF LIKE HAVING A
BLOOD PRESSUE CUFF COMPLETELY
INFLATED ALL THE TIME ON YOUR
ARM. THATS HOW SHE FELT CONSTANTLY
ALL OVER HER BODY. WAVERLE: IT’S THE WORST MATTING
CASE NEBRASKA HUMANE HAS EVER
SEEN. NOT ONLY WAS THE PELT REMOVED
FROM ELLIE MAE, SHE ALSO HAD
7-INCH LONG NAILS THAT NEEDED
TRIMMING.>>THIS IS PROBABLY THE PROCESS
OF OVER A YEAR OF NOT HAVING
ACCESS TO CARE. WAVERLE: IT WAS SHELTER GROOMER
JENNA BASELER’S 3RD DAY ON THE
JOB. SHE SAYS SHE COULDN’T LET HER
EMOTIONS GET IN THE WAY OF THE
WORK THAT NEEDED TO GET DONE.>>YOU KIND OF SNAP IN THIS MODE
OF GET TO WORK, TAKE CARE OF
THIS DOG, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THE
LONGER THEY ARE UNDER ANTHESIA,
THE MORE DANGEROUS IT GETS, TOO. WAVERLE: WHILE DR. HORN SAYS
THIS CASE WAS AN EXTREME, SHE
SAYS THEY SEE MILDER MATTED
CASES OFTEN. ELLIE MAE IS STILL BEING TREATED
FOR OTHER HEALTH ISSUES, SHE HAD
DUE TO THE MATTING. SHE’S ON AN ANTIBIOTIC RIGHT NOW
BUT THE NHS SAYS SHE’S STILL
