    You may remember Peggy my oegb rescue with a bum leg. She had severe scaley leg mite. Well she is almost completly back to normal now. She can actually scratch the dirt for bugs and take dust baths she will also put weight on both feet now. Before she couldn't even use her leg. I have had her for a little over 3 weeks now.

    How did you end up handling this for her? I remember the original post. I had used vaseline on my girl and the improvement was amazing! Almost instant.
