As for the fleas, Pinky definitely has them. "Pinky did have fleas present and she has areas of hair loss on her back and rump," Varanini told The Dodo. As for the severity of the fleas, it could have been more of an issue of getting the fleas out of the family's home rather than off of Pinky. "We treated the source of the problem, the fleas on her body, with a topical flea preventative," Varanini said. "However, if the home itself was overrun with fleas, other measures would have been needed to completely eradicate the problem."
Pinky is now at the shelter, and you can contact them about adopting her here. If you're in another area and ready to provide a pet with a forever home, visit Adopt-a-Pet.com.
