Review for STARelief and Pet Assistance, Stamford, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

November 10, 2016.

God bless the great folks behind the veil at STARelief org. and the generosity of all who donate to this great program. Special thanks to the board for their compassion and expertise in recognizing when a familys plea is dire and genuine.
I am a disabled veteran and my pension was terminated leaving me with only 133 monthly income. I have a family of five that includes myself, wife, son, 5 yo Eskie "Levi", and cat. With limited income i was unable to provide flea treatment for my pets and as it turned out Levi eveloped a severe reaction from fleabites and began knawing at his back pulling hair out in clumps. His situation was extreme so I had to act fast.
I went online first to diagnose > flea dermtitus - allergic reaction to flea saliva.
Next I tried to find home remedies that would help at all with some good success.
I was able to make his head gear to prevent anymore self mutilation and creation of any more open sores.
I found that Benedryl would help relieve some itching and i could use the extra betadine from my surgery to clean and disinfect his wounds until healed enough to clean with baby shampoo.
He was now infested w fleas and his sores looked infected. So again i go online and find our pets saving grace. . . STARelief org!
Without Starelief our "Levi" would still be suffering without
the proper medical attention that provided relief from the pain and discomfort of his condition.
Also equally important is the HUGE sigh of relief felt when our feelings of anxiety and helplessness were lifted just by knowing your pet will be comfortable and healthy again!
