Chulo's knel had lost another member of the family. Ken, died last April 11 due to red mange he had suffered since he was a puppy.
Ken arrived home last May 8, 2008. He was nearly bald and few of red mange visibly seen in his skin. Although in his condition he manages to cope with it and had grown as an adult pit bull.
I have him checked from my veterinary for many times. I also tried to apply some homemade remedies like boiling guava leaves with water and the solution is mixed with sulfur powder. Sometime, the red mange can't be seen in his skin but it only takes two weeks and it will come up again.
Ken died because the red mange causes his foot swells and made wounds. He wasn't able to eat his food for three days. I wanted to bring him in veterinary but my vet said it won't be possible now to cure him. So what I did is waited him to die. Sad but true, I can't do anything for him anymore.
Goodbye my buddy and friend.
