Dog Nearly Dies of Burns After Being Colored Purple With Hair Dye

A dog in Florida nearly died from severe skin burns when her owner attempted to dye her fur purple using hair color meant for use by people.

Pinellas County Animal Services shared the story of Violet, a tiny 2.2kg Maltese on Facebook, with a warning against ever using human hair dye on pets. The shelter, which named her Violet, said her skin was covered in burns, her eyes were swollen shut and her body was limp.

The workers at the centre were pretty sure that she was going to die, but they gave her medication, fluids, and tried to get as much of the colouring off her as they could before wrapping her in bandages.

"Express yourself, but please do not use hair dye intended for humans to express your pets style", the Animal Services Facebook post warned on Tuesday.

Animal Services shelter director Doug Brightwell said "a good Samaritan" found Violet wandering around as a stray and dropped her off at an emergency after-hours clinic in St. Petersburg.

They said: "Violet began to tell us what to do - it started with a little noise; not really a bark, not really a cry".

Maltese dog on death's doorstep after owners dyed its hair violet. Would her hair ever grow back? "And unfortunately, most times, these people are smart enough to not come forward now, especially knowing what happened".

After her long road to recovery that included lots of painkillers, antibiotics, scab removal, and even being connected to a drip for a while, she is now healthy again and has a new home thanks to the kind folk who rescued her.

"When the final bandages came off we breathed a collective sigh of relief - Violet was attractive", animal services said.

After discovering that the dog's skin had already begun to slough off, the team started her treatment immediately.

Three months after the incident, the PCAS has announced that Violet is now barking, can walk freely around the premise and is on her way to recovery.

Violet is also getting along well with Andersons other dogs, Mushu and Sushi, who are both shih tzus.
