Animal Cruelty: Poor Dog Nearly Dies After Her Owner Dies Her Purple

The whole situation had happened when the owner of the dog thinks to color his dog with the hair dye which makes the dog nearly died from severe skin burns.

The Pinellas County Animal Services captured the devastating effects human hair dye can have on animals after a 5-pound dog named Violet was dyed a purple color.

The purple dye also caused Violet's eyes to swell shut, and the post warns against another significant danger-internal burns.

The PCAS team went on to describe Violet's "arduous" road to recovery which started with the staff having to shave her hair off to measure the damage that was caused. He said he doesnt believe that Violet was maliciously dyed purple and that the owner probably didnt realize the consequences of using human hair product.

Violet, a little five-pound Maltese-mix, got a dye job that almost killed her. When the bandages were removed, the staff found Violet with all her hair back.

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

To the staff's horror, Violet's skin started to peel off due to the chemical burns from the dye. "So as you dry up those tears please take one thing away from Violet's journey - only use products specifically meant for pets or you could be putting your pet's life on the line". "And unfortunately, most times, these people are smart enough to not come forward now, especially knowing what happened". Would her hair ever grow back?

Rescuers feared that she may go blind but months after her ordeal Violet is recovering and has a new home.

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

Have you ever tried your hair dye on the dog?

After three months of intense case, including antibiotics, IV fluids, honey treatments, scab removal as well as anesthetizing and bandage changes, Violet's condition improved.

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