Male ~ 4 years old ~ Corgi ~ In Foster
This was a big week for our sweet boy Chewie, who spent some time at the vet for Heartworm treatment. We’re happy to report he did well and is resting comfortably at home – albeit with a lot of medication – until his follow-up appointment on the 18th.
We’re lucky we got Chewie when we did and can give him the care he needs. But, unfortunately, many dogs aren’t so lucky. Heartworm is a serious disease that not only impacts the heart, but also the lungs and other major organs, and could lead to death if it goes untreated. The good news is, it’s a disease that is 100% preventable with monthly preventatives. Please make sure you and all the dog owners you know keep up with monthly Heartworm prevention. If you have questions, talk to your vet!
