Unfortunately, his previous owners did not have Hank on Heart Worm prevention, and we just discovered he is HW positive. He will begin his treatment soon.
We keep trying to educate people about the importance of maintaining a regiment of monthly HW prevention (or Proheart which last for 6 months). Considering the alternative of contracting this potentially fatal disease, it isn’t difficult or expensive to administer a monthly pill. Treatment protocol for HW disease is costly and uncomfortable, physically and emotionally as the dog needs to remain calm and have very limited activity during the 30-day treatment, and then the dog can slowly begin to increase exercise/activity over the next several weeks. As dog owners, we owe it to their family dogs to keep them healthy.
