Buddy's Heartworm Treatment
Buddy is a male Rhodesian Ridgeback/Rottweiler mix estimated around 2 years old. We rescued him from an Emergency Vet Clinic when his previous owners did want to pay for the surgery, he needed due to an accident to his throat. He is recovering from his surgery nicely and will be up for adoption soon. Buddy did test positive for heartworms and will start his pre-treatment.
Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. We are currently raising funds to begin his fast kill treatment. The cost for his treatment is $800.
