The funds raised from our Have A Heart Calendar Contest will benefit the many dogs in our foster program affected by heartworm and tick borne disease complications. We are a huge proponent of heartworm slow kill treatment and our program is very successful. Click here to learn about our program.
The dogs in our program currently are featured in the hearts of our promo banner and this contest is dedicated to Daisy- a senior English Setter that suffered terrible neglect including heartworms, Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. She was only in the program a little over 3 months but succumbed to kidney failure and had to be let go in June of this year. Her ashes are buried in my flower bed by some daisies.
The medical expenses to help one of these neglected dogs with vetting discounts if the dog is negative at the 12 month mark can run as high as $1,000 with the cost of the following:
- Heartworm test $45 X 2= $90
- CBC/Chem and 371 tick panel $180 X 2= $360
- Spay/Neuter $100
- Medications and Heartguard $400
We currently have 9 dogs going through this treatment plan, and are awaiting the arrival of a heartworm positive Pointer from Kentucky soon.
Here are some of the dogs in our Slow Kill program currently.
