Sometimes, the perfect dog doesn't come to us perfectly healthy. One such problem is Heartworm. Just as it sounds, this is a condition where worms can live and grow in a dog’s heart and, sometimes, lungs. This is transmitted from dog to dog by mosquitoes. When treated early and correctly, heartworm is highly curable and is preventable. That's why City Dogs Rescue is grateful for the support of the Humane Society of Charles County, located in Waldorf, Maryland. They provide low-cost heartworm treatment for our dogs, even after adoption.
Matt, one of our adoptive dads, said that the treatment Molly received at Charles County was "first rate" and that she is "just fine and back to normal." And Frank, Mason's dad, said that he "received excellent treatment... is doing quite well now... and plays at the dog park almost every day." He also said that getting Mason "in and out of the clinic was quick and easy and everyone was responsive and helpful whenever we had any questions."
Heartworm treatment is just one more way that CDR works to keep our dogs healthy before and after adoption. Thank you again to the Humane Society of Charles County for helping us do this!
