Bear received his 2nd treatment for heartworms yesterday and is finishing up with his third and final treatment today! According to Bear's owner, Bear did really well following his first treatment!
Bear was rescued by his family after his original owner had passed away. Read his full story here.
Although Bear is receiving his final treatment today, he still has some recovery time before he can begin his normal everyday life. Did you know that heartworm treatment is nearly a 1 year process? Thankfully, preventative medications are available and are more cost effective than treatment! Talk to your veterinarian about what heartworm prevention options are recommended for your area!
Bears owner says she is "Praying for a successful end to his heartworms and a long happy life for our sweet rescue Bear. He definitely has come a long way. He us a fighter!!! Thankful to your organization and all you do."
We are so thankful to have been a part of getting Bear back on his feet and ready to enjoy the rest of his life with his family.
