Handsome three-year-old Hunter joined us after he was taken from an abusive situation. Routine vetting revealed he was heartworm positive. Further diagnostics showed the disease was fortunately not yet acute, however he still needed to follow a lengthy treatment protocol involving medications, special injections, hospitalization, and months of rest in his foster home. Hunter is relishing a well-loved life with his foster family and is eager to get his treatment behind him and be ready for hikes next summer.
Our veterinary partner for Hunter’s veterinary care is Alameda East Veterinary Hospital.
