My poor Brody 🙁
My son and I adopted Brody from a rescue last year, they guessed he was around 10 months old. He’s been the best dog I’ve ever had. At the time we adopted him he had a clean bill of health. It was time for his yearly vaccinations and I took him in and found out he has Heart Worm Disease. This was found in a blood test and I was informed that it would only show up if he had the disease for more than 6 months. It’s transmitted to dogs from mosquittos, thankfully not contageous from dog to dog because there’s two other dogs in the house. If left untreated, he only has a couple years to live and it will be a miserable death, as his organs will shut down causing heart failure. My poor boy has to go through a month of antibiotics (he’s going to HATE peanut butter) and then injections. He’ll need to be on “cage” rest for a month after each injection because if one of the dead worms breaks loose from his heart and into his blood stream he could die. I can’t remember the rest of the treatment because it was all a lot of take in. But I do know there are a series of shots and cage rest. He’s such an active dog, it’s going to be a chore to keep him on cage rest.
The treatment totals around $1300. To raise money to help pay for his treatment I am offering pet photoshoots for the next two months. The sessions will be on location and I ask for a minimum of $50 donation. Just call, email, or comment here to book your date. Evenings after 6:30 and weekends are open.
