**SPECTACULAR SPARKY** DOG FRIENDLY Age 1.8 Phoenix AZ. We found out that Sparky is heartworm positive. While no one wants to hear that that their dog has heartworm, the good news is that most infected dogs can be successfully treated. The goal is to first stabilize the dog if he is showing signs of disease, then kill all adult and immature worms while keeping the side effects of treatment to a minimum. Heartworms are not contagious; they are only spread through mosquitos. Our first step is to stabilize the disease. Sparky has been placed on medications and restricted activity. He will go through about a 6 month course of treatment. (has about 3 more months to go) A boarding kennel is a horrible place to be when you are not feeling well. So, we are looking for a place that Sparky can rest and heal. He needs a quiet, calm environment where he can get plenty of bed rest. During his treatment he will not feel well, will need limited activity, love and support. Could you provide that environment for Sparky? If so, please fill out an application to foster him through this tough time. All expenses are paid by our rescue. He is dog and people friendly!!
