Thank you all for following Maverick's story. He had a lot of issues when he first came to us such as mange, heartworms, and kidney issues. He had to go to the ER often. We weren't sure he'd make it. He's a fighter though. His foster mom loves him dearly. So, he knows love and support. He's finally gotten to the point where he can start heartworm treatment. However, we have to do it slowly and on a special regimen. It will take 4-5 months. Here's a few updates for you.
Update 4/21/17: Wonderful news from Mav's vet! He is now heartworm negative! This young man has come a long way from when he was first rescued in south Texas. He is finally is well enough to undergo anesthesia for his dental and neuter. We know he will feel much better getting some bad teeth out of his mouth.
