Nana is located in our foster home in St. Charles. Please visit our website at www.illinoisanimalrescue.org to view our adoption process and our adoption fees.
Nana’s heart worm treatment is part of her adoption fee. First, heart worm is NOT contagious to other dogs. The only way a dog can catch heart worm is by an infected mosquito & if they are not under heart worm prevention; which Nana was not. There are 4 stages/courses of heart worm treatment. 1st: 28 days of anti-biotics; 2nd - heart worm prevention medication. 3rd: (30 days later) 1st injection of Imiticide done by our vets. 4th/last: (30 days later) two consecutive days of Imiticide and treatment is done.
Nana will need to be on restricted activity until she gets cleared by the Vet – about 6 months from start to completion. Any questions please email our Foster Coordinator at email@example.com. Please do not let heart worm stop you from adopting this sweet girl. NOTE: Nana will be ready for the 3rd stage/course around the 3rd week of March.
