Duke is a 5 yr old Purebred Male. Unfortunately Duke has some medical issues primarily concerning his ears. Duke will be on medical hold for the next few weeks while he undergoes treatment for his ears and begins his heartworm treatment process. Please check back for updates.
Duke tested positive for heartworm and will receive treatment when he arrives in Colorado. He will need to be kept calm and quiet, with no running or playing for a full month following each heartworm treatment. Duke will also need a follow up bloodtest in 6 months. Both his treatment and his bloodtest are paid for by GRFR at one of our contracted vets. Duke's forever family will need to be sure he takes a monthly heartworm preventative year round. Some people might be leery of a dog like Duke who has had heartworm, but there is no need to be. It is both curable and preventable.
