Print an adoption flyer for Brody!
UPDATE : Brody just completed his 2nd and 3rd Heartworm treatment today and is resting at home now. This sweet boy completely won over the entire vet staff with his wonderful demeanor .
30 more days of restricted activity and he will heartworm free ! Good food and good meds and this handsome boy is now up to 96 lbs, about 4 lbs less than his ideal weight, but at least his ribs aren't showing .
If you are looking for a gentle giant please check out Brody .
BRODY is doing well in his foster home although becomes anxious when she is out of the room. He is so happy to be safe again he has a bit of separation anxiety, which we are working with to ease.
Sadly, after Brody's first vet visit we learned his heartworm infection is advanced and his heart is slight enlarged . He has started the initial part ( 30 days of Doxcycycline ) and will have his first injection in early December. His risk of a pulmonary embolism from a clot of dead heartworms is much higher due to the level of his infestation.
ASR does the conservative treatment of 3 injections to allow our HW+ dogs the best possible chance for a full recovery and we will be doing the same with Brody.
For any adopters interested in him he will need slow walks and very restricted activity while going through heartworm treatment . Overall this will be about 90 days since he has already started the initial part of the treatment
Poor Brody found himself at an overcrowded shelter, not a good place for a Heartworm Positive dog......but when shelter workers sent out a plea for this good ole boy, we could not say no.
Once he has settled in we will start his heartworm treatment and help add some weight to his skin and bones frame.
Tonight this nice boy sleeps well on a soft bed with a full belly, thanks to wonderful volunteers .
More to come.
THANK YOU TUESDAY S. FOR YOUR SPONSORSHIP OF BRODY FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER.
