Apollo has tested positive for Heartworm, which is a life threatening disease dogs can only get from mosquitoes. Even just a tiny bite from just one mosquito is all it takes for the parasite to enter your pet’s body and bloodstream. Over time, heartworm larvae can grow into long worms that live in the heart and major vessels surrounding the heart. The heart muscles get weakened and the pet’s lungs slowly get obstructed. If left undetected or untreated, the worms can even cause sudden death. A yearly heartworm test and preventives are crucial for minimizing your pet’s risk of contracting this serious disease. Apollo tested positive at his annual checkup. He’s going to need at least 3 treatments, and each treatment is about $1000! During the treatment process, he has to be sedated, and he’s not allowed to play or exercise at all. This is a very scary situation for all of us, and we seriously appreciate any assistance you can offer. Even if you can’t donate, please take a moment to share his link ♥️♥️ #TeamApollo1 Thank you for helping us get our big meatball healthy again!
