Harper’s Heartworm Treatment

About a month ago we had some neighbors move in that had 2 beautiful German Shepherd dogs. Instantly my kids grew attached to them and wanted to see them all day everyday, so the hubby and I knew we needed a dog for the kids! 

I searched and searched on PetHarbor and there she was “Harper”. Bentley (my son) and I immediately went to the shelter to go see her. We took her out to the exercise pins and she was just PERFECT for us! When we went to the front counter to adopt her they informed us that Harper had heartworms. We have never owned a pet with heartworms before but were told by employees at the shelter that she could take doxycycline and advantage multi heartworm prevention and she would be fine. 

Unfortunately, this is not the case for Harper. We took her to the vet and she is high heartworm positive and the only treatment option for her is to receive injections to kill the heartworms. As devastating as it was to hear that... we just knew there was no way we could give her up no matter the cost! She is my son’s best friend and just all around the best dog ever! 

The vet gave us an estimate of $2383.65 for her full treatment amount!! Please Please help us save our girl!!!
