February is Heart    Month, Please open Your Heart to a Boxer in need, by helping us make our Heart whole. 

Every year thousands of Boxers go un-detected with Heartworm Disease.   By donating towards a piece of our heart, you are helping to purchase heartworm medication for the Boxers in our program.  Each pill is roughly $10.00.  A small donation for a piece of a our heart will go a long way to prevent this horrible disease.   Please open your Hearts and help us make our heart whole again.  

 

Canine Heartworm
 
Heartworm is a serious and potentially fatal disease in canines.  Heartworms are a parasitic worm (about the size of thin spaghetti) and normally live free floating in the right ventricle of the heart and nearby blood vessels.  Heartworms are contagious, but not directly from an infected dog to another dog. In all cases, baby heartworms must be transferred to a mosquito, and then injected into the next dog (or back into the same dog) by the mosquito, before they can grow into adults. So dogs acquire heartworms from being bitten by a mosquito who is carrying heartworms from an infected dog.

  

Your $10.00 Donation will purchase a piece of our heart.   Please be sure to write the name you would like shown on your peice of the heart in the merchant note when making your donation.  Together, we can make our Heart Whole Again and help prevent Canine Heartworm Disease! 

Heart Month

The average lifespan of heartworms in untreated canines is 5-7 years; virtually 100% of dogs exposed to infective heartworm larvae become infected.   The American Heartworm Society (AHS) estimates that only 55% of dogs in the U.S. are currently on a heartworm preventive, leaving 27 million dogs at risk of acquiring this horrible disease.  In the USA, veterinarians recommend Heartworm prevention for dogs.  Please see your local veterinarian to have your pet tested and put on preventatives yearly.
