The dogs pictured above were rescued by DC Dogos and were found to be Heartworm positive. Sadly, Starr crossed over the rainbow bridge in November of 2018 after she finished treatment and she will forever be in our hearts. If you need help obtaining heartworm prevention for your pet please reach out to your local non-profit vet clinics for recommendations and assistance.
Our rescues provides Heartworm preventative to all the fosters in our rescue. This costs us on average of $360 per month for the medication and shipping. We also provide flea prevention treatment to our fosters, which also runs at approximately $300 per month. We think it is important for our dogs to stay healthy and for our fosters to not be burdened by the high cost of these medications.
We often rescue dogs who have Heartworms and that diagnosis never deters us from saving a dogo argentino in need! Treatment for this horrible diagnosis runs us between $700-$2000 depending on what vet options we have where the dog is located.
Your donations help us cover these monthly costs and treatments that we offer dogs in our rescue. We think this is an important part of being a rescue and something that we feel strongly about!
If you need suggestions on where to get affordable HW preventative please contact us at DC Dogos Inc. Treatment costs $1,500+ and possible death, prevention is as little as $6.67 per month.
