Sadly, sweet Karma tested heartworm positive when seen by a MAGSR vet, she obviously was not kept on monthly Heartworm Preventatives which would have protected her. She is currently undergoing heartworm treatment to rid her body of Heartworms so that she may enjoy many more years of life. Treatment is expensive but Karma is certainly worth the cost.
Donations towards her treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs
Karma has settled in nicely to her foster home and is enjoying her new life while she awaits her forever home. She enjoys hanging out with her foster brothers and sisters, getting out for her short walks, and giving lots of kisses and tail wags to whomever she can reach. Karma has a sweet and playful personality that gets along with kids and other dogs.
Also, Karma’s heartworm treatment is going well. Treatment is relatively easy to do, it just takes a few months. It requires an oral antibiotic with her meals for the first month, and three injections over the course of last two months. After receiving the injections, she is put on crate restriction to limit activity and help her recovery. This crate restriction is actually a great time to adopt the dog, as it allows the dog to get used to their new home in a calm environment and to slowly introduce freedom in the house. Karma is available for adoption while she’s receiving treatment, so if you’re interested in meeting this sweet girl, contact your adoption coordinator today!
Sweet Karma was returned to MAGSR through no fault of her own - her family was not able to keep her. Karma is finishing up her heartworm treatment and she has been wonderful through it during her crate restriction. Karma is very anxious to be adopted by a family who will commit to her for her life and to start her life heartworm free. If snuggles and kisses sound like something you're looking for, then Karma may be a good fit for your family, so please ask to meet her now.
