Rutger - ID#346895
Rutger is a Border Collie mix dog. He is estimated to be 6 years old. He is a very active and playful dog. He is strong and athletic. Rutger needs to have daily exercise both mentally and physically.
Rutger was treated with Immiticide for heartworms by another rescue. This is an effective and convenient treatment for heartworm disease. Rutger should remain on a monthly heartworm regiment and have yearly testing done at your Vet's office. The series of injections that were given will slowly kill the heartworms over the next month or so. These heartworms will leave the heart and float to the lungs where they will be dissolved by the body. Follow up instructions will be provided. Please consult with your Veterinarian prior to adoption.
