Sparky is Heartworm Positive, which means multiple rounds of treatments to kill the microfilia and the adult heart worms. We are asking for your help for this gentle giant of an Aussie. He is also showing signs of hip dyspepsia. For now we want to take care of the Heartworm and get him well.

Next Steps are a visit to Yorkville Animal Hospital in roughly 30 days.
