Heartworm Treatment Goals

Research has shown that the Gold Standard set by the American Heartworm Society is the most effective program that yields the best results.

What is the process?

1) Partners-4-Paws uses donations to pay a veterinarian to perform the test.

2) Partners-4-Paws get results and:

   a)  purchases preventative Ivermectin to the shelter or rescue for  dogs who test 


    b) makes arrangement for treatment for dogs who test positive

3)  Dogs who will be undergoing treatment are ideally placed in foster care to maintain kennel rest while         under treatment.

4)  Provides transport to/from the treatment facility as needed.

Partners-4-Paws pays for the care received, so donations are always needed.
