Flea / Tick & Heartworm Prevention $20
Flea / Tick & Heartworm Prevention
Infected Ticks carry Ehrlichiosis caused by bacteria of the family Anaplasmataceae, ( commonly known as Ehrlichia and Anaplasma ). The bacteria infect and kill white blood cells in the host canine.
Fleas also carry tapeworms, which can cause severe gastrointestinal parasites, as well as system-wide problems in dogs.
Mosquitos are more than just pesky little bugs. Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the North America and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected dogs. Heartworm disease causes lasting damage to the heart, lungs and arteries, and can affect the dog’s health and quality of life long after the parasites are gone.
Your donation of $20.00 USD will go directly to the purchase of certified and regulated Flea & Tick Heartworm Prevention which will ensure that one dog’s health needs are protected for 30 days.
Snap 4Dx Test $25
Anaplasma, Erlichia, Lime disease and Heartworm
The SNAP 4Dx Plus Test is a screening test recommended for all dogs. It detects the presence of antibodies to B. burgdorferi, A. phagocytophilum, A. platys, E. canis, and E.ewingii. It also detects the heartworm antigen.
In plain English, this special screening test immediately detects Anaplasma, Erlichia, Lime disease and Heartworm, which is vital for our vets to know, to start treating the street dog right away to protect their health.
Your $25 USD donation will ensure that one dog gets fully tested for these dangerous infections upon their arrival at the Sanctuary.
Vaccinations – Rabies & DHLPPC $30
Rabies – Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus & Parainfluenza Corona virus.
The dog should receive a rabies vaccination at the age of 16 weeks. Rabies Booster shots are recommended on a yearly basis. In order to be adopted Internationally, proof of Rabies Vaccination with more than 30 days prior to departure is required by law.
The DHLPPC is an annual vaccination that will protect the dog against the following potentially fatal five diseases: Canine Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parvovirus & Parainfluenza Corona virus.
Your donation of $30 USD will help ensure that one dog will receive these life preserving vaccinations that will keep them safe for 365 days.
Blood Tests $ 40
Hematic Biometry and Blood Chemistry $40
The hematic biometry, also known as a blood count, is a complete count of blood cells such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Likewise, it reports the hemoglobin values and some related variables. All this in order to provide detailed information on the dog’s health status.
Hematic biometry provides information on the absolute or relative numbers of the different types of blood cells, as well as various structural and functional characteristics of them.
Deviations from normal values can reflect disease, physiological states (such as pregnancy, childhood or old age), injury or dysfunction of almost any part of the body.
A blood chemistry panel is a procedure in which a blood sample is checked to measure the amounts of 7 to 25 substances released into the blood by organs and tissues in the body. An unusual (higher or lower than normal) amount of a substance can be a sign of disease in the organ or tissue that makes it.
Your donation of $35 USD will help ensure that one dog will receive a full battery of blood work to help identify the health status of the dog.
TVT Treatment $400
Canine Transmissible Venereal Tumor (CTVT)
Canine Transmissible Venereal Tumor (CTVT), also known as Transmissible Venereal Tumor (TVT) or Sticker’s sarcoma, is a transmissible cancer that affects dogs. CTVT is spread by the transfer of living cancer cells between dogs, usually during mating. Canine transmissible venereal tumor (CTVT) is also known by various names such as stickers tumor, venereal granuloma, canine condyloma, transmissible sarcoma, transmissible lymphosarcoma and histiasarcoma.
Chemotherapy remains the best way to treat these tumors. Various chemotherapy medications can be administered over the course of 4 to 6 weeks and can result in complete remission. Recovery from TVT can be good. Some tumors can spontaneously regress without treatment. Tumors that require treatment have a 90% chance of complete remission with the right therapies.
Your donation of $400 USD will help ensure that one TVT infected dog will receive a complete series of chemotherapy treatments.
Heartworm Treatment $500
Heartworm disease in dogs
Heartworm disease in dogs is a deadly parasite spread by mosquitoes. Left undetected, it causes lung disease, heart failure and other major organ damage. Testing is the only way to know if your dogs have it. Adult worms and their microscopic offspring live in the blood stream of infected dogs.
Mosquitoes pick up the offspring when they bite (feed from) an infected dog and carry them to the next dog they bite. These tiny offspring grow into large adult worms that can range from 6 to 12 inches in length. As the worms grow and reproduce, they interfere with blood flow throughout the dog’s body.
In the early stages of the disease, many dogs show few symptoms or no symptoms at all. The longer the infection persists, the more likely symptoms will develop. Active dogs, dogs heavily infected with heartworms or those with other health problems often show pronounced clinical signs.
Your donation of $500 USD will help ensure that one heartworm infected dog will receive a complete heartworm disease treatment, giving it the chance to survive this deadly disease.
