T&D Dog of the Week: Mojave

Mojave is a 1 year old, 57 lb Australian cattle dog/American pit bull mix. Mojave came to OHS from Tulsa, OK and is looking forward to finding his new family and starting his new life here in the Pacific Northwest! He is a sweet, snuggly, handsome boy who walks really well on leash.

Like many dogs from the south, Mojave came to us heartworm positive and is currently receiving treatment. It takes about 90 days to complete and consists of a series of drugs, both oral and injectable, that kill the worms, minimize the risk of serious reactions, and prevent the spread of the disease to other dogs. It is imperative that you continue the treatment with your veterinarian to completely clear this dog of active heartworm infection. While the dog is undergoing treatment for heartworm, it is absolutely imperative to restrict exercise, excitement, and overheating. He’s a young, active pup, but until his treatment is complete, he needs to stay calm and settled. Once he finishes his treatment, he can go back to doing on the fun things young dogs do!!
