From the Heartworm Treatment Study

Andrea writes

Good morning. 

I went to one of your clinics to get my dog Quincy tested for Heartworms and he was positive. He is a 53lb mix pit. My son had rescued him on New Year's Eve.

Quincy was actually a friend of my sons dog but he was left outside with no shelter and a rope tied around his neck that was cutting into him. He was fed every other day.

When my son realized this, he just took him, and these two have pretty much been together since.  They go mud-ridding, swimming, on boat rides.  He is a JOY to have in our lives and loves to give hugs and just jump into your arms.  

I appreciate anything you can do to help us get him well.
