Bernard came to AHS as a transfer from Austin Animal Center, where he was surrendered with another dog to due to owner moving into housing that doesn’t allow pets. After his intake, he tested positive for heartworm, which he needs medication for. It’s a treatable and preventable condition and Bernard should be his happy, active self in no time with support.
Bernard has been getting oral medication treatment for his heartworms to kill the juvenile worms. He has had his first injection and will be getting the rest in the series throughout November. This will kill the adult heartworms. After the injections, he will have 30 days of medication to finish his treatment.
Foster and Adoption
Bernard went to a foster to adopt home. He will get the last two heartworm treatment injections this month and then the adoption will be finalized!
