Gilda needs heartworm treatment

On Sunday, September 14th, Paul arrived Red Lake Rosie's Rescue from Ponemah with a load of two dogs and two cats that were surrendered.

One of the dogs named Gilbert, much to my surprise, turned out to be a female, so I renamed her Gilda.  Gilda is a lovely shep mix about 3 years old.  She follows me around the shelter while we do chores, and is very obedient to go into her kennel when our day is over.

The previous owner had Gilda at our clinic so she is already spayed.  Gilda was boosted for rabies, DHPP, and had the heartworm diagnostic test.  We hoped she would be negative, but we were not too surprised to find out that Gilda was another heartworm positive that will need treatment very soon.

We are hoping to have funds in our Heartworm Fund to be able to help this great dog.  If we treat her now we can expect her to test negative by Christmas.  This will give her an opportunity to be transferred to a rescue and get a forever home.

Thank you for helping Gilda get her Christmas wish.

Sincerely, Karen Good RLRR
