53071 – Diamond
Medical Case – Heartworms 🙁
Why choose me?
Update: Unfortunately, Diamond has tested positive for heartworms. Athenspets will do our best to help with the cost of her treatment, but an adopter or rescue should be prepared for some added expenses and the exercise restrictions of treatment. To learn more about heartworms, including how to treat and prevent them, please go to the American Heartworm Society’s webpage.
Update 1/26: Thanks to our Medical Fund donors, Diamond has been checked out by Firehall 4 Animal Hospital! Her listing to the side doesn’t seem to be anything that needs medical care; while we are hopeful it will improve, for now it’s just the way she is. No matter–she doesn’t mind! She’s looking for a rescue or adopter who will look past it and give her a chance to be a beloved family member.
Today may well have been a day of firsts for Diamond. She’s spent much of her life in a small crate, so maybe today was the first time she was able to run in a wide-open area, be loved, and play with toys. She was actually a little clumsy and tumbled head over heels while running with a toy, but she got up and wanted to keep playing. She LOVED pets and treats and would press her head against us when she was petted. I hope a better life is ahead for Diamond. She’s so sweet and full of love.
