This dog tested positive for heartworm disease before arriving to the rescue and has since been treated. Heartworm disease is transmitted to a dog through a bite from an infected mosquito producing a positive test in six months. Potential adopters will receive detailed information on the disease and their role in completing the recovery process from OPH’s heartworm coordinator. With monthly preventatives, the disease is completely preventable.

While Seville was undergoing her heartworm treatment the veterinarian discovered a possible issue with her hip joints. Seville has since been diagnosed with hip dysplasia in both hips. Due to her heartworm treatment it would be dangerous for Seville to be undergo surgery to have this repaired before February 2019 (6 months post heartworm treatment). Seville is looking for an adopter who will love and snuggle her while she is a restricted activity until she has fully recovered from heartworm and can have her hips repaired. OPH will work with the right adopters to fund the surgery at one of our best veterinarian partners.
