I love animals and just trying to help by finding good homes for animals that other people did not want or care for. Our adoptions fees are lowest anywhere in Houston. The American Heartworm Society (AHS) publishes Guidelines for the Prevention, Diagnosis, and Management of Heartworm Infection in Dogs. It is our understanding that until these guidelines were amended in January 2014, “soft” or “slow-kill” treatment (giving the heartworm positive dog a monthly HeartGard to kill of the larvae and allowing the adults to die on their own) was recognized as a viable alternative to Immiticide treatment. Even with the amendment, the 2014 Guidelines recognize that, when there is a shortage of Immiticide (as there currently is), soft treatment is the only option. Certainly, in Houston, where there is a high incidence of heartworm positive dogs, the Houston rescue groups and their veterinarians explore the appropriate treatment options, and the slow-kill method is a widely accepted alternative. It is shocking to think that if a Houston rescue group or pet owner determined with their vet that the soft treatment was in the best interest of the dog, they could be charged with animal cruelty. DOING NOTHING IS CRUELTY! WE SUPPORT 100% SLOW KILL PROCESS.
