A few weeks ago, one of mom's furiends rescued a pug.  This guy was used by a backyard breeder as a stud and finally was going to live the life that every pug deserves - a life of luxury including napping, eating and playing with his new siblings.  He even got a new name for his new life - Brando.

Brando had to make a trip to the vet this week and what they found was not pretty....  Hook worms, whip worms and the dreaded heartworm!!

Heartworm invades the heart and slowly destroys the heart and is fatal if left untreated.  It's very important that your parents use a heartworm preventative to keep this from happening to you!!  You can find more information on heartworm and heartworm prevention here.

Brando's dads have rescued and are owned by several dogs, including two other pugs, a chihuaha and a St. Bernard!  They truly are special people and are heartbroken that sweet Brando has these nasty worms.  

We ask that you send some good healing juju and prayers Brando's way so that he gets through the heartworm treatments with no complications.
