I have been told that my adopted dog has tested HW+ and I have had the “Slow-Kill Treatment Protocol” explained to me, along with the name & contact information for the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society’s Heartworm Positive medical coordinator.
I agree to follow the treatment guidelines of the “slow-kill treatment protocol” and have discussed this with my vet, who will support me in this treatment plan.
I agree to stay in contact with the rescue, and specifically with the HW+ coordinator, to request more medications as needed (which the rescue will provide) and to give status updates on my dog’s HW treatment plan.
I understand that the “Slow-Kill Treatment Protocol” can take up to 18 months to show a “negative” heartworm status for my dog. Depending on the severity of the heartworm infection, some may be sooner and some may be later – but that most heartworm positive dogs do test negative within 10 months to 14 months.
I understand that due to the physiological differences of the Great Pyrenees breed, to have a slower metabolism and higher negative physical reactions to the medications in the “fast kill” treatments, that the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society requires that all HW+ dogs adopted through this rescue must use the “slow-kill treatment” for their health and well-being.
I understand that if I decide to break this contract, and begin the fast-kill treatment plan on my adopted dog, that I am responsible for all medical issues and/or side effects that may arise from using the fast-kill medications.
I understand that if my adopted dog develops seizure disorders, neurological disorders, or dies from the fast-kill treatment plan, that I will not be reimbursed for my dog, and I will not be given a “replacement dog”, and I will not be allowed to adopt from the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society again.
