Adult dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for DHLPP and rabies, heartworm tested, micro chipped for identification. They may be treated for fleas and de-wormed. They are also treated for any illness or injury they might have when they arrive to NBCR. Dogs are given monthly heartworm preventive and treated monthly with flea/tick preventative during flea/tick season. We feel giving heartworm preventative s important due to the region in which we live. To learn more about heartworms in dogs and why it’s important to use preventative, please visit the American Heartworm Society.
