Hank’s program provides diagnosis and treatment for heartworm positive dogs coming into rescue, and provides necessary heartworm preventative for all SWESR dogs prior to their adoption. A devoted SWESR family created HHP in 2013 in memory of their beloved first English Setter. Their dog Hank came into rescue with severe HW disease and had to endure two treatment cycles. The program exists to honor Hank and all dogs who have needlessly suffered this highly preventable disease. At the deeply discounted fees charged by SWESR-associated Veterinarians, each course of treatment costs roughly $400 compared to a year’s prevention of $60. The drought relief in the Southwestern US has resulted in an increase in disease-carrying mosquitoes and SWESR must be ready to treat and prevent!
