Heartworm and Flea & Tick Meds Request Form
If you live in an area where there is no heartworm disease and do not use heartworm preventative, make sure to give your foster dog the dose of heartworm preventative sent to you before your foster leaves your home when adopted. Our dogs are transported on a regular basis and they may travel through or be transported to an area of the country that is a high heartworm risk so please keep this in mind.
Heartworm medication is supplied through CPCRN, not your personal vet. You must have a heartworm negative test result prior to dispensing heartworm meds for the first time. Please check your dog’s intakes health records for verification of a negative test result, or check with your mentor if you are not sure if this test has been done.
Fleas and Ticks
If you live in warm areas of the country then your fosters will definitely need protection. There are northern areas where we seem to have no fleas/ticks, however, your foster may travel through a flea and/or tick area when adopted, where protection is needed.
If you do not use flea and/or tick protection for your own dogs, you will need one set on hand at most for your foster dog in the event they travel.
Note: all medication is the property of CPCRN and it is dispensed in accordance of a doctor of veterinary medicine. In the event that your dog is placed while you still have medications on hand, please bring this to the attention of your foster mentor.
DO NOT apply any topical flea control product to a dog if the dog needs an immediate bath.
First bathe the dog and then apply flea control 3 days later as directed.
