This week's SIU Law Dog is Dooley, who came to live with Candy Sue and me after Dakota died last fall. Dooley is very loving and gets along fabulously with Candy Sue. Click on the small photo here to see more of Dooley.
Shortly after we adopted Dooley, he was diagnosed with heartworm disease. He had to undergo an unpleasant and potentially fatal course of treatment. Just this week he had his final post-treatment heartworm test, which showed that he is clear of heartworms. Don't let this happen to your dogs. If you haven't already done so, have your dogs tested for heartworm and start them on heartworm prevention medicine. Learn more from the American Heartworm Society.
The SIU Law Dogs and Cats of the Week will be on a hiatus until we receive more photos. Thanks to everyone who contributed. If you are an SIU School of Law student, professor, staff member, alumnus, or friend of the law library, see our Call for Photos for instructions on submitting your dog or cat photo.
