Hope's Report Issue II

Canine Heartworm Infection
  Dear ---,   Heartworm disease, a potentially life-threatening condition, is found in geographic areas that house mosquitoes. While treatment is available for heartworm infection in dogs, prevention is much safer and has fewer side effects. After much research into product efficacy, guarantees and manufacturer rebates/complimentary products we are making the switch to Heartgard Plus. We feel that the Heartgard Guarantee beats all of the competitors and when paired with the rebate received when using NexGard(our tick/flea product), you are better able to protect your pet.  
Proactive Care Packages Our Proactive Care Packages are designed to help you budget the yearly, routine veterinary care your pet needs. Pay monthly or annually for an additional 10% off. When you take a proactive approach to your pets health, you help them live longer, healthier lives.  We have several packages to choose from to better fit the needs of your pets and your budget. Each package include multiple exams and all of the vaccines and boosters your pet will need in a years time. They will receive 2 fecals and dewormings throughout the year, a complete urinalysis(for adult plans), and either heartworm/tick born disease or FIV/FeLV testing. Your package can even include a spay/neuter or a dental cleaning! Call today to enroll!
Whats Happening Around Town? Back to School Bash August 4th, 2018 Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library (217) 558-8844 It will be a day of dueling ironclads, disguises and battlefield operations Aug. 4 when the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum presents a morning of free back-to-school activities for children.
Many of the activities are drawn from the presidential library's popular Civil War Tech program, which lets children explore the intersection of history and technology. Projects include sending telegraph messages in Morse code, designing bridges and building ironclad ships.
Kids can play a giant game of Operation on a Civil War solder, dress in disguises to snap selfies and put together a Gettysburg Address word puzzle.
Two activities at the Back to School Bash will honor children of Abraham and Mary Lincoln. Robert, loved golf in his later years, so there will be a mini-golf course. And Thomas was nicknamed "Tad" because his father thought he looked like a tadpole as a baby, so children will learn how to make an origami frog.
The free event takes place at the ALPLM's library building (112 N. Sixth St., Springfield) and runs 10 a.m. to noon. Activities are designed to appeal to kids in grades 1-8.
