Heart Evangelista-Escudero is a name that bears various titles—celebrity, fashion maven, wife, painter. But one of the most resounding title that is attached to her—and one that has inspired many—is being a dog lover.
A known advocate for animal rights and a speaker on behalf of animals in the country, Heart has always been vocal about being a responsible pet owner. One of her advocacies that she has been most passionate about is her love for Aspins (asong Pinoy). She voiced out the noticeable discrimination against Aspins and has sought to champion their welfare (and other animals as well) by partnering with the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) to lobby for the amendment of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) in 2013, which increased penalties for animal offenders. Heart explains that she wants more people to recognize Aspins as beautiful, loving and loyal dogs and should be given the same care, love and respect as pure breeds.
If there’s one Aspin that’s well-known in the country, it would definitely be Panda. Seen on most of Heart’s posts, Panda is a constant companion whenever possible. “I’m always with Panda because she goes with me wherever I go even if I’m shooting or filming, except when I travel, especially since my husband’s always away for work. It’s nice that I have my fur buddies to keep me company,” says Heart.
With so much passion for her dogs, Heart cares for them with “Three Times the Love”. Seen as a holistic approach to canine health that goes beyond just token care, she personally oversees their health to make sure they get only the best. She shares, “I show my love for them by making sure that they’re healthy by giving them the right dog food or I even have their food cooked with boiled carrots and other really healthy food because I want them to have long lives with me. I love spoiling them and making sure they’re always comfortable so although some of my dogs sleep with me, I still put beds or mats in little corners of the house. I love giving them treats cause they love them!”. Heart adds, “I wish I can take them with me to a trip somewhere where they can run; I think that’s always the best especially now because we’re always just stuck at home.”
With an advocacy that has an abundance of love for our furry friends, Heart shares a reminder to existing fur parents or those who ponder over having one. “Having a dog is like taking care of a child as well; the responsibility of being a pet owner isn’t a joke. Apart from giving them love and their basic needs, we have to make sure that they get proper medical care just like how we do it for ourselves as humans,” she adds.
Complete Protection in One Tablet
As a responsible dog owner, Heart wants to help highlight the importance of dogs’ holistic health thru regular medication that protects your dogs from the inside and helps prevent unwanted diseases. To help ensure that her fur babies are in their best health, she only gives them supplements from a trusted brand that has dedicated goal to deliver quality medicine specifically designed for our dogs.
Trusting only the best for her fur babies, Heart is the newest ambassador for Simparica Trio, the first monthly chewable tablet to protect your dog with three proven ingredients designed to protect dogs against heartworm disease, ticks & fleas, roundworms & hookworms. “I treat my dogs like my children, which is why I make sure to take preventive measures to keep them safe and healthy. What I love about Simparica Trio is that it provides comprehensive protection against deadly parasites such as intestinal worms, ticks and fleas and most especially heartworm. And another good thing is it comes in a yummy chewable tablet, and they only need to take it once a month! Imagine the protection and the convenience, right?!”, she excitedly shares.
Heart also added “I’m blessed to have them with me. Dogs can love you unconditionally and are so pure in this world. What we can give in return is their happiness, comfort, and well-being so they can stay with us for a long time.”
