Sidenote.... the vet went great, I’m off all activity restriction and heartworm free, plus I put on 7lbs and feel much better since my adoption, mom’s proud! 🐾🐕❤️ PSA*** PLEASE TREAT YOUR 4 LEGGED FUR BABIES FOR HEARTWORM, as a Pet Owner this is part of the responsibility and part of loving them. A reported 45% of American dog owners DO NOT treat their dogs for heartworm, educate yourself and make sure your fur baby isn’t suffering from heartworm which is essentially Congestive Heart Failure/Pulmonary Hypertension (cats can get it too). Talk with your vet about this serious condition a simple blood test can determine if your pet is positive.
Gabe was adopted and we had no idea what we were taking on... but today after 5 months of treatment he is happier and healthier then he has ever been. #loveyourpets #protectyourpet #pethealth #loveyourdog #gettested #gettreated (Second pic from the American Heartworm Society webpage)
Proud to be heartworm Free!
