    Melissa, that's great news given the circumstances, It could of only been better to be a mistake, and she was clear !! I've been following your post afraid to say anything, because of my lack of experience. My Vet tested Rocky before giving heart worm medication, However Mosquitoes are a year around thing for us, Rocky's doomed to stay on heart worm preventatives. You and Princess are definitely still in thoughts and prayers, and those Senior will surprise you with their surprising will to get through it, and their love is second to none.

So there are a few worms in her heart but the vet said her heart looks good! There are not a ton of them which is good news and even better news that she isn't showing symptoms! She is on Doxycycline for a month then we will start the first phase of treatment. The first phase is an injection of Immiticide, she will then have to be kept very calm with no exercise for a month (shouldn't be too hard for her!!), then after the 30 days she will have two more rounds of Immiticide 24 hours apart, again we have to keep her calm for another 4-6 weeks. The final phase is an outpatient administration of oral Ivermectin then another dose 10 days later! The risk of this treatment is when the worms start to die off they break and can cause blood clots, so keeping them inactive is crucial!! She does have a hernia but for now we just have to keep a close eye on it! Princess is a tough girl so I know she will beat this!
    Hooray! One for the good guys!!

    So glad you caught it in time before it got real bad. Hoping the treatment will have her completely clear of them in due course

    So glad to hear the news. I don't know much about heartworms or the treatment but so glad to know she sounds like she's going to pull through. Very happy for both of you!
