Doggie is almost 80 pounds now. He was diagnosed with heartworm some weeks back. He was supposed to start treatment but then the hurricane came and it got re-scheduled. We took him in to the vet yesterday morning only to find that we had the date wrong and was a week earlier than scheduled. But we have great vet and she went ahead and started treatment. He's back home today. He has to be very still. Keeping him still is probably like trying to hog-tie an octopus. So we use drugs. He's sleeping right now. Unfortunately he's going to have to be still for at least a month. This is just the first half of the treatment. Poor dog. Poor pocketbook too.
