The last couple of days have been really rough around here. Seager is finishing up his heartworm treatments by gettin’ his final injections. We got to get rid of those awful heartworms he had when we got him. I told y’all a while back about him startin’ heartworm treatment. He got his first Immiticide injection a while back and now it has been another 30 days. Man, he was just startin’ to feel good after the first go-around!
Yesterday, he got his second Immiticide injection. Then today he got the third, and final, one!! By the look on his face in his picture, I think he knew he DID NOT want to go in there! Them shots must be hum-dingers for sure! The vet said the shots are very painful and makes ’em hurt real bad! The injections are put deep in the back muscle. Well, two days in a row he got a shot, so now both sides are a hurtin’ him and he just paces and paces 🙁
Now, all we can do is wait. He has another 30 days of limited activity, but the next 2 weeks will be the dangerous time for him. They said the worms will be a dyin’ off. They want him to stay calm and only go outside on a leash to do his business. I sure hope he’s gonna be alright! I wasn’t real sure I wanted a brother, but he has kinda grown on me and I feel real bad for him 🙁

I hope he makes it through everything alright! I'm terrified of anything like that happening with my "kids"! Good luck Seager!!

Thank you Chantelle! He has made it through the night and is fairly quite this morning, but doing good. It has been a really bad and painful ordeal for him :( Be sure and use those heartworm preventatives!
