Heartworm free! Those are some humdinger words for my brother Seager! Ya see, he went to the vet’s a few days ago for his final three month checkup. They had to take his blood and check it all out to make sure his heartworm treatments had worked. Well, the test came back heartworm free! WOO HOO!!! He made it!
Them heartworm treatments has been a long hard battle for Seager. He went through some awfully painful shots in his back. Those must have hurt him awfully bad ’cause he was in bad shape after each one of ’em. Then after each one of those shots, he couldn’t run or get excited for weeks! Well, that meant he had to go outside on a leash and stay inside with no playin’ time. That lasted for almost 60 days!!! He finally got to start playin’ and runnin’ this past month, but we have all been waitin’ on the final word.
While he was there gettin’ that test, and since he was heartworm free, he got one of those shots for heartworm prevention that the rest of us get. We ain’t lettin’ that ole heartworm disease happen to him again! Before he came to live with us, he lived in an outside pen and didn’t have no heartworm prevention. Well, I’m here to tell ya, that’s like askin’ for trouble!
Take it from Seager and me, it’s much better to give your furbaby heartworm prevention than go through the all the pain and expense of gettin’ rid of ’em.
