It all started on Thursday, the day of the month that mom gives me the yucky heartworm medicine. I have to get it in 1/4's cause I'm only 3 & 3/4 lbs and can't tolerate much of it at once. It usually only makes me a bit poopy but this time Oy Vay!!! I threw up TWICE yesterdays and had the runnys so bad it was liquid. (Sorry for details but it was BAD) Mom called my vet and they said I'm d.o.n.e. with this icky medicine, but needed to heartworm test me to be able to give me a new prescription. Mom held me and the Dr. took my blood and I didn't squeek, cry or growl or bite or anything!! I was SO brave! Mom bought me a pigs ear from the vet to celebrate my bravery. She said I'd appreciate it more than a medal and she was right. So, the vet gave her the new prescription and we went home to get it called right in and on the way home as I was chewing on my pigs ear a brittle peice came off in my mouth and I about choked! Freaked us both right out, but I was OK> Mom pulled right over and almost drove us right back to the vet! But, I was fine, so home we went. And the vet didn't even charge us for an office call, just the test! THat Dr.Hills a keeper I tell ya! I feel SO much better today!! And my new medicines already on the way. Dr.Hill said if I have probs with this new med, I maybe won't be using heartworm meds and that's scary for mom. Moms been sick ALOT lately, so we haven't been able to go to my fav places, like the petstores and stuff and mom feels bad about that, but she's feeling better now cause I've taken such great care of her! Everytime she's slept, I sleep right on top of her to watch her close and make sure she's breathing ok and to make sure no one disturbs her. It's been a big job, but I've been up to the challenge and she's up and around again, thanks to me!! YAY, I'm superdoggie!!

foxxy had the same problem with the chews. We had to go on to interceptor and that's a itty bitty pill so it was really nice! At least you didn't get to the point where she was swelling in the face
