Great news... I went to the vet for my Bordatella/physical. I did awesome! I was crying at some other dogs in the waiting area. I looked at Dr. Mount and didn't flinch when she examined me! Overall Dr. Mount gave me an A+ for my visit! Even my teeth look so much better now that mom is brushing them for me (no thumbs to hold the brush with!)

Not the not so great news... my fecal came back with hookworms. Mom was pretty upset considering my Heartguard Plus said it helps take care of them! Well she called Dr. Mount and requested that Grunt get treated also. She asked Dr. Mount if the Hearguard had failed (she agreed) and if we needed heartworm checks. Dr. Mount assured mom that the heartworm meds would be fine, but would do a blood draw at mom's request. She also said if mom wanted she would change my preventative. Mom said let me think on it. Well mom got the meds for me and Grunt. They're real expensive. Grunt had a belly ache from the meds, I just chill regardless! We have to have a second dose in 60 days (mom marked her calendar) and a fecal recheck in 90.

Mom just bought 6 months of HW meds and doesn't want to lose them so she said after they're done we're going in for bloodwork and then changing our HW meds. Mom and Dr. Mount agree there is a parasite issue with where we live. Mom's going to do a fecal check every three months until things seem alright, then she will do a fecal 2x's a year. Can't hurt right?

So sorry Sweetie...

Tell Mum to change to Iverhart MAX if what both the Boys are on and we have no problems. We changed from Heartguard about 9 mths ago. Its also cheaper.. and does more.

It CAN be that the buggies locally have a resilience.. not making excuses for the pills.. but just sometimes they are doing the best job they can...

We have been worried not hearing from you.........
