Mack is my 8-year-old rescue dog who was diagnosed with heart worms last year. The vet told me heart worms are incurable & since Mack has some trouble breathing, this seemed like a death verdict hanging over him. The little guy hasn’t got a mean bone in his body.
Yesterday I took the two new big dogs named Bianca & Gus for primary care & both tested positive for heart worms. But this vet said heart worms are in fact curable with two series of shots. That’s a relief not just for Bianca & Gus but for little Mack. The vet techs also gave me a tutorial on heart worms for my other dogs.
I’m posting this in case anyone else has a vet with outdated notions about heart worms. It gives my little Mack, Bianca, & Gus a real chance at life since with heart worms they’re not considered for many adoptions.
