Medical Update

I forgot to tell everyone that I went for my heartworm follow-up with Dr. Debbie on Monday.
She said that I am doing good. I gained 2 pounds, my heart and lungs sound good, and that I seem to be coming along nicely.
She gave me some medicine so that I do not get heartworm again, and also some for hookworm - I had them before the heartworm treatment but since the heartworm was a priority Dr. Debbie and Mom decided to wait until the treatment was done to take care of them.
Dr. Debbie also said that I have to come back in August and get another heartworm test, and depending on the results of that test I might have to get another treatment, she said that sometimes it takes two rounds of the treatment to really get rid of them - but she is hoping that we won't have to.
So, I am definitely doing better and I do not have to sit quietly all the time. I can play like a real doggie should!

Steve, I agree with you - NO HUSKY should have to be calm and quiet - Do you know how hard that was? I am so glad it is all over!
