See the guy that adopted me didn't take very good care of me. He didn't give me a Heartworm preventive so I got Heartworms, I also got Hookworms. Then he had to move away for work and he left me behind. His sister in law kept me as an outside dog, cause their inside dogs didn't like me and we were always fighting. I was always going off (I actually went a very long way off) and one day I found Mommy. She feed me since I looked hungry and after I ate I went home. I did this for a long time you can read my rescue story here.
read about the heartworm treatment here. While none of us really like taking medicine. Taking us to the veterinarian, making sure we are up to date on shots and giving us our monthly medication does make us feel loved. ~Tuiren
