Thank you !!! I love his smile :)-

Tomorrow new vet... a chest x-ray to see how his hart is doing ... and then we start preparing him for the heartworm treatment.... Who ever had this dog... should be injected with heartworm and see how he likes it.... One heartguard tablet is all it would of taken... Aww, well if I get started on my rant... we could be here all day.. How old is your dog...? how is her temperment? how long have you been involved with the AMBD...?

I know - isn't it infuriating. Heartworm is SO easy to prevent, and the treatment is SO brutal. He's a cutie. And now we have another Buster on board! :D

Buster is such a cutie. I feel your anger.Something that takes all of what two seconds could of been done to prevent this but he is in good hands now from the sounds of it.Get your baby well.Let us know how the appointment goes.

Buster is 15 weeks.He is my first AB.I previously owened two pits which have since passed and after doing much research I knew this was the dog me me and my family.He is such a joy and I love him to pieces.His temperment is great.
He is full of love and spunk.I wouldnt trade him for the world, he has me wrapped around his paw.........lol.

Kellll - I nearly keeled over when I saw the pics!!

Toooo cute, I have a red nose pit bull named chyna... She lives in LA... she is spoiled rotten to the bone!!!!!!!! She is a great dog and it pisses me off when people talk bad about Pits... she is a 110 pounds and thinks she is a poodle...

I chose AMBD also, because I felt the breed would do well with my apt life.. He is a love, I am also very happy having him.. I think once the HW is treated.. I am going to see the real... happy puppy... he was very much happy this morning and had a skip and a jump and a big doggy smile... he was playing with his ball and hoping all over my 1br.. hahahahha.. I will do what ever it takes for this guy!!!

I am so glad your puppy ended up with you..

Never had this problem before. What exactly is the treatment for HW? Why is it so brutal?

Hi..ya, Thanks for posting... :lol:

Heart Worm is not contagious through other animals it is passed through Masquitos. and the larvee (worms) nest in the heart.

I rescued my guy from Savannah GA were there is a big problem with the Masquito population. Puppys should be put on HartGuard as soon as they can. If not their chances of contracting it are 98% in the GA area Savannah being higher.

The treatment consists of two injections to the back..... The injections are a form of posion which is why it is so brutual... They have to be in quiet mode 24/7 and you or the vet needs to monitor the animal for 48 hours (2 days) because if their heart starts pumping on over-load they could die of anerisim or heart attack... They cant go on walks and can only be brough outside to pee and poo... And because my guy gets hyper and I mean hyper when fed-ex/ups and dhl trucks arrive.. I might have to leave him at the vets office for 5 days.. (?) So, if I could recommend to everyone keep your dogs on heartguard all year round even if it is off season for mosquitos because for the suffering of the dog if it progresses to a serious level of heartworm(beleive me I saw a horrible picture of a dogs heart that was in extreme festiation stage and it was horrible).
and $$$$$ you will spend on the treatment... could of all been prevented by common sense, love and one chewable tablet...

Yeah Lucy is my girl! :D Dozer was/still is my boy, he was one of the best looking dogs I've ever seen, even though he kinda had crazy eyes :wink: . Of course I'm a little biased, because I love him so much.

Your boy is good looking. Reminds me of my boy Moose. Not in the coloring but just his look in your picture. I had to treat one of my dogs many years ago and it was no fun for her. She was sick. Preventative treatment is the best thing to do to save the dog and yourself the pain. I'm sure he will appreciate everything you are doing for him.
