Heartworms are Bad and So is Bloat

Mom now hates heartworms even more than she did yesterday.  Heartworms are actual worms that live inside dogs' hearts - GROSS!  Anyway, Tobi recently had her second heartworm treatment, and last night she started having trouble.  She was coughing up blood!

Tobi's cool foster mom called my mom to ask for help, and mom headed off at 2:30 in the morning to meet her at the ER vet.  Tobi got some treatment, and mom finally got home about 4am.  I was so glad to see her!  I spun and play bowed and kissed her face!  She finally had to cover her head with the sheet to block my love!

Due to the sleep deprivation, mom was grumpy all day today.  However, she did finally reveal to me that she got something cool while she was at the ER.  She got a copy of my x-ray from last summer when I bloated.  I ended up at the same ER and had emergency surgery.  Look at this!

How cool is that?  I had a totally giant tummy!  I can tell you, I have never felt so bad as I did that day!

Wow, that's an interesting picture! I sure hope I never get sick like that. :( I hope Tobi feels better soon. I remember HW treatment, and it's miserable.

We are so glad that you got over that bloat. Your mom is pawsome to go to the ER that early in the am. Dedicated to boxers, she is.
