It's been a few days.

Well it’s been a few days since Skeeter’s first injection in her heartworm treatment.

By all outward appearances she is back to normal. Skeeter is a four year old terrier OES mix with the terrier temperament. Outdoor activities are now conducted on a leash.
Before Skeeter’s diagnosed she had free run of our 13 acres rural property.
She is getting a little annoyed with the life on the leash. Another activity she cannot partake in is the near daily 2 to 3 kilometer walks. These activities need to be curtailed to prevent the increased risk of clots and embolism from the die-off of the parasites during treatment.

For you information I offer up the American Heartworm Society as a source for detailed information.
