Arrival Story: While I was camping in Miss. at Clarko State Park,due to being homeless at the time. I heard a dog behind my tent howling. I took a look, and there was a Bassett Hound, it was pouring Rain. I went to the tent door and whistled and he came running. He seemed friendly enough, so I let him in the tent. The cats were not so sure about him though. LOL! I noticed he had a deformed right front leg. In the morning I called the Park Ranger and no one had reported a missing dog. I went around to all the campers, and no one even owned a dog, supposively. Atleast that is what they all said. He had no collar on him, so we adopted him. Max is such a love. He gets around with all the cats, except Ollie. It's actually Ollie who doesn't like him, and Max just doesn't understand it. LOL! Max and Ralph became best buddies.
After Ralph passed away, Rusty, Ralph's brother, became best buds to Max!
Well I wanted to let you know how the treatments have been going. After having, sever x-rays, blood work, and my 3 injections which was herd on me, I am now on the road to recovery!!! Yippy! The Vet told my Mama I still needed to stay calm and relaxed, no running, playing ball, taking walks until after the summer when I have a recheck to make sure the treatment worked and I am free of heart worms!
I am now beginning my Heart Worm Treatment, since I tested Positive. The Vet explained to Mama there were two ways to deals with my case. We decided to go the aggressive approach, to kill the Heart Worms quicker. I am on Antibiotics, which is 4 pills a day for a month, plus I also started the prevented heart worm Tablet. In a couple of weeks I go back for an x-ray and then an injection of the medicine. Then 30 days later I go back for two more injections. Please pray for me that I don't have to bad of side effects.
Mama found out some good news about my medicine. The Vet will not have to order it from London, even though it is only made in Europe. There is a company in Florida, that the Bush's told us about, that has it in stock! It is not as expensive there as it would be in England. Still about $250.00, but Mama wants what is best for me! Mama will see the Vet today, with one of our kitties, and will ask him more details when he can get it.
