The only that has changed at my house was that my husband was out of work for awhile so he was home a lot and he finally got a job.

They gave us doxy and said twice a day and also start giving her preventative and we will see you in 2 months.

You may need to work on that, as the only way to safely contain the dog.

Clarification question...what medication is being used to treat the heartworms themselves? The doxy I assume is precautionary for secondary infections?
Or is it actually Lyme disease your dog has, or another tick borne infection?
She has never been crate trained but I have used a crate to keep her inside before. As of right now the only thing that they have her on is the doxy, and in a month and half they will give her the other shots. They did a heart worm test and said she was +.

The doxycycline use is a stop gap measure for dogs waiting for Imiticide to become available. The link below offers info on the doxycycline protocol.

That is a big change for her. That could be part of her anxiety. He may have to spend some special time with her now...scheduled time so she will get use to the pattern. Then he can gradually change it or decrease the amount.

It actually is also used with the immiticide treatment, as a pretreatment, to kill the wohlbachia.

I agree 100% as I have had 2 dogs treated with slow kill protocol before Imiticide shortage. Since Imiticide is the only drug approved to kill adult heartworms , what drug was used on the op's dog as adulticide heaartworm treatment.

We have a foster black lab with heart worms. Just started the Doxycycline, 2x per day pre-treatment, 30 day regimen and he seems much more hyper now. I picked up the leash and he ran all over, bumping into chairs, spinning in a circle before I could get the leash on. This morning, he chewed up a pair of shoes. I know labs can be energetic and destructive, but it sure seems like his turbo boost has been activated by the pills. Before he was energetic, but more in control of his actions.

Bremaria,
Not sure if doxy is the cause of problem,you should check with your Vet.

I have used doxy since the 70s with good success for infection related to wound care with my hounds. In later years I used doxy and Ivermectin to treat heart worm infection in my hounds when Imiticede could found not be found.
