Questions about heartworm treatment
We adpoted a dog from Texas over the winter, we believe he is a pitbull shepard mix. Our vet ran a heartworm test and he tested positive. We started on the doxycycline yesterday and in 60 days he will get his first injection. At this point just being on the doxy do I need to restrict his activity to bare minimum, or are walks on a leash OK? I am so afraid I am going to mess up and we will lose him, crating him is not an option as he panics and busts his way out, which will cause his heart to race.
