Hello all,

Alba had her last treatment for heartworms on Tuesday! :(

We brought her home yesterday and she is so out of sorts

What is expected for recovery?

Her appetite is awful, and I just worry about her not eating. And it is impossible to get her to take her meds because she wont eat!!!

I have tried chicken cheese peanut butter, etc, I have tried forcing them down, and she spits them right out. I even tried to crush it and put it in with some chicken, and nope :(

Suggestions or advice for anyone who has done this?!!?

Call her vet and let them know what is going on, you may need to take her back in.

How a dog responds to heartworm treatment varies, some do great and have no adverse effects like which was the case with my dog Jersey. Some dogs can become deathly sick from the treatment like my friend's dog did, her dog did survive but it was a fight to save him and required a lengthy stay at the vets.
