Beeji tested positive for heartworms. The Vet said it was an early positve so he didn't think the adult infestation was too bad.
He put Beeji on a three month treatment. The first was a series of 2 shots and Beeji had to stay overnight. I was to take him home and keep him calm (how I asked the Vet? He just said do your best.) I think it has something to do with as the worms are killed by the poison that is injected, they can clump or something and then pass via the heart or lungs and either can be fatal.
After the first 30 days, he goes back for another overnight and another shot, then 30 more days of calm. Then a final shot which he doesn't have to stay overnight for.
After that we go on the preventive.
Does anyone here have any experience with this? I am worried everytime Beeji gets active and he has managed to get in a couple of B500s on me.
I'd appreciate any knowledge, help, calming of me, etc that anyone can offer.
