If you missed the introduction of Lady LizzieBelle you can read about it HERE.
Ah, isn't she cute?
Along with some obvious skin issues and fleas, she also had tape worms and, unfortunately, she tested high-positive for heart worms.
The tape worms and fleas are now gone.
The hair is slowly starting to grow in some areas.
And, it's been two weeks since her first heart worm treatment.
She's had one heart worm shot from the vet. In the last 14 days she's had a daily dose of antibiotics with 14 more to go. Every Wednesday she gets a dose of Heart Guard until her next heart worm shot in four more weeks.
This process will continue until all the heart worms are gone.
It's a slow process but it's healthier and easier on the dog.
She's quickly becoming spoiled-rotten but she remains a sweetie-pie and such a good dog.
I honestly believe she appreciates her second chance for a good life.
She is sound asleep on my lap as I'm writing this blog post. She's definitely a lap dog.
It has taken us a while to get into a routine but after four weeks I think we finally have one established. Which makes us all happy!
Till next time,
