Eko- the tiniest frenchie girl that we brought back from the auction is in the hospital right now- she is going through heartworm treatment and she is having some complications. The last month is the hardest for a dog in the treatment as the heartworms actually die and are sloughed off into the body- they do not pass them in their stools. The body has trouble with this part of the process and the white blood cell try to attack and kill the invasive dead worms in the body. She is having trouble breathing and they are trying to stablilize her and she is on oxygen as well- so I would like everyone to say a prayer and/or think healing thoughts that this strong little sweet girl pulls through this! I really do believe that as a group- our well wishes will help her- I have seen it happen with other dogs! They think one of the dead heartworms may have gotten in her lung and that is what is causing the breathing and choking issue right now- but first they must stabalize her!
This is why heartworm treatment and testing is sooooo important for everyones' dogs to have- please do not let your dog go untested or not give them heartworm treatment!!!!
Eko is a tiny girl and it is one of the reasons she is having such a hard time with the treatments. You couldn't ask for a sweeter dog- she rode home from MO the whole 14 hours in one of our laps and slept and curled up with us!
please please please= include her in your thoughts tonite!
It is also the reason we are making the meetup a fund raiser tomorrow- to help with the vet bills as Eko and Classy go through their treatments and all the others that had ear infections, eye infections, spays. neuters, UTI's and everything else!
Will let you know when I know how Eko is doing- she will have to stay overnight at the vets' office with someone there with her 24/7 if she gets through what she is going through right now!
