So Buck went in for his first heartworm treatment this morning and I figured it was a good time for an update. He was a trooper at the vet, of course, I was a mess. A lot of the online information about heartworm treatment is very alarming, but the vet really made me feel much better about the prognosis, especially given the fact that Buck is so calm. Also, she said he is probably late stage 1 given his x-rays, so he should be ale to come through this with no permanent damage (but there is the beginning of some lung damage and heart enlargement).
