Hi marilou,
You are most welcome for the advice.
I do certainly hope your dog is getting better. I know that my 3 dogs are like children and I have one that is 15 years old and any morning I expect to wake up and him be gone to doggie heaven.
I dread that day but I know that is is coming.
Frankie

Hi,

I talked with my husband use to deal with precore and other chemicals. He said the best place is to look at your pet store and where they sell chemicals to look for the precore. Be sure that it has precore in it. And good luck you pet. I know what it is like. I have 1 dog, 2 kittens, and a hamster and believe me it does get tough.

ticks on my dog "angie"

Hello everyone,
my wonderful dog "angie" died wednesday afternoon.
I now believe it wasn't ticks after all. I & my husband got to thinking back and have came to a conclusion. right after we gave her the first dose of heartworm medicine last month , she became very sick,weak and couldn't breath well at all. the blood test she took last month at the vets showed she had no worms. but, I now think that was wrong.
we took her to the vet and she was nursed back to life. they told us she was anemic and had too many chemicals in her body from the dog dip and frontline. we took her home & we nursed her along and she was doing great. she & I played fetch wednesday morning. she was happy.
I gave her the heartworm medicine about 10 a.m. and about 2 hours later I checked on her and she was having very labored breathing. she was lying down & had urinated on her self. her eyes were glazed & she couldn't stand up. she died shortly there after.
I buried her in the back yard. I want to get a little tombstone made to mark her grave. she was a loving & very smart rottweiler.
We will miss her a great deal!
Thanks to everyone for your advice.
sincerely, mary bonefas

ticks on dog

Dear MaryLou48:
My heart goes out to you. I just posted that my 17 year old dog died a few weeks ago. My husband built an oak box to bury him and we are going to place something permanent on his grave. His buddy, rocky, is buried on the other side of the pine tree in our yard.
I am so sorry. You did everything you could for your dog. My dog died after I carried him outside to go to the bathroom. When carrying him inside he went limp. I called my husband. His breathing was labored and his eyes glazed and he died shortly after but he was very old and very ill.
Believe me if someone tells you to get another dog, dog's can't be replaced. It took us a while when our Sebrina died to adopt another dog. There is a big empty space as each one has their own personality. Take your time and grieve. You will know when or if you are ready for another dog. Take care. Big HUGS!

Sorry to hear

I am sorry to hear about Angie. Rest asure that she is in a better place now. Doggy Heaven. My family and I feel your pain.

I know that this is too early to talk about but have thought maybe of checking her medical records at the vet. The vet may have given the wrong dosage on the heartworm med.
It is just a thought to check out.

ticks

I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. We lost one of our Labs to Lyme disease a few years ago and another dog to hereditary heart disease, and it still hurts when we think about them. When the time is right, a new puppy will find it's way into your heart like ours did. Take care.
Nancy
