Gambler is due to have his Heartworm Blood Test on his Birthday. Since his Birthday was May 13th I took him to work with me on May 17th and had his Heartworm Blood Test drawn. He was a good boy and laid right down and let Dr. Mary draw his blood with no problems, no movement, nothing.
Dr. Mary please hit my vein on the first try.
Thanks mom hold me tight, make me feel safe.
Hug me up mom, are we about done?
Yippie, my favorite time….a treat!
Ahhhh crap, time to go back to my kennel.
Gamblers Heartworm test was negative! I also ran a mini panel on the blood to check for diabetes, check his kidney and liver functions which were are normal. He is now good to go and take his monthly Heartworm preventive for the next year. Don’t forget to have your pooches heartworm test done and get them on preventive. Heartworm is a nasty disease easier to prevent then to treat.
Have a great holiday weekend.
