While we were at lunch the vet left a message on the answer phone. She’s done her initial analysis and his heartworm problem is more advanced than they thought. Crap! They’ve decided they need to treat him in a couple of stages instead of the one so he’s getting his first injection today, stopping in for observation overnight and we can pick him up tomorrow. Then after 30 days he’ll get another injection and repeat the process. Other than that he is apparently doing well.
5.34pm called the vets. Genghis is still hanging in there. He’s had his first injection and is very groggy as they had to sedate him.
