Puppy Pixies needed, please

Our 'puppy' Buster needs pixies. And so does my wallet!
In a nutshell - when I went to work 5 days a week (I used to work 3-12hour night shifts), DH took over a lot of things, including taking the animals to the vet.
I had no reason to question anything he did, but I guess I should have. I didn't know he wasn't getting heart worm treatment for the dogs. And, yes, you guessed it - Buster has heartworms. He needs to start treatment soon. IT's a 3 month process, with medication given almost daily, plus 3 injections (months 2 and 3, with injections #2 and #3 being given on back to back days). He will need to be monitored for an additional 3 months after treatment ends. All to the tune of $1300 +/-. Oh, and the treatment can kill him. The worms will kill him, but the treatment might.
DH feels awful. He just didn't think it was a big deal - he never had any animals with heartworms and yet never treated any of them with preventative, so figured he could skip it. I'm not necessarily angry, but I'm not feeling happy with him right now.
And my poor Buster! He's just battled Pancreatitis and now this.

Oh my...many many pixies for you and Buster! I know we have issues remembering to always give the dose but our vet truly pushes the preventive care & meds. Please know I will be praying for your furbaby...healthy happy furbabies are very important to me.

Poor baby. But he's still young so his chances should be good, right? Sending lots and lots of good thoughts : pixie:

Our Golden Retriever had heartworms when she was young and had treatment. It was tough on her but she made it through and lived a long life.

I'm sorry your puppy is having to go through this. We have a patient at the clinic I work at that is about to start his own heartworm treatment. I hope that everything goes well for Buster!
