I have bad news.......Sonja (my foster) has tested positive for heartworm The vet said that she has both adults and babies, meaning that they have already gone through a whole cycle. She has been living with them for an estimate of 8 to 12 months. He also said that could be a factor in her kidney failure as well. My poor girl. I already spoke to the rescue and they will definately be providing the funding for her treatment. I still have vacation days left that I haven't used yet so I will be using them to stay with Sonja during the first step of the treatment. I hope she pulls through okay.
