    I posted this here because I can't embed a video in the health section, not sure if I'm the only one who would find this disturbing, gross, and fascinating.

    Mods, feel free to move this to another section is this is not okay. Thanks!

    I'm not watching it, not at work. LOL. I'm grossed out by the thought, but I'm also curious, so I'll have to watch it at home.

    Glad I just gave her Keeva her Heartgard yesterday. *gag*

    So cool! But also sad, for $4 they could've prevented it.

    It isn't always preventable. There were plenty of dogs in my old area that ended up with heartworms while on Heartgard and other medications.

    Thanks for sharing the video. It's sad, but neat.
