Work phone call with bad news.
Paco has Heartworm.
He'll be staying at the Dog hospital for the next few days in a controlled, motionless, quiet, environment.
After that, he'll need to remain motionless (Ha!) for an extended period of time at home. Paco is an incredibly active dog.
I think I'll need to find a surrogate home for Toby for a short period of time-- perhaps a visit to his doggy grandparents and cousin "running stupid" Max? (Max is a lab. He's a lovely dog, but not the brightest dog in the pack.)
I stopped giving them heartworm treatment when the weather was cool-- but the first frost was a few weeks away. Clearly this was a bad choice.
Have you ever dealt with this? Any advice?
