Coco update

On Wednesday and Thursday, this week, Coco received her last two shots of her heart worm treatment.

The shot itself did not take long to give, but the prep included shaving a bit of her fur.

As I have plenty of beard left, I have told Coco that I will donate part of my beard, in case her fur doesn't grow back.

The ride from Fort Worth (where her Vet is) to home was uneventful. We were a bit nervous on both the days as these shots are serious stuff. Luckily all went well at the clinic.

Coco was nervous too, as it is her nature still. But, she was a great patient and cooperated with us and the doctor and techs.

Coco will not be permitted to exert herself too much for the next 30 days. After that she should be able to go on longer walks and such.

Coco will be retested in February 2019 to make sure there are not any more worms.

Looking forward to our fur baby being heartworm free.
