Pretty Addison




I just loves this photo collage that Addison's foster daddy made for her. She really needs the love and snuggles right now, because she's having a tough time of it! She went to the V-E-T a few days ago because she was coughing up foamy stuff. Her foster sissy had just had pneumonia, and her foster parents were worried she had it. Well, the good news was that it wasn't pneumonia. The bad news was that she had heartworms -- which we knew already, but they were LOTS worse than we thought they were. They're so bad that her heart has swollen up bigger to fit them all in there, and her lungs have had to shrink to make room for them. No wonder it's hard for her to breathe!!

Luckily Addison has LBR and foster parents who love her and will get her the care she needs. We'll have to be real careful with her heartworm treatment, because it's going to be EXTRA hard on her, but she'll pull through it. But this is why it's SO SO SO important for doggies to get heartworm preventative every single month!! If Addison hadn't ended up with LBR, she probably would've died. One simple pill a month can prevent problems like this. I know all your peeps are smart enough to already give you your pills, but make sure your friends and family know how important it is too!
