It was on the off-chance... I asked them to do his heartworm test so we could get him started on medicine. The test is a two-fold test... it also tests for Lyme, and he came up positive. I then remembered that I had found a tick on Nolli's head a couple of months earlier.
So... now, every once in awhile... he does get a flare-up. And it makes me so sad... I put him on a regiment of 1/2 a baby aspirin twice a day for about a week. Sometimes less... if he perks back up. He's a great pill taker... and he understands that baby aspirin will make him feel better.Last night he was so adorable... DH was sitting here at the desk working, I was sitting on the sofa near by and Nolli came up on the sofa next to me and snuggled in while we talked and watched the news. He is so sweet... and I can't help but fall more crazy-in-love with this dog everyday! It's also wonderful to see the bond that has developed with DH and Nolli... for someone who really doesn't like dogs... he's nutso for this one now! (Nolli does have a good appetite, he had his dinner with 1/2 cup of cooked broccoli florets, and a nice piece of my steak and some baked potatoe with my special dressing last night... He's Not Spoiled!)
Thanks for reading... be blessed!
