My chihuahua has been found. She was in the garage the whole time! In the Texas heat, not a good thing! She has had a horrible cough since her return so I took her to the vet yesterday. Two hundred and sixty-two dollars later I found out she has heartworms. She needs an ultrasound of her heart, which will run anywhere from four to six hundred and then start treatment for another seven hundred and fifty! Yikes! I emailed a vet at the Human Society to see it they will treat it for less. I would much rather do that and make a nice donation to them. She is on an antibiotic for some lung inflammation and an oral steroid. They called it in to a regular pharmacy and the great people there flavored both like chicken! She is not a fan, but she has to take both for three weeks!
