The Heart Truth- Red Dress

Go deeper than the pink, go red. Go deeper than the breast, go to the heart.

Heart disease is the NUMBER ONE killer of women in the USA. Eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, and cultivate social relationships (make friends!); these will help save your heart. I know because I have CAD, coronary artery disease.

Nanna 10, Heartworms 0

Nanna just had her yearly checkup. The good news- she tested NEGATIVE for heartworms!
Several years ago she tested positive and, due to her size, the vet decided not to try a treatment on her. He suggested giving her a preventative so she wouldn't get more heartworms. However, her chances were iffy. The worms could die and pass out of her body or one could travel to her lungs and kill her. Lucky for me the former happened.
Give your dog heartworm preventatives! It's easy and worth the cost of the pills- as I well know.
Pictures tomorrow!
