Buddy is one happy guy as he tested negative for the presence of microfilariae early in July indicating that his injections to treat heart-worm were successful! The last step in his treatment plan will be in January where Buddy will have a follow up appointment for an Antigen test to screen for microfilarie. Exercise restrictions are a thing of the past and Buddy able to be the Golden he was intended to be…he enjoys running crazy 8’s in the yard with diligence, swimming, and taking long walks. Buddy is a strong boy and we’re working on managing this on walks as he likes to dart in one direction pulling you behind. Buddy has been receptive to training of all sorts and is a quick learner, aiming to please; he has really adjusted well to his environment and routine and continues to be one Big Sweet Happy Boy!
