Default Thinking about adopting

I am thinking about rescuing a Chi, and am going to meet her tomorrow! (also very excited in case you can't tell)

The thing is she in the process of heartworm treatment. She is done with the shots, and is waiting for her next test to see if the treatment was effective in getting rid of the heartworms, or will need another round of injections.

Has anyone else rescued a dog that has gone through this? And are there any long term effects that you think I should consider before adopting?

I've done a ton of reading about long term effects of heart worms, but was wondering if anyone on here had actually gone through it, and had any practical advice for me?

Thanks, Tracie

I know this older but wondering how the meeting went. Did you bring her home?

I don't have any experience with the heartworms but I think the shelter vet is the best person to ask. They should tell you all the facts about it and any future treatment needed.
