Bonnie Bee is a heartworm survivor! She is also sweet as can be. Lucky for Bonnie, her heartworm infection was detected with a routine heartworm test screening, before she developed symptoms.
This handsome guy survived surgery for a twisted stomach (gastric dilation and volvulus, or "bloat") about 8 months ago, and did it all with a heart arrythmia called atrial fibrillation. A few days ago, his owners noticed something was suddenly not right once again, and they came right in to have him checked out. He was restless, vomited, and just wasn't himself. It turns out he developed an unusual condition called a colonic torsion- this time his colon had become displaced and twisted instead of his stomach! In addition, he still had a heart arrythmia. Lance's loving owners weren't ready to say goodbye to their lovely boy, though, and he was rushed to surgery. Once again, Lance pulled through. In fact, the very next day this big guy was pulling our techs down the hall!! He's a great dog and we are so glad his attentive owners have him home with them tonight.
