Thanks for the update. Your new dog is lucky to have you. It could have been ignorance on the previous owners - considering they fed her Gravy Train. These treatments won't be covered but they will be cleared up so are not a chronic disease, but you may want to consider pet insurance - there are some threads on that to help deflect future costs. Also if these bills are coming at a wrong time in January with all the other bills, if I were you I would ask about a payment plan with the vet. For pet health insurance some policies cover the annual check up and heartguard so that helps on the regular costs. Whip worms can make a dog miserable, my Husky had them once. Fortunately heartguard plus now has that preventative in - so you won't have to worry about them in the future.
