Aw, nuts.

We've had a few dogs with heavy worm loads take 18 months, but never longer than that. She may have just had a lot of them, unfortunately. I do also think that under-dosing her might be worth thinking about too -- I've always up-sized to the next highest tube if they're on the borderline. (Example - One of mine is about 57 pounds, just over the dividing line between the 20-55 and 55-88 pound tubes...he gets the "big boy" tube.) You can also buy the 88+ tubes and pull out the exact right dose for the weight of the dog and leave the leftovers in a pill bottle for next time, if your vet can do the calculation for you. I have a few friends with multi-dog households who do that -- they buy the giant size, and then use it to measure out exact doses based on current weight to save money.

Glad to hear updates, it's been a while. I don't stay up to date on dog health issues so I'm not real clear on what everything means that she tested for,but hoping she gets and stays better. Take care.
