Hello. Thanks for writing in.
How much blood is she coughing up?
Is she on heartworm prevention every month?
What color are her gums?
If you press on her abdomen from both sides, is she painful or uncomfortable?
Can we give her water? We are trying to find an emergency vet close to us. Not looking so good. Everywhere we call is closed. My husband and I both feel it is probably heart worms. She eats but doesn't gain weight. That is why we just got the pill. She is very active and still is even right now. She is wagging her tail and now is back up to walking around.
If she does have heartworms and she is already at this point is there anything a vet will be able to do to save her? We don't have a lot of money to spend.
