Melissa, why do you have two open requests?

You said (on the other request) that they saw hookworms. Heart worms are diagnosed by a blood test.

On the other request it says that you wanted a phone call. Is that true?

Did you have a chance to read my comments on your other request? The ones about Panacur and Metronidazole?
