Monk's Last Rx

Monk spent the morning at the vets and had his final heart worm treatment. Just some oral wormer and a check up by the vet.
He had his skin "hot spots" shaved and treated and his teeth checked. He needs a cleaning which will help his "UGH" breath!!! But that will be in a couple months.
Oh yes, he got his nails trimmed!
Right now he has a couple more weeks of rest, then he can return to normal activity, which I think isn't much different!!!
But he'll be able to be groomed and go on walks.

Rocky says, I'll just rest too.

Here's Monk showing you his sore toe. Not really . . . it's just a hot spot that's been shaved. He has one under his chin, on top of his head and on his right back hock.

Rocky says, "Will my zebra make it all better?"
I'm so relieved that Monk has come through his heart worm treatment so well.
He's such a blessing and gives me lots of smiles.
Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts.



  1. Aww, good for Monk is right! Know you are thankful the treatment is all over with. You sure have some sweet doggy friends!

    What an awesome header, just beautiful!

    Happy New Year!


  2. Glad Monk has made it through his treatment. We adopted a dog that had heartworm. She tested negative before she left Arkansas, but a few weeks later, my vet in Colorado discovered she was positive. What an ordeal keeping our young dog calm during the treatment. Monk looks like a pretty mellow guy, so I bet he was a good patient. I hope he recovers fully.

  3. Aw! Such a cutie, so pleased he's doing well.

  4. Oh my....what cute pooches!!! I just discovered your blog and your dog caught my eye right away....they are adorable.

  6. I'm glad that Monk is done with his treatments. They are long and involved, aren't they? He looks very contented and happy! Blessings for a wonderful New Year.
