Saturday Luna went in for her last vaccines & Koda came alone. He wasn't due for anything, just wanted to go. We had talked to the vet before about the 6 month heart worm treatment shot called ProHeart 6. I had just been waiting for Koda to stop growing. The vet tech pointed out that the shot has a weight range. So we decided to go with it & did the 20lb to 50lb range, Koda is 37lbs & they didn't think he would get over 50lbs within 6 months. As we're checking out Koda begins to scream, I'm still having nightmares about it. He flops down on the floor & goes into Anaphylaxis shock. The quick response of the vet & the whole staff is the only thing that saved his life. I'm so gratefully to them all, and counting myself lucky that we where not at home. If we had been at home he would not have made it
Koda spent all day Saturday at the vet & was then transferred to the animal emergency clinic for overnight observation.
I'm so happy to report that Koda is doing well. We are now out of the scary 24 hour period. While Koda is not 100% better yet he is doing great, eating & drinking & even playing with Luna.

I'm thinking about having a "fund raiser" auction on Outbid as soon as I can organize everything
If anyone is looking for anything art related just let me know. I can also offer a few small commissions like ACEOs, paintings, small sculptures like Pixie Dragons, and small plush dragons.
Koda & Luna
Now a waring to all Pet owner:
I knew a little about the ProHeart 6 before we thought about giving it to Koda, and some of you may know that I've worked as a vet tech. Koda has never had a reaction to any type of drug, vaccine, or anything before. If he had I would not have done the ProHeart 6 & the vet would not have recommended it. With that said I do wish I would have read more about the drug, knowing what I know now, aside from Koda's reaction I would not have given it to him. It was pulled from the market in 2004 because it was killing dogs & making them sick. It was rereleased in 2008, with no changes to the drug or formal, just a new small warning label. Now when it was rereleased in 2008 it was marketed as a "new" drug even though nothing had changed. And when I worked as a vet tech we where never told about any warning or side effects only that it could not be used on dogs over 8 years old & not to use it on dogs with known allergies. Again Koda has no allergies at all. The drug was original created not as a heart worm preventive but an aggressive treatment for dogs that already had heart worms. The side effect was it kept dogs heart worm free for about 6 months, so the name was changed & the formula a very little & it was marketed as a heart worm preventative. Now I don't know if this is true or not but employes at PetsMart said that the drug was suppose to be pulled again this year. The scary thing is some dogs do fine the first time or even the 3rd, then it's the 4th time that makes them sick or kills them. My grandmother has her dog on the treatment, but not anymore. So please warning anyone you know that has dogs, or at least let them know the risks involved.
