UPDATE: heartworm and Lymes testing now back and is negative and sure enough, his T4 is normal so he has been overfed and not appropriately exercised 🙁

So much time is spent educating people on the proper weight for Danes/dogs in our adoption / temp foster info packages and the extra burden Big Ben’s joints and heart plus lungs have been having to take on because, of all of this excess weight is upsetting. 🙁

Over $200 has been spent and gladly so as we want all of our dogs proactively/preventatively vetted – to get Big Ben back on track with proper vetting yet it should never have been this way…..
