Just seems strange to me that within minutes of receiving these 2 shots this happened and I told him so. He told me to contact any of the Vets in our area for a 2nd opinion, he knows them all well and would be happy to discuss it with them. Good old boy system??? You bet it is so I won't be wasting my time.

Chica will not be going for her last round of heart worm treatment and she will NEVER go to this Vet again. Heart worm treatment is a horrible thing to put them through, especially a senior dog. I will be putting her on heartguard and buying a boot for her paw and she will live happily ever after snoozing her days away in my lap. Sorry for the long comment but I'm sorta pissed off.
Well... Of course you are. You love your dog and it must be very frustrating and painful to see her unable to use her leg.
I'd be very upset too.
