Health Information: Olivia Jane is up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed, and microchipped. She tested positive for heartworms and is receiving a gentle protocol that gradually clears the heartworm infection without the need for excessive confinement. Most dogs will test negative for heartworms within a year using this method. rnrnOlivia Jane had many broken and infected teeth - 4 were removed on May 8th and she seems more comfortable though the rest of her teeth will need to be monitored - she will possibly need more extractions in the future. Her skin itchiness is improving - she has been receiving weekly medicated baths.
