I am very sorry to hear about Ava. I was wondering if your vet will be running additional tests to confirm the diagnosis as recommended by the American Heartworm Society...
“Once a dog tests positive on an antigen test, the diagnosis should be confirmed with an additional—and different—test. Because the treatment regimen for heartworm is both expensive and complex, your veterinarian will want to be absolutely sure that treatment is necessary.”
