We have 2 golden retrievers one is 7 yrs. and the other is 4 yrs. anyway we took them to the vet to catch up on their shots and they are ok except for that the 7 yrs old has a mild case of hearworms and the 4 yrs. old still has stage 2 (I think it goes up to stage 5) It being soo expensive we asked around and my dh has a couple of friends who go hunting and recommended some kind of medicine that they use on their dogs when they go hunting you give it to them once a month and it suppose to kill the hearworms. My 4 yrs old has had this since a year ago (we are behind on their shots as mention above) anyway we have been using this medicine for a year now and now the vet is saying he is still in stage 2 heartworm ( I was hoping the medicine helped this far) I guess it has for it still being stage 2 on the heartworms. but my real question is should we get another vet opinion???
It is going to cost $600.00 each dog :(

I would suggest spending the money on treatment vice another opinion. The dogs need to be treated.

This site is wonderful in explaining your situation, perhaps a bit more clear than your Vet. I read it over thoroughly and can not find fault . If you have anymore questions please ask.
