I have adopted a pet, a beagle 6 years old. I have also learn that he has heartworm. I have started him on his medicine from the vet. Is there anything else I can do to help this dog. I guess I really don't understand this worm. What does it look like, is there anything else that I can do to get this dog passed this disease sooner. He is a beagle a very good dog. I think he is having breathing problems, he panths all the time. I afraid I may have got him when the disease is in its worst stated. Can you please help me?
