I adopted a dog that was unknown to me heartworm positive. I know a little about the infection because years ago my sister's dog had them. Back then it cost her around 600 dollars to clear her dog of them. I have 1,000 dollars and am more than willing to spend it on my dog but my vet says I am lacking about 2,000 dollars. I told her that seems like overcharging (maybe I shouldn't have said that…) and she told me I should just put the dog down if I can't afford her.
Is she trying to dupe me or has heartworm treatment really gone up that drastically?
