From Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue in New York:
We lost Biff this morning (10/5/07). He did not survive heartworm treatment. Regrettably, his heartworm infestation was very severe. He had an embolism. He was actually doing better in the hospital...was off the oxygen, off the IV, eating, drinking and walking. They took him out to the bathroom and when they put him back in his kennel, he collapsed and died before they could even do anything. That's what happens with an embolism ... it is over in a matter of seconds.
Biff was much loved and well cared for in his final days. He was in a kennel in the hospital ward which is right in the main room so he could be closely monitored. The girls there really liked him and paid a lot of attention to him. Poor little man...it's days like today that we really hate people who neglect their animals. A simple heartworm preventative once a month and Biff would have been spared all of his suffering.
Many thanks to Biff's foster mom for everything she did to try to save this guy. He really was a sweet boy and he touched our hearts more than words can say. We are all very saddened that he did not make it.
