Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I was looking at the list of things the clinic we're going to for heartworm tests does and they also list a heartworm/lyme/erlichia test. Does anyone know what the erlichia is for? I've never heard of this and the vet we used before has never mentioned it either, I think im just going to stick with the regular heartworm test but maybe that would be better?

Ok thanks! I dont know much about the tests and shots we have only ever donw the standard heartworm test, rabies, and then the 5 in 1 or 7 in 1 shots. Slowly oearning about all this stuff kind of throws me off and gets confusing. I have my mother in my ear complaining that they never used to do heartworm tests or use heartworm stuff and the dogs were fine, trying to explain that not knowing their background I feel the need to do it just doesnt seem to compute with her. I got them as strays from chicago do you think it would be best to get the extra tests? I dont think theres much of a tick problem there and we havent had problems by me.

That's true, way back we never new about heartworm. It is a problem now and I think you should stick to guns and take care of your puppies the way you think is best! Moms are always going to be moms, give her a kiss and tell her love her.

My dog got erlicha and he about died from it. I am happy to say that a lot of ups and downs and a thousand dollars later he was just fine.
