More HWF Testimonials
Greeting's from Louisiana,
This is my Golden Retriever Roch. He's the bigger dog in the pictures. The smaller dog is our cavalier spaniel named Josie May. Roch was diagnosed with heartworms two years ago. He was 10 years old at the time and our vet recommended that we do not do the traditional treatment because he stood a chance of not living through it. Instead, with the recommendation of our vet, we started a regimen of doxycline every six months that was suppose to maybe slow the progression of the heartworms. I was devastated and really stuck in a hard place. I knew the treatment option we choose would still ultimately result in my boy (Roch) dying of heartworms but I was too scared to put him through the harsh traditional treatment. We continued with this treatment for the last two years. I have been slowly watching my dog dwindle away. His hair started falling and becoming dry and brittle. His abdomen was swollen and full of fluid and he hacked all the time. His spine was even starting to protrude noticeably. I knew the heartworms were taking their toll on my sweet baby and there was nothing I could do. About 11 weeks ago I went out of town for business and when I came back and walked in the house there was my little girl Josie and my wife to greet me but there was no Roch. I looked in my wife's eyes and my heart sank. I started freaking and running around the house screaming for my Roch. I didn't even give my wife time to tell me what was wrong. He was lying in the extra room dazed and almost unable to lift his head. I tried lifting him and he would fall back down. My wife told me that this all started earlier that day but didn't want to tell me until I got home because she knows how much our animals means to us. The next morning I took him to our vet who told us that he potentially had a stroke from a piece worm lodging in a vessel or that it was from inflammation around his brain, which apparently can be caused by heartworms. There really wasn't much we could do. We were sent home with some steroids to reduce the inflammation. That moment is when I decided there has to be something out there that can help. Deep inside I truly thought that it was wishful thinking but couldn't live with myself for not trying. Heartworm Free was actually the first website I stumbled upon. After reading everything on it along with the testimonials I said what the heck it's worth a try. The reason I am writing this is because today made the 9 week mark that my boy has been on the treatment. He was tested yesterday for the microfilaria and he was NEGATIVE!!!!!! I can't explain what that means to us. Not only did he test negative for the microfilaria but he has regained his weight, he doesn't hack anymore, his fur feels like it did when he was a puppy and he is a happy, loving life dog again. This medicine is a miracle! I know that he isn't done with the regimen but he is on his way to success. Sorry that my story was so long but I really wanted you guys to realize what our animals mean to us and what you guys have done for Roch, Josie, my wife and myself. Please, please feel free to post this as a testimonial wherever you would like. Truly thank you for soo much!
Rescued an 18 month old who had kennel cough and a positive test for heartworm. Found the HWF product through a friend as the regular treatment while quicker seemed inhumane if it could be avoided. Decided to take a chance and follow the protocol for our new dog. He's just tested negative for heartworm and we couldn't be happier! Thank you,
Just wanted to give you an update on Minook. I've got just under 3 weeks left on his four month treatment and everything has gone well. I took him in
for his 9 week microfilaria check and it came back negative. My vet, who's been pretty skeptical of the treatment did a 180 when he couldn't find any
microfilaria. It's so important that anybody using this treatment get themselves fully educated on heartworms and how the treatment works. When I
booked the 9 week appt I told them it was to get Minook tested for microfilaria. When I showed up, I said I was there to have Minook tested for
microfilaria. When I saw the vet, I told him I was there to have Minook tested for microfilaria. He drew blood and here's how the rest of it went:
He put a drop of blood on a tester, waited a minute, and then shook his head, set it in front of me and said, "Red line".
"What does the red line mean?"
"It means the heartworms are still there."
"I know they're still there. They're supposed to be still there. Does this test detect microfilaria???"
"No, it tests for the pathogens given off by the heartworms."
"I'm here to get Minook tested for MICROFILARIA (dips*&t!). Test him for microfilaria!"
He took the rest of the blood sample, put it under a microscope, and came back a few minutes later completely blank faced and kinda muttered, "I didn't find any."
"Thank you! That means the treatment's working. Got it?"
His attitude completely changed and his interest is definitely piqued. He said that even though the first test came back positive, the worms could be dead and decaying.
Anyway, my point here is that if I had just looked at that first test without knowing it was the wrong test, I would've taken the vets word for it, done the unthinkable, and scheduled Minook to get shot up with arsenic. I would've abandoned the treatment even though it was working. I'm sure most of the people using HWF are doing so because they're educated, or educating themselves, but it's definitely something you don't want to overlook. Best Regards,
