Has anyone had a dog that has been diagnosed with lungworm ? My 6 year old beagle Duke is being treated for it right now. Last season this dog could run for from daylight until dark with ease . This season he could only run for approximately 3 hrs before he would be breathing extremely heavy and could no longer run. If this dog was at home you would never say there was anything wrong with him as he would jump over your head and he is also eating fine. He was treated with interceptor @ double the normal dose on Oct 25 and he is due for a regular dose on nov 25 . I tried him in the woods again this past sunday and although he did show some major improvement he still seemed to have breathing problems but not until after approximately 6 hours of hunting. If anyone has any info on this it would be greatly appreciated. How long should it take for him to be back to normal if he did infact have lungworm?

I said the same thing this mornin lol

I know it may be a little late, but my brother had two dogs that were diagnosed with large heart. The two dogs couldn't walk the length of them selves. To the point all dogs that run and made for running have large hearts for more breath. After two years of $5000.00 in meds, turns out the dogs had lung worm. Brother was not pleased. They were so far gone the worms had created cavitys in the lungs. Just a few weeks ago he had to put a dog down. So please get your dogs checked out it could save your dogs life.
