Char, please be careful with that Trifexis. a local agility group near me has nothing but negative things to say about it. i can tell you of my own experience, oh, 12 years ago? my Staffy cross (in ziggy) had gotten another heart worm shot and went into seizures and had seizures for the rest of his life. that heartworm shot was recalled. i have no idea if the 2 brands are related but i can say im VERY careful of any type of vac.s and meds i give my dogs now. thanks for listening! best of luck!  :smileywavey:

In Topic: Sudden Death Of A 6 Y/o

So sorry for your loss. love your rescue story, what a silver lining!  :smilie:  but i wanted to tell you,horses rarely die from heart attacks. especially at 6. what were his bloodlines? it sounds to me like he may have had pssm. the ryr1 or i believe its called type two, will cause sudden death. and you said he had gotten some grain and exercise. dont know your horses bloodlines or history but that popped into my mind. it may also help others with similar sad cases.

humans and dogs are two different species. last i heard dogs (unaltered) are 3 times (oops, now its 7 times more likely)  more likely to get mammary cancer than humans. and unfortunately by the time you notice a lump many times it has already spread to the dogs lungs. i've dealt with mammary cancer in a dog many years ago. its painful and quick. its far better for both human and dog to just  spay or neuter. 


To answer OP question; around 6 months. and for anyone concerned about cost ASPCA is always willing to help.
