I couldn't think of a section for this, but she's my family, my lil baby. Grace is my 2 year old Pom. She's hyper and has always had a harsh raspy cough. My stepmom keeps saying HEART WORMS HEARTWORMS take her to the vet. I personally am thinking it's collapsed trachea. My cairn terrier mix gets it all the time. I think grace gets it all the time because she runs wide open all day. I am taking her to the vet for her rabies vaccination next week. I was going to bring it up then. I can't afford heartworm treatment, I can get her on preventatives when I get money for her to be tested. Please no preaching about don't get a dog if you can't afford vet care. I'm a teen with no job, and the dog was bough and they said they'd help with vaccinations. I've paid every vet bill. She's a puppy mill puppy. We found that out this year. She has a few minor health issues. She's pretty good though. Any opinions.
