With all of the medical records/exams back from Susie, we recognized that we should try and figure out the cause of how there was something getting into her blood and her heart. With a necropsy report of a dog with similar symptoms to Susie, we saw some pretty amazing stuff!
We set out to model how we thought the worms could be getting into the dog's blood and heart!
After a great discussion, we came to an agreement that the only possible way the worms could end up in the blood and the heart was because of a mosquito bite! From here, we came to consensus!
This sick dog unit will culminate the end of the year. Please know that due to the sensitivity with COVID-19 at this time, we launched our unit with a discussion regarding the importance of scientific process when it comes to understanding illness transmission, treatment, and prevention. Stay well, everyone.
