Melvin started his Heart Worm treatment last week and has had one shot of three as part of his slow kill treatment. This can be pretty terrible for the body but is necessary to kill off the worms living in his body. Unfortunately Melvin wasn't on preventative prior to joining the Treat Team and has to go through this process. Mike stepped up for Melvin to accompany him through his journey to a happy healthy life with no guarantee Melvin's little body would be able to push through. Today Melvin isn't doing too hot. He is on his way to the ER in Grand Rapids, he is very lethargic with blood in his urine and drool. I know Mike and his family have fallen in love in the little "tail wager" and are very uneasy about seeing Melvin like this. So please keep them in your thoughts and if you would like, please support Mike & Melvin in Melvin's journey to recovery.
* Melvin has passed, he was an incredibly beautiful little man. Thanks for everyone who has supported him. His funds will be going towards all his ER bills.
