• My dog is about to start heartworm treatment. How much exercise would be too much for her during the treatment, and how much is not enough? She's generally a very mellow dog but likes her walks. Any advice?

    Slow gentle leash walks are usually the best. If you notice her sitting down a lot, it's time to bring her home and let here rest. In general, be careful taking any dog on a walk farther than you would be willing to carry her home from.
