My Rotttweiler is 3 years old and is super hyper, she has heart worms and came from an animal shelter how on earth do i take care of her??????????
This is a tricky situation because normally you’d want to get her started on some basic training and make sure she gets plenty of exercise – as both of these things will help to focus her energy and calm her down.
However, if your dog has heartworms I’m assuming that she’s being treated for that, and part of the treatment is the requirement for the dog to rest and stay quiet rather than run around. I would definitely discuss this situation with your veterinarian to make sure everything is being done that needs to be done.
I’d recommend using a crate to contain her for a good part of the time, if she’s been in a rescue center she will likely be familiar with being crated or confined to a pet which will help. Give her plenty of sturdy chew toys (see my Tough Dog Toys for a great selection of these) so that she has something to use up her energy on.
You may want to do some research on heartworm and you can find lots of info. here…. Heartworm Prevention and Treatment. The recovery process is a long haul but your dog is lucky to be one of the ones who is getting better.
Best of luck.
