  1. My furbaby is a rescue, has significant scaring from being burned, was very depressed didn’t even have wiggly puppy butt. We’ve bonded, she had a wiggly puppy butt, hiking, agility, car rides, shopping etc. Now she is under vets care for heart worm. She’s getting depressed licking her paws and low crying sound. My fear is we will lose all the gains she has made. Do you have any recommendations for low energy mental stimulating ideas, ways I can interact with her that doesn’t get her heart rate up? Will she have the resiliencey needed to reenter social situations, or even come out of the depression again?
