Hi firesmom, I'm sorry to hear that your dog is ill. Our sister site PetSide has some good information about heartworm~

There's also a good symptom checker there, if you should even need it again.

Firesmom, I just wanted to check in and see what the vet was able to tell you. If it's heartworm, the important thing now is just to start treatment for him. If you have trouble remembering her heartworm preventative, maybe set a calendar reminder for yourself in your phone, Outlook, etc. I hope everything turns out well.
