I'm so sorry. Thread worm is a tough one that hasn't been that common for quite a while, until recently. I think our weird weather is bringing them back this year. You really did do all that you could. Once the brain, liver, and kidneys are involved there isn't anything that can be done to stop the disease that they cause. I hope that things look up for you soon...
