We have a new heartworm preventative called Proheart 6. This prevention is an injection that is given every six months by a veterinarian. This injection is given instead of the monthly prevention. At the time of the first injection we will do a heartworm check, and another heartworm check at the time of the second injection. This is because of the change in heartworm prevention. It will be once a year after this.
If Proheart 6 sounds familiar, it’s because we previously used this prevention until 2004. It was taken off the market for additional testing and study of side effects. The incident of side effects was found to be less than those for any other injection on the market.
Please call to if you have any questions or to make an appointment.
