Proheart 6 is an injectable medication that is used in healthy dogs 6 months of age and older to prevent heartworm disease continuously for six months. The benefits of this type of heartworm treatment are that you would no longer have to remember to give monthly heartworm pills. You would also have the reassurance that your dog receives all of the medication, unlike a pill that can be spit out! Use of Proheart 6 requires twice yearly injections to fully protect your dog from heartworm infections. It is important to discuss your dog's health history with your veterinarian at every visit to determine if Proheart 6 is right for your dog. As with all medications, side effects from Proheart 6 are possible. Call us today at (507) 765-2117 for more information on this exciting way to prevent heartworm infestations in your dog.
