    Default Proheart 6

    At the last vet check-up I started the dogs on a new heartworm medication on the market called ProHeart 6. It is an injectable solution and lasts 6 months (no more remembering to give pills). As I understood it it is a brand new med and was wondering if anyone else uses this and if so, any good or bad experiences?

    Thanks,

    Clay

    Have been using it for about two years. I like it. Still Heartworm free. Dogs that is.

    Have had three dogs on it since it first came out. My vet suggested it since I hate to do a once a month chewable. JB

    Thought it was recalled a few years ago.. what's changed since it's back on the market?

    moxidectine injectable is definitely not "new", the adverse events seemed to have declined since it's reintroduction to the market in 2008

    I agree, it's not a new med. my vet told me it was pulled years back bc it was causing seizures. Then back on market without any modifications. I'm not using it but have family that does on their dog and no known issues.

    I would have to look at the vet bill when it arrives but I didn't think it was much more than a 6 month supply of chewables. My vet said it was "new" so I took her word for it not knowing that it was recalled and then reintroduced.

    It was taken off the market a few years back after being blamed for some complications. With that said I have given it to my last 2 dogs with absolutely no problems and better yet no heart worms . Moxidectin isn't new, same med that's in advantage multi. Alot of vets around the MS river have started recommending moxidectin after a alot of dogs tested positive after taking heartgard (ivermectin)

    We have been using it for several years.The recall was related to some herding breeds.No dog has tested positive on it.Several have that insist on HG.
