Home / NEWS & MEDIA / Zoetis Encourages Dog Owners to Have a Heart to Heart with their Veterinarian about Heartworm Prevention During American Heart Month
ProHeart® 6 Provides Dogs with Convenient, Safe and Assured Protection from Heartworm Disease
PARSIPPANY, N.J., February 20, 2019 – February is American Heart Month, which inspires people to think about their own heart health, as well as the health of their family members and their pets. Heartworm disease, a serious health threat to dogs1, is on the rise, with veterinarians reporting a 21 percent increase in the average number of cases across the nation.2 Fortunately, heartworm disease is preventable, and ProHeart® 6 (moxidectin) is the only heartworm product in the U.S. that ensures six months of compliance for prevention of heartworm disease with just one shot.
“American Heart Month is the perfect time for dog owners to think about their pets’ health and start a conversation with their veterinarians about heartworm prevention. Heartworm disease has been found in all 50 states and is a threat all year long – not just during the spring and summer months3,” said Claire Walther, DVM, Veterinary Specialty Team, Zoetis Petcare. “ProHeart 6 simplifies heartworm disease protection with just two doses a year from a trusted veterinarian, ensuring prevention compliance by eliminating the chance for missed monthly doses.”
It only takes one bite from an infected mosquito to spread heartworm disease; therefore, consistent, on-time prevention all year round is the best way to help keep dogs safe. ProHeart 6, which is available for dogs six months of age and older and is administered by a veterinarian, provides pet owners with peace of mind for six months. Before a dog can start or switch to a heartworm preventative like ProHeart 6, it’s important for a veterinarian to first test for heartworm disease.

About ProHeart 6 ProHeart 6 is a veterinarian-administered injectable parasiticide for dogs that provides six months of heartworm disease prevention, as well as treatment for common hookworm infections (Ancylostoma caninum and Uncinaria stenocephala) existing at the time of administration. Just one injection protects dogs against heartworm disease for six full months, eliminating the need for monthly dosing.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION ProHeart 6 should be used in healthy dogs. Do not administer to sick, debilitated, underweight dogs or dogs with a history of weight loss. Prior to administration, veterinarians should assess patient health. Use caution when administering ProHeart 6 with vaccines. Adverse events, including anaphylaxis, have been reported following the concomitant use of ProHeart 6 and vaccines. In some cases, anaphylactic reactions have resulted in death. Use with caution in dogs with pre-existing or uncontrolled allergic disease (food allergy, atopy or flea allergy dermatitis). Dogs receiving ProHeart 6 should be tested for existing heartworms. In people, avoid ProHeart 6 contact with eyes; if contact occurs, rinse with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention immediately. Certification is required before veterinarians and staff administer ProHeart 6. See full Prescribing Information or call 1-888-ZOETIS1 (963-8471).
