Why I Choose ProHeart 6

See why Dr. Bronz chooses ProHeart 6 for her own dogs and her patients.

The ProHeart 6 Difference

6 Months 1 Dose

ProHeart® 6 (moxidectin) is a twice-yearly injectable heartworm disease preventative. It’s the only preventative that provides six months of continuous protection against heartworm disease with a single veterinary-administered dose.

With a unique mode of action (MOA), ProHeart 6 provides sustained concentrations for six months, enabling:

Control for the veterinary practice

  • Client cannot forget to administer monthly doses.
  • The only sustained-release heartworm disease preventative that eliminates concerns about compliance for six months at a time.

Convenience for the dog owner

  • The client knows the dog is protected—but doesn’t need to administer heartworm disease preventative.

Maintain the health of the patient and the practice

  • Twice-yearly visits help monitor the patient’s health.
  • Regular wellness visits can help strengthen the practice’s bond with the client and patient.1
  • Parasiticide purchases remain within the practice’s pharmacy.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: PROHEART 6 should be used in healthy dogs. Do not administer to sick, debilitated, underweight dogs or dogs that have a history of weight loss. Prior to administration, PROHEART 6 certified veterinarians should continue to assess patient health through a medical history, physical examination and if deemed appropriate, diagnostic testing. Continue to use caution when administering PROHEART 6 concurrently with vaccinations. 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 as per the product label. In people, avoid PROHEART 6 contact with eyes. If contact with the eyes occurs, rinse thoroughly with water for 15 minutes and seek medical attention immediately. PROHEART 6 is available only to veterinarians through a restricted distribution program. Only certified veterinarians and staff can administer it.
