ProHeart Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm is a very serious and potentially fatal disease.  Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes carrying infected blood from a previous host.  When the infected mosquito bites a dog who isn't on heartworm prevention, that dog will then become infected.  Heartworm can spread fast and has been found in ALL 50 states!  We regularly see an increase in frequency of infected dogs, many of whom have lived in New Hampshire their whole life.  The risk for unprotected dogs is serious and present all year long.

We know that life is busy and sometimes it may be difficult to routinely be on time with traditional oral heartworm prevention every 30 days.  For this reason, we offer ProHeart injectable heartworm prevention.  One injection of ProHeart offers a full 6 months of protection!

Heartworm prevention is safer and more affordable than treatment for infected dogs.  So if your dog doesn't like the monthly oral prevention, or you have a tendency to forget to give prevention every 30 days, then call us to find out more about the convenience that ProHeart offers.
