12 months protection from heartworm disease... in a single dose.
Have you ever forgotten to give a heartworm dose?
You're not alone! We've calculated that, on average, people buying heartworm tablets
from us give only 9 monthly tablets every year. That means a lot of dogs are going
unprotected for many months of the year.
Heartworm is a serious and life-threatening disease.
If you're not giving 12 doses per year, then perhaps you should consider the
once-a-year ProHeart injection - and forget monthly tablets forever.
ProHeart SR-12 injection uses sustained-release technology to protect your dog for a full 12 months.
ProHeart SR-12 has been proven safe and effective. The injection is quick,
easy and costs no more than the tablets that you're using now.
You can arrange to have the injection done at the same time as your dog's annual
health check and vaccination. Or you can make an appointment and have it done at any time
(there's no consultation fee charged if you come in just for a ProHeart injection).
- If you haven't given your dog heartworm tablets before, or have been irregular with your heartworm tablets for a long time, then we may recommend a heartworm test before giving the ProHeart injection.
- The injection only covers heartworm so you will also need to give an intestinal worm tablet every 3 months.
- Suitable for all dog breeds from 6 months of age.
If given before 9 months of age, ProHeart injection will provide 9 months protection
(instead of 12) due to the high growth rate of puppies at this age.
From 9 months of age it provides a full year's protection.

- If you're giving monthly heartworm tablets and miss just one dose, then you should give the next dose as soon as you remember. But you should then phone us for advice on what to do next to ensure that your dog doesn't become infected.
