More than 20 species of mosquitoes are known to spread heartworm, and they can carry the infected larvae for miles, even transmitting the disease from wild animals (such as coyotes) to pets.
Year round heartworm protection is very important for all dogs in Tennessee. Brentwood Veterinary Clinic has recently started carrying ProHeart6, which has been on the market for several years.
ProHeart6 is a heartworm protection injection that lasts 6 months. ProHeart6 can be given to healthy dogs over 6 months old. It is great for dogs that are difficult to give pills or for owners that have a hard time remembering giving a heartworm prevention pill every month.
Please call to schedule an appointment to see if ProHeart6 is a good heartworm prevention option for your dog.
