Subject: Re: [Ferret-Health-list] Pro Heart 6 ?? anyone know..

Hi Starangels,
Proheart 6 is the new heartworm product from Ft Dodge.
It is an injectable product that prevents heartworms for 6
months. It contains moxidectin, which is similiar to ivermectin.
The company has not done any work with cats or ferrets at this
time. It is a good product for dogs, but we do not know about
its use in ferrets yet.

PS Proheart has been out in Australia for a while now, so even
though it
is a new product here it has been used down under for a while.
