Dog Heartworm Preventatives at Creekside Animal Hospital


Heartworm in the Woodlands

Potentially deadly heartworm disease is a threat no matter where you live. Just one bite from an infected mosquito can transmit larvae to your dog that can eventually cause severe damage—and even death. Make sure your pet is protected!

Heartgard Plus® (ivermectin/pyrantel)

 They are real-beef monthly chews that prevent heartworm disease in dogs and puppies 6 weeks of age or older. 

  • Safe for puppies as young as 6 weeks
  • Prevents heartworm disease
  • Treats & controls 3 species of hookworms
  • Treats & controls 2 species of roundworms
  • Comes in a tasty real-beef chew that dogs love
  • Offers convenient, monthly dosing that’s easy to coordinate with other monthly medications

Proheart 12® (moxidectin)

One shot of ProHeart 12 provides protection for your dog all year long.

  • When life gets busy, it can be tough to stay on top of monthly dosing—and many pet owners do forget.
  •  Dogs may vomit or spit out the chews, which means the pet owner has to re-dose.
  • Some dogs refuse to eat “treat-like” preventatives
