Proheart 6, an innovative heartworm preventative for dogs, is now available at vaccination clinics across DFW through Low Cost Pet Vax. Protect your pet from heartworms this summer at an affordable price with one convenient Proheart 6 shot - an injectable that lasts 6 months.
Most heartworm preventatives require pet owners to remember to give monthly tablets to their dogs. One skipped tablet can mean the difference between a dog becoming infected with heartworms, and living a healthy heartworm-free life.
Now, Proheart 6, which is much more convenient and competitively priced with monthly preventatives, is available to save pet owners the worry and hassle of a monthly tablet. The injectable can be given on-site at any one of the 25+ Low Cost Pet Vax clinics across the Dallas-Fort Worth area after a negative heartworm test result.
Proheart 6 offers an easy and affordable way to protect dogs from heartworms this summer, which are spread by mosquitoes.
“It’s very easy, safe, and affordable to prevent heartworms,” says Dr Rodney Munsell of Low Cost Pet Vax, “But they’re incredibly expensive, dangerous and difficult to treat once your dog has them.”
Texas ranks 4th in the nation for most heartworm positive dogs - and that’s just the ones that are diagnosed, according to the American Heartworm Society. According to AHS’ survey in 2016, heartworm cases are on the rise, with a reported increase of 21.7% of heartworm-positive dogs per clinic. Half of clinics named failure to give preventatives and skipped doses as factors for this rise in heartworm disease.
“We hope that we can spread more information about heartworm disease and how big a problem it is in Texas,” said Dr Karen Munsell. “Many people aren’t aware of how common it is here, and how important keeping your dog on preventative is - especially during the summer.”
The injectable preventative lasts 6 months, after which Low Cost Pet Vax sends out automated reminders by text and email to make sure pet owners come back and keep their dog on the convenient prevention.
About Low Cost Pet Vax: Low Cost Pet Vax was started in March, 2016 by Dr Rod Munsell. He and his wife, Dr Karen Munsell wanted to provide vaccinations at affordable prices, and inform pet owners across the Dallas Fort Worth area about pet health care and the importance of protecting their pets with vaccinations. They now offer Proheart 6 along with affordable vaccinations, microchipping, and flea & tick preventative across Texas.
