We are now offering Proheart, which is a simple, easy injection that can offer either a full six or twelve months of Heartworm prevention. 

A common misconception regarding heartworm disease is that it is a southern disease. Recently, we have had multiple cases of dogs with heartworm disease that were born and raised in our area. We always strive to provide the best care for your pets and that is why we have decided to offer this easy alternative to a once-a-month preventative. Proheart can ensure that your dog is provided with constant protection from heartworm disease. 

If you prefer a monthly preventative, our practice recommends Simparica Trio, which protects your dog from heartworm, fleas, and ticks in one monthly chew!

Whether it is the Proheart injection or a once-a-month preventative medication, heartworm prevention is imperative to the health of your dog. The doctors at Ringwood Animal Hospital always recommend year-round heartworm preventative medication.
