Bacteria aren’t the only organisms developing resistance to today’s pharmaceuticals. In this episode of the Clinician’s Brief Partner Podcast, heartworm disease research scientist Molly Savadelis, PhD, talks with host Beth Molleson, DVM, about the changing landscape of heartworm disease and what recommendations veterinarians should be making to keep their patients protected from one of the companion animals’ most infamous parasites.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Use PROHEART 6 in dogs 6 months of age or older and PROHEART 12 in dogs 12 months of age or older. Do not administer to dogs that are sick, debilitated, underweight, have a history of weight loss, or to those previously found to be hypersensitive to the drug. Hypersensitivity reactions may occur in some dogs when PROHEART is administered alone or with vaccines. Anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions can result in death and should be treated immediately with the same measures used to treat hypersensitivity reactions to vaccines and other injectable products. Reported side effects in clinical trials included vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea, anorexia, and hypersensitivity reactions. People should avoid inhalation, contact with eyes, or accidental self-injection. Certification is required before veterinarians and staff administer these products. See full Prescribing Information at ProHeart6PI.com and ProHeart12PI.com.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: Use with caution in dogs with a history of seizures. Simparica Trio contains sarolaner, a member of the isoxazoline class, which has been associated with neurologic adverse reactions in dogs with or without a history of neurologic disorders. The most frequently reported adverse reactions in clinical trials were vomiting and diarrhea. See full Prescribing Information at SimparicaTrioPI.com.
