Heartworm vaccination


I used to vaccinate my dogs with the proheart 6 for the last 4 years . This year I saw on the net, by accidental , that this vaccine has been issue many problems and concerns with dogs' health. After reading in depth, I saw that some people don't vaccine at all against this heart worm, especially if they live in an area which has no infected cases.

I live in Barrie,Ontario, and was wondering if anyone knows about the incidents here , did Barrie has the heart worm cases recently, do you vaccine your dogs, should I do it or not? I am not so thrilled to do it, especially after reading some sites in regards to this issue.

Thank you in advanced.

Here is a link but it is a little outdated.


I have also heard about this heartworm med not being so great for dogs. Is there any others your vet can recommend?

Thank you

Thanks for the reply. He suggested but they all seem the same. I am just trying to find out if there were lots of incidents here in Barrie.
