Producer responds to FDA recall of ProHeart 6
Fort Dodge Animal, the producer of the milbemycin containing Proheart® 6, says it will voluntarily comply with the recent FDA’s request to recall Proheart® 6, the only injectable heartworm preventive on the market. Currently, the reasons for many of the sometimes fatal side effects of the product remain unclear.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will create an independent advisory panel to further investigate the numbers of adverse reactions associated with the product before the product can be marketed again.

The company says it has “concerns about how the agency interpreted these complex data.” The company adds in a prepared statement that it “fully supports the initiation of this review process, and will work closely with FDA to provide any necessary information for the panel to make a fair and accurate assessment of these data.” Fort Dodge stands behind the safety of its product.

Dr. Stephen Sundlof, director of FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, says, “This was the first product administered once every six months, which has some good advantages for compliance. We are started seeing some adverse reactions that we did not see in the preclinical studies.”

“We don’t understand why this drug is causing some of these problems,” Sundlof says. `Until we can understand that better and develop ways to reduce adverse events, we thought it is important to not expose any more dogs to this product.”

A novel herpesvirus associated with serious eye problems in a great horned owlmembers
Owls are not the classical patients seen in veterinary practices, but they are occasionally seen and need to be examined and treated if possible. An adult great‐horned owl (Bubo virginianus; GHOW) presented with a history of recurrent corneal ulceration of the right eye (OD). Findings included ulcerative superficial keratitis, proliferative conjunctivitis, and iris pigmentary changes. Finally, a novel herpesvirus was identified that caused the signs and was critical to choose the appropriate theray.
