December 25, 1995 - July 16,
sick six days
after the ProHeart 6 shot with
severe diarrhea. Our vet put him on
prescription dog food and told me
that "it must have been something he ate".
I asked my vet twice before he
administered the ProHeart 6 shot
what the side effects were.
The only answer he gave me both times I
asked was "sometimes there is a little swelling
at the injection site"--that's it.
Over weeks he would just lay around,
not eat, continued stomach problems
and would not walk with me
(as we use to walk every morning).
Duker developed IMHA and
died 11 days after diagnosis. The first
Dear Doctor letter came out 6 days after Duker died.
No amount of money
Fort Dodge offered me would have been enough; my thoughts
to warn others before their dogs had to suffer and die.
I was not
willing to take anything to stop me from spreading the
word, to watch out
on ProHeart 6.

Thanks for continuing to spread the word!

We miss your slobbery smoochies
was taken on a beautiful spring day, when he was
a healthy baby and smiling.
May our boy rest in peace, and don't worry baby,
even though ours was tragic and
you're now in a safe place,
we will fight to keep others safe
from becoming a victim to that awful product.
receiving his injection on May 23, 2002 ...
him on the 28th at 8:30 a.m., in his dogloo. Sleeping
like he always did, like an angel.
We want this posted so others who aren't aware of
Proheart 6 and their side effects may see actual pictures
and read the stories. Mommy and Daddy love you and
miss you and you are always in our hearts."
With everlasting love, Mommy and Daddy. email@example.com

She was a very smart,
beautiful German Shepherd and it is still difficult
to accept her loss. I'm sorry to say that our Banfield
Vet does not seem to see a connection to her death
and ProHeart 6
.On 6-12-03 Addie went to
the vet at Banfield Clinic for her yearly physical (including
bloodwork). She was given a clean bill of health and received
her yearly vaccinations along with a ProHeart 6 injection
after being told how great it was. Her last one was given
in June of 2002. Everything seemed fine until the morning
of 6-15-03. Addie asked to go out. My son Brian went out
with her and within a short time, he noticed her lay down
and her breathing was labored. She died in a matter of minutes
and there was nothing he could have done for her. We all
asked how could this be? She was very healthy according
to the Banfield vet! We arranged for a necropsy hoping to
get some answers. Cause of death is listed as hemorrhage
into abdomen and blood between the heart and sac surrounding
the heart-due to unknown causes.
Fort. Dodge and the Banfield
vet tell me this would not be a result of the ProHeart 6.
I don't agree.
I filed a complaint with
Banfield Corporate office in October '03. I have never received
a response from them.
I talk to everyone that will listen about what happened
to Addie and ask them not to use this injection. I have
referred many to your website and hope they make the right
choice and also spread the word. Thanks for all the hard
work and time you devote to this cause.
