Certification is required prior to the purchase and administration of ProHeart® 6 (moxidectin) and ProHeart® 12 (moxidectin) in your clinic. Certification involves a one-time commitment to watch a video providing product education. Veterinary technicians are encouraged to certify so that they can also administer ProHeart 6 and ProHeart 12.

The Certification video will take approximately 20 minutes. While there is no Certification quiz, you will be prompted at the end of the video to acknowledge your participation. You must agree that you understand 6 key points of product use before you are fully certified to order and use product.



In order to complete this Certification, please confirm your understanding of the 6 points below covered in the Certification video.

ProHeart 6 is indicated for healthy dogs at least 6 months of age or older. ProHeart 12 is indicated for healthy dogs at least 12 months of age or older.

Prior to administration, the health of the patient should be assessed by a thorough medical history, physical examination and diagnostic testing as indicated.
