RALEIGH, N.C. — Health concerns have forced a popular heartworm preventative for dogs to be recalled.
WRAL reported months ago on complaints about
injections. Various vets reported a few problems, but the Food and Drug Administration requested the recall after fielding more than 5,000 complaints from dog owners.
Officials blamed Proheart 6 for side effects in their dogs that ranged from nausea to seizures to death.
