Guys, a while back I learned that the heartworm vaccination had been pulled off the market there in the USA due to a high number of adverse reactions and deaths.
The reason I ask is that my guys have always been given a monthly heartworm tablet due to the fact that here in Australia, and particularly my area we have mosquitos all year round & heartworm is a constant threat. When I first heard about this vaccination I thought "you beauty" and was all geared up in my head to have my lot done when their annual vaccinations came due.
Now of course, I have decided it isn't worth the risk. Australia can be a little slow at pulling nasty drugs off the market, so I'm more inclined to watch what is happening there in the USA.
Anyway, I wonder if anybody has any updated news on this? I am about 99.99% sure I am going to give this a big miss at the moment, but wouldn't mind a last minute update if anybody has any.
