Fort Dodge Animal Health Announces Reintroduction of ProHeart 6 to the U.S. Veterinary Market
Date:6/5/2008

is potential deadly disease. It is marketed in major countries (Australia, the Mediterranean regions of Europe and Japan) where heartworm infection is endemic and a serious health risk for dogs. ProHeart products have achieved substantial usage in all of these countries, and are the market leader in both Australia and Italy.

ProHeart 6 is the only option for heartworm prevention in the United States that helps ensure dogs are continuously protected against this potentially fatal disease for six months following a single dose. The American Heartworm Society (AHS) estimates as many as 27 million dogs in the United States are not currently on a preventative -- putting a staggering number of dogs at risk for heartworm disease. Based on a survey conducted by the AHS in 2005, the organization also reports approximately 250,000 pets in the United States tested positive for heartworm infection in 2004, which represents an increase of nearly 5 percent over the number of pets that tested positive in 2001.

Because ProHeart 6 is being returned to the U.S. veterinary market following a voluntary recall, Fort Dodge will implement a post-marketing surveillance initiative based on programs used to monitor the safety of human drugs. The effort will include comprehensive veterinarian training, pet owner education and consent forms, and specific requirements for the purchase and administration of ProHeart 6. This program will also allow the Company to gather additional product data and maintain active communication with veterinarians and the CVM.

Veterinarians who wish to purchase ProHeart 6 will be required to participate in a Web-based training program scheduled for Thursday, June 12, at 1 p.m. EDT and register with Fort Dodge Animal Health. To register, veterinarians should go to http://www.vetsymposium.com/proheart6 and follow the directions provided on the site. If a veterinarian is unable to a
