I would mention it to your vet but not expect them to remember! I have a mutant/mutant rescue collie. I'm careful about when I give her heartworm medicine to her. I don't schedule her vaccines or dentals right around the same time (just to be safe) and always remind the vet that she has issues with immodium and acepromazine. She's never had an issue with anything and hopefully never will.

The dose of ivermectin in Heartguard and other heartworm preventatives is safe for MDR1 mutants. There's no need to educate your veterinarian, they obviously already know that.

ETA: It's the higher doses used for mange that are of concern for MDR1 mutants.
