From the makers of Heartgard Plus, Centragard is a broad-spectrum, monthly medication prescribed by veterinarians to help prevent heartworm and help treat and control roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms in cats. This treatment is specially formulated for cats who are seven weeks of age and older and weigh between 1.8 and 5.5 pounds. Best of all, it comes with an easy-to-use applicator, so you can apply the treatment directly to your companion’s skin without any hassle.

Proudly sourced directly from the manufacturer or their approved distributor. Guaranteed genuine and backed by the manufacturer.


Centragard is indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, and for the treatment and control of roundworms (adult and fourth stage larval Toxocara cati), hookworms (adult and fourth stage larval Ancylostoma tubaeforme; adult Ancylostoma braziliense), and tapeworms (adult Dipylidium caninum and Echinococcus multilocularis) in cats and kittens 7 weeks of age and older and 1.8 lbs or greater.

Possible Side Effects

In a well-controlled field study emesis, anorexia, lethargy, temporary clumping or spiking of the hair, or mild, transient skin reactions (itching, hair loss) were reported. When cats licked the application site after treatment, temporary excessive salivation was observed. Oral ingestion of CENTRAGARD may also result in hypersalivation, vomiting and/or lethargy. In margin of safety studies, transient neurological signs such as ataxia, disorientation, lethargy, and pupil dilation were observed in some cats. Correct application will minimize the occurrence of such events.

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your cat is taking before starting this medication.


Do not administer orally. Cats may salivate excessively and vomit if Centragard is accidentally administered orally or is ingested through licking/grooming the application site (see ANIMAL SAFETY). The safety of Centragard has not been tested in breeding, pregnant or lactating cats. The safety of Centragard has not been tested in kittens less than 7-9 weeks of age or weighing less than 1.8 lbs (0.8 kg).

What parasites does Centragard protect against? Centragard is also approved to treat and control three of the most common intestinal parasites of cats -- hookworms, roundworms, and tapeworms. It is the first, and only, product to protect against this spectrum of parasites in an easy-to-use transdermal formulation.

My cat only lives indoors. Is parasite protection necessary? Even indoor cats are at risk of exposure to these parasites. According to the American Heartworm Society, 1 in 4 cats diagnosed with heartworm disease are indoor only pets.

What is Heartworm Disease? Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease that can affect dogs, cats, and other animals. The risk of heartworms is widespread in the U.S. Heartworms are transmitted by infected mosquitoes. Mosquitoes become infected with heartworm microfilariae while taking a blood meal from an infected dog, and then can transmit the heartworms to cats. Once in the cat, heartworm larvae develop in the cat’s tissues and then migrate to the bloodstream. They reach the blood vessels of the heart and lungs in a few months.
