Instructions
Recommended Dosage

Remove only one chewable at a time from the foil-backed blister card. Return the card with the remaining chewables to its box to protect the product from light. Because most dogs find HEARTGARD Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) palatable, the product can be offered to the dog by hand. Alternatively, it may be added intact to a small amount of dog food. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes after administration to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.

Storage Instructions

Store between 68 F - 77 F (20 C - 25 C). Excursions between 59 F - 86 F (15 C - 30 C) are permitted. Protect product from light.

FAQ

How Do HEARTGARD® Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) Chewables Work?

HEARTGARD® Plus Chewables contain two active ingredients, ivermectin and pyrantel. The ivermectin works to prevent heartworm disease by allowing the immune system to recognize and inactivate heartworm larvae before they can develop into adults.1

Does HEARTGARD® Plus only prevent Heartworm disease?

No, the pyrantel in HEARTGARD® Plus treats and controls hookworms and roundworms.1

Is there a weight or age requirement to give my dog HEARTGARD® Plus?

HEARTGARD® Plus is suitable for dogs 6 weeks of age and older. There is no minimum weight requirement to use HEARTGARD® Plus.2

How long does a dose of HEARTGARD® Plus last & how often should I treat my dog?

Even though the dose of HEARTGARD® Plus only remains in the dog for a few days, each HEARTGARD® Plus Chew works by affecting parasitic infections acquired during the previous month/30 days.2 Therefore, it is critical to ensure that your dog receives the appropriate dose of HEARTGARD® Plus each month to keep your dog protected from heartworm disease all year long.

Does HEARTGARD® Plus need to be used all year even when it is cold outside?

The American Heartworm Society recommends giving your dog year-round protection. That’s because the threat of heartworm disease doesn’t stop with dropping temperatures. Many pet owners might assume that they only need to give their dog heartworm disease preventives when it’s warm. While heartworm transmission can decrease in winter months, the risk never reaches zero. What’s more, on-again, off-again heartworm disease protection is unreliable and can leave gaps in protection that can make your dog vulnerable to heartworm disease.3

Is HEARTGARD® Plus safe?

HEARTGARD® Plus Chewables are well tolerated and have been trusted over 2 billion times.4 HEARTGARD® Plus is the #1 Vet-recommended heartworm preventive.5

For dogs over 100 pounds use the appropriate combination of these chewables.2 Each size also comes in packs containing 1, 6 or 12 monthly doses.

Can HEARTGARD® Plus be given to pregnant dogs?

HEARTGARD® Plus has shown a wide margin of safety at the recommended dose level in dogs, including pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs and puppies aged 6 or more weeks.2

How should I give HEARTGARD® Plus to my dog?

HEARTGARD® Plus can be offered to the dog by hand. Alternatively, it may be added intact to a small amount of dog food. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes after administration to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected.2

How do dogs get Hookworms and Roundworms?

Hookworm larvae can be transmitted through the skin or by ingesting larvae in contaminated soil or grass at places like the dog park. Roundworm larvae can be transmitted through a mother’s milk or by ingesting infective eggs from the soil in your backyard.6

What is heartworm disease?

Heartworm disease is an invisible, but potentially fatal threat that occurs in dogs and other animals. Heartworms (Dirofilaria immitis) are parasitic worms that are transmitted to dogs by infected mosquitoes. Microscopic larvae of heartworms develop and grow under the skin, then migrate to the blood vessels of the heart and lungs of the infected animal where they rapidly grow, becoming adults that are 5-12 inches in length.7

How do dogs get heartworms?

Dogs get heartworms by being bitten by an infected mosquito. Larvae are deposited on the skin when the infected mosquito bites, then when the infected mosquito leaves the heartworm larvae enter through the bite wound. One bite is all it takes.3

What are the signs of Heartworm disease?

Not all dogs develop noticeable symptoms. While blood tests performed by your veterinarian are the only way to confirm a diagnosis of heartworm disease in dogs, here are five warning signs that are reported in dogs with advanced heartworm disease:

  1. A persistent, dry cough is a common sign seen in dogs with heartworm disease.
  2. Lethargy and reluctance to exercise are also common signs described in dogs with heartworm disease.
  3. Some dogs have a decreased appetite and, as a result, lose weight.
  4. As heartworm disease progresses, it can lead to heart failure. You may notice that your dog's belly appears swollen from fluid in the abdomen.
  5. In the most advanced cases, dogs can develop more severe respiratory issues like rapid breathing in addition to coughing.

What is the best way to protect my dog from heartworm disease, hookworms and roundworms?

The best way to protect your dog is by giving them a broad-spectrum heartworm preventive like HEARTGARD® Plus that also kills hookworms and roundworms every month.

How can I reduce the risk of heartworm disease in my dog?

There are 3 things you can do to help reduce the risk of heartworm disease.

  1. Reduce mosquito exposure by eliminating standing water where mosquitoes can breed, avoid known mosquito habitats, and limit outdoor exposure during peak mosquito feeding times.3
  2. Use monthly preventives, like HEARTGARD® Plus, on a year-round basis to safely and effectively prevent heartworm disease by affecting the heartworm larvae before they can grow into dangerous adult heartworms.1
  3. Get Your Dog Tested Every Year. Before getting a prescription for a heartworm disease preventive, your dog must be tested for heartworms. Talk to your vet about testing options.3

Can heartworm disease be treated?

Yes, it can be treated, but heartworm disease is a serious condition that can cause heart failure, permanent damage to your pet's lungs, and even death. Treating heartworm disease is costly and complicated.7,8
