    Love The Price

    By MrsMS on Aug 13, 2021

    My vet stopped carrying this medicine and tried to sell me something new to my pet and much more expensive. This product has always worked for my 15 year old dog without noticeable side effects. I'll stick to what works and not experiment with my dog's health. Thanks for continuing to offer this product

    No ivermectin

    By Neesie on Aug 16, 2021

    Chewy is the only place I have found where I can purchase Interceptor. I use this for my dog because it has no ivermectin in it. Dogs that are collie breads, border collies, shepherds etc. should not have ivermectin because it can cause issues in their brains.

    Used this product for years

    By Dogwalker on May 5, 2020

    I have Border Collies and I'm just not comfortable giving them Heartgard. Plus, Interceptor also deworms for whipworms. I also don't want to give a heartworm prevention with an insect growth regulator when they already are treated with an adulticide. Less chemicals is always better.

    Only pills for my dog

    By Opinion02122 on Feb 24, 2020 top1000Contributor

    Mr. Fussy won't eat the chewables, so I need these pills. I have to wrap them in cheese and force them down his throat. You can't do that with the chewables. And I like Interceptor better than other brands.

    I was prepared for a fight!

    By Booneshoes on Nov 7, 2019

    I decided to try this for my 2 one year old cats. I was fully prepared to burrito them and shoved the pills down their throat and hopefully walk away with minor scratches. To my amazement, they both took the pills like they were just another treat! I was stunned and very pleasantly surprised! They can be pretty picky eaters, which made it even better!

    Pet Medication via Chewy, thumbs up!

    By Dbanks on Jul 15, 2019

    This was the first time I ordered prescription medication online. (And I threw out my coupon from Chewy, darn!!) Once I figured out the procedure, it was easy and very convenient. This med isn’t carried by my Vet office any longer but Chewy has it. I used the option of Chewy calling my Vet for the script but I did let the Vet know Chewy would be contacting them. You just place the order and they take care of the rest! Another thumbs up for Chewy!!
