FAQ

How To Give Your Dog Interceptor Plus

Interceptor Plus (milbemycin oxime/praziquantel) is a chewable tablet flavored with real chicken that you give to your dog once a month, every month. Its overall acceptability is 96.6%, which makes dosing easy.

You can give Interceptor Plus to your dog by hand or add it to a small amount of dog food. Administer the chewables in a manner that encourages your dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. If your dog normally swallows treats whole, you may break the chewables into pieces and feed them to your dog.

Make sure that your dog consumes the complete dose, and observe your pet for a few minutes after administration to ensure that no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If you suspect that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.

    Good and bad points

    By on

    I liked that this product covered more types of worms than the monthly treatment I used to give my last dog and vet recommended it. It’s great if your dog will eat it. My puppy likes the taste, I know because she will keep licking it. However, it is very small and rather hard, so I have to put it in a spoonful of peanut butter to get the medicine in her. I will probably switch back to Heartguard Plus next time since the pieces are much bigger and softer, therefore easier for pet to eat.

    Perfect for toy-small breeds

    By on

    I started using this appx. 5 years ago. First attraction was the limited weight class. I have a 7lb min pin & just wasn't comfortable using a heartworm prevention that went as high as 25lb weight class. Bonus is that it gives protection against various worms as well. It's chewable and my dog has no issue eating it. Very well tolerated too.

    ONLY HEARTWORM TREATMENT THAT TAKES CARE OF TAPE WORMS TOO

    By on

    If you dog is an outdoor dog like mine are, this is the best heart worm med for you. If your dogs catch squirrels, rabbits, groundhogs etc, they will get tapeworm. Interceptor Plus get those as well.

    She likes them

    By on

    We were having trouble getting her heart gard down her, she didn’t like them. We would chop it into little pieces tried putting peanut butter on it, but that didn’t work. The vet gave us a sample of interceptor plus and she eat it with no problem.
