Description

Your furry friend must have a current heartworm test result on file with your veterinarian in order to be prescribed heartworm medication. Please visit your veterinarian to have this test performed annually to protect your four-legged friend. Interceptor Plus is a monthly, broad-spectrum parasiticide prescribed by your vet to help prevent heartworm disease. Plus, it treats and controls adult roundworm, adult hookworm, adult whipworm and adult tapeworm. It comes in a tasty, chewable tablet, making dosing easy for you and your pet.

The chewables 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 no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.

  • Be careful about the expiration date

    By on

    Be careful about the expiration date of the medicine. Bought 6 doses for my dog, but received the medicine which will expire within 5 months. And the pharmacist placed all the blames on you, acting not reliable and not caring for your dog.

  • Good stuff at a reasonable price

    By on

    This was recommended to me by my vet over Hart Guard and when buying a 6 month's supply or a year's supply the cost per monthly application is more than reasonable. Oh yeah and one more thing. It works!
