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.

    Perfect for my boy!

    By on

    I have a 6.5lb toy poodle mix. I give it to him as a pill because he plays with his treats and the other dog in the house uses Heart Guard—he doesn’t need two doses! I’ve never cared for the size of Heart Guard, or the texture. My last dog (passed away) was never on a heart worm preventative and my vet highly recommended this product. It’s worth it!

    Perfect for small dog

    By on

    We have a 7 pound Alaskan Klee Kai mix and our vet was worried that heartgard was going to be too big and she might not eat it all. Our vet gave us Interceptor to try and our little girl eats it right up with no problems!

    I elected to have Chewy call my vet for the prescription which they did and the product was mailed within a week and received timely. I have it set up for automatic shipment. So easy.

    GREAT! but...

    By on

    we didn't order this off of chewy but we received some from our vet and I decided to write a review because this is great! I did put "but" in the headline because like others said its pretty stiff but chewable but I still gave it five stars cause of what it does. Also, one of my dogs took it as a treat yet the other dog needed it shoved down there throat so I have mixed thoughts but I'll be giving this for as long as my vet recommends.

    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.
