Interceptor Plus may be offered to the dog by hand or added 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 no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the doses have been lost, redosing is recommended.

  • Works for roundworms too!

    By on

    Got this product for my dog to use as a monthly heartworm preventive. He happily chewed it up as a treat and had no visible issues with having taken it. The very next day, he had a larger than usual poop with some huge roundworms (well, they seemed huge because he is a chihuahua/dachshund mix so he's relatively tiny). It clearly made his gut an inhospitable environment for the worms that we didn't even know he had! He has been a much more active and perky dog since then, which we think is probably related to no longer having wriggling worms in his gut. Will continue to use as recommended for the heartworms, but the de-worming was a nice side bonus!

  • My dog got hookworm

    By on

    I had been giving Interceptor Plus monthly for the past 9 months and yet my dog tested positive for hookworm.I have since learned that there are 3 types of hookworm...this product only protects against 1. I wanted to know which type of hookworm she got but I was told by my vet that there is no test to determine species. Bottom line: we do not know whether it protects against any hookworm. Before you buy, please google "parasite prevalence map" and drill down to your county to see if you need more hookworm protection. If so, buy Heartgard.

    This is what my baby’s vet recommended. I chose Chewys because of the discount and auto delivery. My Duke chewed it up like it was a treat. I was very impressed and he had no side effects. This was s great purchase.

  • This works great

    By on

    This is what my fur baby has been taking for a long time. She gobbles it like it’s candy. Much higher at my vet. I love Chewy & so glad to see they’re selling these products now. Too bad my vet will not write a script for her so I can order it. Why would he? He’s losing money! Wish I could find a vet that would write a script for her but none in my area will do it.

    The Chewy pharmacy made it easy. They contacted our vet for us to confirm the Rx. No running around on our part. Our pet had been to the vet already, Chewy took care of the rest.

  • This Product Seems to Work Well

    My little hyper Jack Russell Terrier has been taking Interceptor Plus for a year. She is healthy and has not been bothered with hearth worms or any other parasites.

  • The box was destroyed

    By on

    It's her medicine. However, very disappointed in how badly the box was, all bent out of shape, smashed, and laying open. The price was good, and the pills are intact. Guess that's all that matters.

  • Best stuff ever!

    By on

    This takes care of all your worries about heart worm, tapeworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms !! My vet said this is the best, and my dog has proven it! If your dog runs on a ranch or mountain and sometimes gets into other animal’s poop or even occasionally gets into a gut pile or carcasses from hunters or winter kill, they get nasty worms! This monthly chewable gets rid of them and prevents them!! Seems expensive, but you get SIX DOSES per box. A must for adventurous dogs.
