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.

    By on

    Milbemycin oxime and praziquantel. Yup, that’s what it is this pill my daddies give me once a month. I really don’t know what that stuff is but my daddies told me is to to prevent heart worm. And to tell you the truth, I know a little bit about heart worm cause before I was adopted by my daddies and came from Puerto Rico to live in Boca Raton Florida I heard that a lot of my cousin dogs had heart worm and that was not good. Not good at all. Just think about it: worms. And your heart? No way. Keep them out. Have your mommies or daddies get you this medicine and give it to you once a month. And stay healthy. And tell them to buy it at chewy.com cause it’s a very good price and then your mommies Milbemycin oxime and praziquantel. Yup, that’s what it is this pill my daddies give me once a month.

But I like it more that I take this pill which is soft and chewy (haha) and I don’t get heart worm. Love from Boca Raton from Bori! … more

  • Used interceptor for years and still my first choice!

    By on

    I’ve used Interceptor for years on all my dogs. I’ve always had Collie breeds and don’t use ivermectin. All my dogs have loved Interceptor. They think if it as a treat and I’ve never had any issues. Plus I love that Chewy delivers it right to my house.

  • Keep a Healthy dog

    By on

    Used Interceptor since my dog was a puppy and have had no problem giving it to her once a month. She chews the tablet like it was a treat. I want to keep my dog safe rather than sorry and prevent heart worm.

  • Great Price, Great Customer Service, and Great Delivery

    By on

    I was a little worried to order my dog's heartworm meds online. However, I was super happy when Chewy called the vet, got the prescription, filled the order, and delivered it quickly. Just Great!

  • Great product.. Box shipped to me crushed :(

    By on

    I received my order quickly, however the box was completely crushed as were some of the chewable tablets. Not happy about that. My dog loves these and it's a great way to give her the heart worm treatment

  • Better than Banfield

    By on

    Much cheaper and more reliable than banfield's add-on to their puppy plan. Go the chewy route for this rather than getting it through banfield!

  • Great Product

    By on

    I have used Interceptor Plus for years and have been extremely happy with it. It's the only one I know of that takes care of Whip Worms along with all the other nasties. I have never ordered it through Chewy before since my vet took care of getting it for me. Imagine my surprise when I checked the price for it on Chewy and found I could get it for so much less than I had been paying the vet!! Thank you, Chewy, for making this wonderful product so much more affordable.

  • Taste must not be that great

    By on

    We are changing to this product due to availability. I thought that since these are chew-able that my dog would like it. Not. He spit it out. I had to put it in a treat or he would not touch it. So much for ease of use. I can't yet comment on how well it works since we just started using it.
