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.

Please contact your veterinarian if the following adverse reactions occur: vomiting, diarrhea, depression/lethargy, ataxia, anorexia, convulsions, weakness, and salvation.

INTERCEPTOR PLUS may be offered to the dog by hand or added to a small amount of dog food. 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.

    Best medicine for my pups!

    By on

    My German mix and corgi mix have both been on this medicine that our vet recommended for over a year now and they both have never had any issues. I love how easy it is to give to them as well with the chewables because my dogs just eat it straight up with no peanut butter or anything! Highly recommended by me and by my vet.

    Seamless Process

    By on

    I purchased the Interceptor Plus Chewable Tablets for my Dog based on my Vets recommendation. This product requires a prescription so I provided the name of my Vet and Chewy reached out to them for approval, within a day or two I had my flea and tick protection. Doesn't get much simpler than that. Thus far we are happy with the results.

    Viable Alternative to Merck Tri-Heart Plus

    By on

    One of our dogs [Ollie] didn't tolerate Merck Tri-Heart Plus [vomited after taking]. Vet recommended Interceptor Plus as an alternative and Ollie does tolerate this [no adverse effect].

    Interceptor review

    By on

    My dog does not like the interceptor i purchaed at all. I have to mix it in with my dogs food, in order for her to even eat it. Otherwise it would not even be touched by my dog.

    No News is Good News

    By on

    I have had my dog since she was 12 weeks old and she has always been on Interceptor. She hasn't had any intestinal worms and tested negative for heartworm when we moved across state lines and needed a health certificate for her to fly. She also eats these tablets like they're treats, so I have zero complaints!

    Good product

    By on

    I like this because it does nothing for fleas. It is only for worms. I already use something for fleas and don’t want to use an internal flea product. The only problem is my dog doesn’t like the taste and they are so large. I know other people use this and their dog likes the taste, mine is more picky I guess.

    New dose due 3/30

    By on

    Haven’t given the first dose of Interceptor Plus yet..not due until 3/30. It was recommended by our vet due to the fact that it covers “whip worms” as well. He was on the normal Interceptor at one time and did well on it.

    Had to wrap in cheese

    By on

    I had to trick my dog into eating this by wrapping it up with a piece of cheese. Hopefully next month she will eat it on its own.
