  • All around good tablet

    By on

    Our vet highly recommended this tablet for our Boxer, and he has been on it for year now & it has really worked. His latest checkup produced neg results for heartworms, and living in the country, our Boxer has not shown any signs of those intestinal worms either! This was our first time to purchase this tablet thru Chewy. The process is a bit longer to receive the meds, but the savings was well worth it. We know now, for the next order, to start about a week sooner. We highly recommend Chewy for purchasing all of your pet’s food, treats, toys, and now, their meds! We have happy & healthy pets in part to Chewy & their products!

  • Amazed they ate them

    By on

    I had used Interceptor years ago. Then they stopped carrying it locally so I switched to other products. They used to be a fairly large chewable tablet that smelled good. The new ones are twice the size, don’t smell like food, and just don’t look all that appetizing. I didn’t think the dogs would voluntarily eat them. I was wrong. Put it in their dishes with dinner and they didn’t even hesitate to scarf them down.

  • Protect your dog with Interceptor Plus

    By on

    Our vet recommended Interceptor for our Chocolate Lab for heartworm prevention and we knew we needed to protect our boy from heartworms so we bought the first 6 months from the Vet at almost twice the price. Chewy handled everything to get our prescription from the vet and filled our order quickly. Now we have 6 more months of protection!

  • Very Safe and Effective

    By on

    My Akita has been taking this heartworm preventative for 8 years with no adverse reactions. There was a time when a veterinarian prescribed a new heartworm preventative telling me it was safe and took care of eliminating a few other types of parasites. After one dose of that "new" preventative, she had such a severe reaction that we almost lost her. The ONLY preventative I will ever give my dogs is INTERCEPTOR PLUS.

  • Monthly Preventative

    By on

    My vet recommended this product to us, so this is what we use. We know that it works in the sense that my pup is healthy and worm-free, and the fact that she will willingly eat these treat-like pills makes giving her one each month super easy. :)

    Great product that my dog tolerates well. Since she tends to swallow tablet whole, I cut it into a few pieces because it is recommenced that the dog chew it. First time using Chewy Pharmacy and very pleased with experience.

  • InterceptorPlus Chewable Tablets

    By on

    My dog has grown up so that I needed to change the pounds to a higher dosage tablet. My dog loves this and thinks it’s a treat. Such a nice service that I can give my Bet’s name and info and Chewy calls them to get an OK. Mailed right to my door! Great service by Chewy!!!

  • Good coverage

    By on

    This is a new product for us. We have always used Heartguard Plus. Purchased because of the additional worm type coverage. We live in an area with a lot of "wild" critters and wanted more protection for our dog. Hopefully, it will do the trick.

  • Very Happy!!

    By on

    I received this in a few days. Much cheaper than my vet! When you have multiple dogs, it really helps to be able to save some money on products that you use every month
