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.

  • Parasite protection

    By on

    Living in rural Montana we had concerns regarding the “leftover bits” from coyote, fox and raptor kills. Our Weimaraners have keen noses and never fail to pick up these morsels on our outings. Typically we are able to get our dogs to “leave it”, however I’m sure there are instances where one or more snacks are devoured without our knowledge. Our vet recommended the Interceptor Plus to keep our dogs free of parasites under these conditions. A year and a half living with these conditions and our dogs remain healthy and happy... and all three of our pups love the taste.

  • Works great as protection in the VA/WV area

    By on

    I know a lot of products are no longer effective in certain areas due to the local population developing resistance. This still works great in my area against fleas and ticks and I love that it also helps prevent mosquito bites. My dogs don't love the way it tastes or take it like a treat, but we usually just cut it up and add it to a meal (they get kibble mixed with canned) and they eat it all just fine. We have not had any issues with skin reactions and our dogs have been using this for years. We never find any ticks or fleas on them, even after visiting family in the country surrounded by woods. This is a great product for our needs.

  • Best price for Interceptor Plus

    By on

    We are diligent about giving both of our labradors heartworm tables every month of the year. It gets very expensive as we typically we were buying them at the vet. I could not believe how much I saved. I was able to easily order and because of the lower price, get enough for 6 months at a time! This is the way to go. It's the same product and Chewy always verifies the Rx with your vet. GO CHEWY!!

  • Interceptor Plus chewable heartworm preventative

    By on

    Thank you for offering a different version of heartworm preventative other than heartguard. My Aussie cannot take ivermectin. These seem to work very well and thank you for offering a great price and contacting my Vet for the prescription for me.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Great product

    By on

    My dog has only taken one so far but he ate it right up. I like how it was in a treat form so I did not have to mix it up with anything else. The price was great on this product and Chewy is an awesome company!!!! I will definitely only order from Chewy!

  • Good Product

    By on

    I love that it protects against more things, but 3 out of the 4 dogs that I have will not take it. I have tried everything to get them to eat it. So I will be going back to the original Interceptor, that is smaller in size and all 4 willing take.

  • 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.
