    Thank goodness I found the "NO" Plus Interceptor

    By on

    Excellent product! I used this for years until Interceptor introduced the "Plus" version. Now my vet only carries the Plus version and my dogs cannot tolerate it. I have tried every heart worm medicine on the market and they all made my dogs sick - vomiting, diarrhea. Finally, I decided to check out Chewy.com and low and behold, I found my favorite heart worm medicine. I have given them their first dose without any problems whatsoever! Thank you Chewy and thank you Interceptor. Hallelujah!!!
