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 flavor tabs are 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 tablet form, so you can give it to your pet as a tasty treat, or add it to her food for a boost of flavor.

Uses

For prevention of heartworm disease and the removal of adult roundworm and hookworm infections.

Possible Side Effects

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

Drug & Food Interactions

Do not give Interceptor to your pet if your pet is already taking an alternate heartworm medication. Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your pet is taking before starting this medication.

Precautions

Do not use in pets less than four weeks of age and less than two pounds of body weight. Prior to initiation of this medication, pets should be tested for existing heartworm infections.

  • Heartworm that is 2-10lbs

    I know it is said that it is ok to give the same dose that one gives to a 25lb dog to a 4lb dog but that sure makes me uncomfortable. I was thrilled to find a pill that is for 2-10lbs and that is why I chose Interceptor.
