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. Infected pets should be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae prior to initiating treatment. Mild, transient hypersensitivity reactions manifested as labored respiration, vomiting, salivation and lethargy, have been noted in some treated pets carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.

    Great Heartworm prevention

    By on

    Living at the beach in both NC and MD we encounter lots of mosquitos. With Interceptor I need not worry. Vet checks have been great.

    Great heartworm prevention

    Although it’s a bit pricey it’s totally worth it! My dog Bruce ate it right out of my hand.

    I only use Interceptor

    By on

    My vets over the years told me to only use Interceptor on my herding dogs for HW prevention. I never have any issues.

    The pills are hidden in a chewable coating my dogs like

    By on

    I'm assuming that these pills work as my dogs have not been ill. But I'm very skeptical about preventative allopathic medicines. I am only following my Vet's strong recommendations. These pills are great, however, because the dogs easily swallow them in their edible coating.

    Always works for us

    By on

    We've been using Interceptor for a couple months now and it has kept our pup parasite free! Minus fleas and ticks that is, we use Simparica for that. We love the coverage that Interceptor has, doing everything but the above mentioned and tape worms which come from infected fleas. We used interceptor plus (which does cover tapes) the previous year but unfortunately my pup is allergic to chicken so can no longer have that added protection. She has never had any parasites while on this method of prevention though!

    Works as intended

    By on

    The medicine was easy to order and came in a good amount of time. My dog took the medicine easily and has not shown any negative effects. Overall pleased with the purchase. Chewy's prices are a little less expensive than competitors.

    No chicken!

    By on

    So glad this formula is not made with chicken, but artificial beef flavor made from pork! My poor Aussie has allergies and is severly allergic to chicken.
