    The only treatment I will use for my dog.

    By on

    This is the only heart worm treatment that I will use. I had to try a different one a few years ago when this was not available and my dog was sensitive to it. I also do not like the treatments that last for months at a time. My dog is least sensitive to this and I am more comfortable with a month to month treatment. I used this with my last dog and my current 14 year old pup.

    Interceptor for heart worm control

    By on

    My dog had an unfavorable reaction to Heartguard, so the vet suggested Interceptor which has different ingredients. Yeah, all went well, no reaction.

    Interceptor works for my hounds, they are chewable and must taste pretty decent because they chew them up with vigor.
