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 Tablets 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. This product is also available for dogs in a chewable tablet.

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.

    I've always used topical treatments both for my pets growing up then on my own. 5 years later, after religiously using topicals for my dogs, we had a flea infestation. Now this treats heart worms but we use it in conjunction with another oral tablet. My dogs are so picky I didn't think they'd touch it but boy was I wrong! They eat it like it's a treat, amazing. I haven't had any issues since PLUS it treats intestinal parasites which is a huge plus living in the warm weather. It was super easy and convenient ordering online too. My vet and I both love Chewy, haha.

  • Great product, great price

    By on

    My usual place to buy heartworm meds was out of stock, so I decided to try the new pharmacy section of Chewy.com. I already use Chewy.com for various other doggy needs and have always been happy with their service. The prescription authorization went more smoothly than any other place I've ordered from! I have a MDR1 mutant/mutant dog so I prefer to use Interceptor for heartworm protection. Because I use Bravecto for fleas and ticks, I don't want, or need, any flea or tick med in my dogs' heartworm doses. "Plain" Interceptor is the perfect choice.

  • Good stuff

    By on

    I've used this product for a long time on my golden retrievers. My boys never had any issues with it. I prefer this instead of the new type that has a flea/tick preventer.

  • convenient ordering and no medical issues

    By on

    no reaction after administering, no medical issues, standard price at Chewy still better than others when they have sales and convenient to set up on autopay so that I'll always have a supply when needed. Easy to provide prescription from vet.

    The tablets came in a timely manner and appear to be the real thing. I had been warned that it was possible to get black market items online but I am happy to say I feel much better about ordering online and especially from Chewy.

  • All my dog can take

    By on

    This product is the only one that doesn't upset my dogs stomach. The price is significantly lower than the other online pharmacy, which had this on backorder. As per usual this was delivered promptly. My only negative is this was delivered on a soft package and the box was crushed.

  • Very fast prescription fill for Guess

    By on

    My first prescription fill with Chewy and I am IMPRESSED. I have used Interceptor for a few years and have had good results . I prefer this one over the interceptor plus due to I find this one is easier to give since the dogs view it as more palatable. As well as I don't have a tapeworm issue in my region. So this meets my needs easily and safer.

  • excellent alternative

    By on

    One of my pets has an adverse reaction to Heartgard, and it started causing eye problems for her. I like the price of this med (cheaper), and she and her sister seem ok with taking it.
