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 and adult whipworm. 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.

    Just so you know there are 2 different types of Interceptor... I didn't know this and got the wrong one... I would've thought that since they need the vets name to check the prescription they would've contacted me about the change from last time...

    No Side Effects

    I had tried Interceptor Plus and Sentinel with my GSD puppy both products caused vomiting. I decided to try regular Interceptor and it did not cause vomiting. What a relief! Will buy this product going forward.

    Ease of ordering

    By on

    Ordering couldn't have been easier. Didn't have a prescription and Chewy handled reaching out to my vet for the prescription. From the time I placed the order to the time of arrival was about a week. Can't be happier with service and price.

    My 1st Pharmacy Order From Chewy

    By on

    Ordering was easy with a written script from my veterinarian. Just fill out the on-line form, mail in the script, then the purchase arrives by mail in just a few days. I've used Interceptor for quite a while now, so having it on Auto-ship from Chewy is a nice convenience. Great pricing, too!

    Heart worm prevention for dogs with allergies

    By on

    When my pet's vet suggested this brand over another brand because she said my dog's allergies would have kicked in because of the other medication and she would bite off her fur, I was thrilled to learn of this medication.

    Skeptical At First...

    By on Top 250 Contributor

    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.
