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. Iverhart Plus Chewable Tablets are prescribed to help protect your pet from heartworm disease, which can cause tiredness, decreased appetite and, eventually, heart failure in dogs. These easy-to-feed tablets may also help control two common intestinal parasites, roundworms and hookworms. Iverhart Plus chewables help provide safe and effective protection each month, and come in a pork liver-flavored chewable—so they're easy to give to your dog as a tasty treat.

Uses

Used to prevent heartworm disease by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae for a month (30 days) after infection and for the treatment and control of roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms.

Possible Side Effects

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

Drug & Food Interactions

Talk to your veterinarian about any other drugs your pet is taking before starting this medication.

    A vet recommended this as a less expensive monthly heartworm preventative. We have been giving it to our two dogs for probably 5 years. It is a solid pill, but we just wrap it in a small piece of cheese and are good to go. It works well, and is priced right. It is great that Chewy pharmacy offers it!
