Heartgard Plus is a monthly preventative that treats heartworms, microfilaria, hookworms, and roundworms. It is used to kill or prevent parasitic diseases. The active ingredients in this medication are ivermectin and pyrantel pamoate. Together, these ingredients control a wide spectrum of parasites by causing neurological damage to the parasites.

For:

Dogs (6+ weeks of age, no weight requirement)

Benefits:

  • Effectively prevent heartworms
  • Treat and control roundworms & hookworms
  • Only given once a month
  • Delicious beef flavor makes them easy to administer

How it works

Heartgard Plus Chewables contain ivermectin, a broad-spectrum antiparasitic medication used to prevent heartworms. They also contain Pyrantel Pamoate, an anthelminthic, used to prevent roundworms and hookworms.

Studies have indicated that certain dogs of the herding breeds are more sensitive to the effects of ivermectin administered at elevated dose levels due to the MDR1 gene. Dog breeds that may be affected include Australian Shepherd, Australian Shepherd Mini, Border Collie, Collie and English Shepherd.

Cautions

Heartgard Plus Chewables may cause sensitivities in herding dog breeds. Heartgard Plus Chewables should be chewed, not swallowed whole. The chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Make sure that your dog eats the entire dose. It is important to give your dog Heartgard Plus Chewables every month, year round. Do not skip winter months, as your dog may become infected if left unprotected. If you miss more than two months of dosage, please consult with your veterinarian as to whether to continue medication.

Possible side effects:

Adverse reactions and serious side effects are rare, however, they can occur. In the case of a more serious side reaction, seek immediate veterinary attention. Serious reactions include vomiting, depression/lethargy, diarrhea, shaking, seizures, uncontrollable body movements, or unusual salivation.
