Heartgard Plus is a chewable, beef-flavored tablet administered once a month to protect your dog from the threat of potentially deadly heartworm disease, plus control against roundworms and hookworms. Dogs six months of age and older should be tested for heartworm disease prior to being put on a preventive program and tested annually thereafter. VetSource pharmacy has a direct relationship with and is authorized to dispense Merial products.

For:
Dogs (at least 6 weeks of age)

Benefits:
Heartgard Plus is used to prevent heartworm disease, treat and control roundworms and hookworms.

Active Ingredients:
ivermectin, pyrantel

Cautions:
Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving to your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, and a drug interaction may be anticipated. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. The following drugs can potentially interact with pyrantel pamoate: levamisole, organophosphates, diethylcarbamazine, and piperazine. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together. Certain dogs of the collie breed are more sensitive to the effects of ivermectin. Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform VetSource and your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.


Side Effects:
There are very few side effects when the drug is given at the usual dose. Ivermectin may cause a shock like reaction in dogs. If this occurs, notify your veterinarian. Vomiting has been reported with pyrantel. Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.


Usage:
Heartgard Plus should be given orally as directed by your veterinarian.

          Comments about Merial Heartgard Plus Chewables for Dogs:

          These preventative heartworm treats are just that to my dog...a chewy and yummy treat. He loves when he sees me go in the box..starts licking his chops. When he was a puppy and not well trained yet, he took the one I was about to give him later that night off the coffee table, popped it out of the wrapping and ate it. I came into the room to a happy puppy and an empty wrapper haha! I've had to give medicine to previous dogs and it could be really frustrating, especially if they're above average in intelligence and figure out what you're doing after the first teaspoon of peanut butter or slice of cheese. This treat style medicine is so easy to give, your dog may wind up taking it upon themselves to give themselves their dose for the month like Koa did!

          heartguard works quite well in preventing the various worms that Milo might have without the meds.

          It is not Petflow.com's fault that my package was late, it was USPS. I love this website for the prices and the excellent customer service that I received for USPS being ridiculous. Moo got her Heartgard regardless!
