Product Information

Iverhart plus for Large Dogs has the same active ingredients as Heartgard Plus. It is a generic alternative to the name brand so it is more affordable. It contains ivermectin and pyrantel pamoate and it is effective in preventing heartworm disease as well as treating and preventing roundworms and hookworms which are common intestinal parasites.

What is Iverhart Plus? This medication is the generic alternative to Heartgard Plus. It is an oral preventative medication that is typically given on a monthly basis in order to prevent heartworm disease. It is also effective in treating and controlling roundworms and hookworms.

Iverhart Plus is formulated for: dogs and puppies over 6 weeks of age and can also be given safely to pregnant/breeding females.

What are the benefits of Iverhart Plus? Iverhart Plus has the same active ingredients as Heartgard Plus but it is more economical. Ivermectin and pyrantel pamoate are the active ingredients that help to protect your dog from heartworm infection plus intestinal worms (roundworms and hookworms). Tablets are chewable and flavored with pork and liver making it easy to administer to most dogs. It is also a safe alternative for dogs who have allergies to the beef flavoring in Heartgard Plus and similar medications.

How does Iverhart Plus work? This medication is effective because of two active ingredients. Ivermectin helps to prevent heartworm disease by eliminating the larval (immature) form of the heartworms (Dirofilaria immitus). Eliminating larvae prevents adult heartworms from developing before they have a chance to cause illness in your dog. Ivermectin works by causing paralysis of the parasite resulting in eventual death. Pyrantel pamoate works to treat and control common intestinal parasites (hookworms- Ancylostoma caninum, A. brasiliense, Uncinaria stenocephala and roundworms- Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina).

What results can I expect? Each dose of Iverhart Plus will kill immature heartworms that your dog was exposed to in the preceding month. This will prevent the development of adult heartworms that can cause your pet to become ill. It also controls and treats common intestinal parasites (roundworms and hookworms).

What form(s) does Iverhart Plus come in? Iverhart Plus is a chewable tablet with pork-liver flavoring. This dose of medication should be given to dogs weighing 51-100 lbs.

Common Brand Name:Iverhart Plus (Virbac).

Generic Name: Ivermectin and pyrantel Pamoate (Commmon Drug Name). Contains the same active ingredients as Heartgard Plus.

Uses: Iverhart Plus is used to prevent heartworm disease in dogs by killing immature heartworm larvae before they develop into adults that can cause illness. This medication also controls and treats common intestinal parasites (hookworms and roundworms).

Dose and Administration: Iverhart Plus is a chewable tablet with pork-liver flavoring. It is given every 30 days either year round or seasonally during mosquito season based on the recommendation of your veterinarian. Try to give each dose on the same day every month if possible. This medication is available in various sizes based on your dog’s body weight. Iverhart Plus can be chewed, crumbled and mixed with food, or swallowed whole. Make sure you observe your dog for a few minutes after a tablet has been given to make sure it has been ingested. If your dog spits a dose out, give another tablet immediately. Do not remove a tablet from the package until you are ready to give it. If the interval between doses is longer than one month, the efficacy of the drug is reduced. If a dose is missed, give Iverhart Plus as soon as you remember and resume a monthly dosing schedule. Report the missed dose to your veterinarian. If more than one month is missed, talk to your veterinarian because heartworm testing may be necessary before giving Iverhart again.



Possible Side Effects: If this medication is given at the recommended dose, side effects are rare. Gastrointestinal side effects like vomiting and diarrhea can occur. Other problems including incoordination, convulsions, or drooling can also occur but this is unusual. Symptoms of a true allergic reaction to this medication or dying of parasites include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma. If you observe any of these signs, this can be an emergency so call your veterinarian or local veterinary emergency hospital immediately. If you notice anything unusual once Iverhart Plus has been given, contact your veterinarian immediately for further instructions and advice.

Precautions: Do not give this medication to in puppies less than 6 weeks of age. It is, however, considered to be safe to use in pregnant and lactating animals but you should discuss this with your veterinarian. This medication should be used more cautiously in Collies and herding breeds especially when given at higher doses because they are more sensitive to Ivermectin which is an active ingredient in Iverhart Plus. Discuss the safety of this medication with your veterinarian if you own a dog that is a Collie or herding breed. Heartworm testing is necessary prior to starting this medication to ensure that it can be given safely. Talk to your veterinarian about the frequency of testing that may be necessary to protect your dog. Discuss other measures you can take to protect your pets and yourself from intestinal parasite infections in addition to using this medication.

Drug and Food Interactions: There are no known drug or food interactions with this medication, but always tell your veterinarian about any medications, vitamins, or supplements your dog is taking before starting this one since interactions can occur. Also tell your veterinarian if your dog is taking any other preventative medications before starting Iverhart Plus.

Storage: Store this medication in an area away from direct light at room temperature. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

                  Do not have any experience with this med. Have used Heargard in the past. It is a "must" use med so we will see how well the dog tolerates it.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I ordered over the phone. The rep was excellent.
                  Also, the continuous order status and folow up was excellent. This is a company I will do business with in the future.
