Product Information

Give your small dog Heartgard Plus tablets once a month in order to protect him/her from heartworm disease and common intestinal parasites (roundworms and hookworms). These chewable and tasty tablets are easy to give. They are the #1 choice for veterinarians in aiding in the prevention of adult heartworm infection for dogs.

Heartgard Plus is: a chewable tablet that is given every 30 days in order to prevent heartworm disease and control and treat roundworms and hookworms. Each tablet contains Ivermectin and Pyrantel pamoate which are powerful worming medications. This size is for dogs under 25 lbs.

What are the benefits? 1.Provides adequate protection against heartworm disease in dogs; 2.Controls and treats common intestinal worms (roundworms and hookworms) in addition to providing heartworm protection;3.Flavored tablets once a month make administration easy.

What outcomes can be expected?

Immature heartworms (larvae) that your dog was exposed to in the preceding month should die before adult heartworms develop. Adult heartworms can cause illness in your dog.

The active ingredients in Heartgard Plus also aid in the control and treatment of hookworms and roundworms.

Most dogs enjoy the delicious beef flavor so they take tablets like a treat.

Who is it for: Puppies(over 6 weeks of age) and adult dogs weighing under 25 lbs. Pregnant/breeding females can use this medication as directed by a veterinarian.

How is it given?

1. Give tablet(s) orally (by mouth) every 30 days.

2. Use Heartgard Plus during mosquito season (spring/summer) or year-round as directed by your veterinarian.

3. A heartworm test is usually necessary prior to starting this medication. Periodic retesting is also recommended. Your veterinarian will determine the testing protocol that is best for your dog.

4. Try to give medication on the same day every month as efficacy may be reduced if given less frequently. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember but never give two doses as once.

5. Do not give this medication to any dog other than the one it has been prescribed for.

6. Tablets should be chewed or broken up into small pieces and should not be swallowed whole.

7. Keep each tablet in the original packaging until you are ready to use it.

8. Contact your veterinarian if you have any questions or concerns regarding this medication.

How does it work? Heartgard Plus kills heartworms in their immature stage before they cause your dog to become ill. Ivermectin and Pyrantel pamoate are highly effective worming medications that also work well in controlling and treating roundworm and hookworm infections.

Heartgard Plus is available as: a beef-flavored, chewable tablet that is safe for dogs under 25 lbs.

Generic Name: Ivermectin, Pyrantel Pamoate. Tri-heart Plus and Iverhart Plus are branded, generic alternatives.

          I've been using this product for years on the rotation of various dogs that have been part of our family. Even the picky eaters eat this, so it must be tasty. And the price is much lower than getting it from the vet. Good stuff!
