What is Heartgard Plus?
Heartgard Plus is a monthly oral pet med used as a combination heartworm preventive and intestinal wormer.

Who is it for?
Dogs and puppies over 6 weeks of age. Safe for pregnant/breeding females.

What are the benefits of Heartgard?

* Protect your dog from potentially deadly heartworm disease
* Treat and control hookworms and roundworms (which can cause disease in both pets and people)
* Delicious beef-flavored chewable is easy to administer

How does Heartgard Plus work?
Heartgard Plus is used in the prevention of heartworm infection and the control and treatment of various other worm infections. It kills the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis), which is transmitted by a mosquito. It is also used for the treatment and control of hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, A. brasiliense, and Uncinaria stenocephala) and roundworms (ascarids - Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina).

Heartgard Plus contains two active ingredients: ivermectin, which interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of the immature heartworms (larvae), and pyrantel pamoate, which also interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of intestinal worms.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Yes, Tri-Heart Plus and the Iverhart Plus are branded generic alternatives to Heartgard Plus and should be interchangeable as long as the doctor does not indicate "dispense as written".

How is it given?
Heartgard Plus must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Drs. Foster and Smith recommends (and our guarantee requires) that Heartgard Plus be given year round, although some veterinarians may recommend giving it only during the mosquito season. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the dog's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be given within 30 days after the dog's last exposure to mosquitoes.

Most dogs like the taste of Heartgard Plus and will accept the chewable like a treat. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Heartgard Plus Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes after administration to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If not entirely consumed, give another full recommended dose as soon as possible.

What results can I expect?
Heartgard Plus will kill the immature heartworms the dog was exposed to in the preceding month. It will treat an intestinal infection with adult hookworms and roundworms.

What form(s) does it come in?
