What is Tri-Heart Plus?
This monthly oral pet med is used as a combination heartworm preventive and intestinal wormer. Tri-Heart Plus 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).

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

What are the benefits?

* Tasty medicine used for both heartworm prevention and intestinal worming
* Economical heartworm medication with the same active ingredients as Heartgard Plus
* Give year round for complete protection

How does Tri-Heart Plus work?
Tri-Heart Plus is used in the prevention of heartworm infection and the control and treatment of various other worm infections. Tri-Heart 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, causes paralysis and death of intestinal worms.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Yes, both the 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?
Tri-Heart Plus must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Drs. Foster and Smith recommends (and our guarantee requires) that Tri-Heart 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 Tri-Heart Plus and will accept the chewable tablet as a treat. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Tri-Heart 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?
Tri-Heart 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?
Chewables
