What is Heartgard?
Heartgard is a monthly oral pet med used in dogs and puppies as a heartworm preventive.

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

What are the benefits?

* Prescription pet med prevents heartworm infection in dogs and puppies
* Heartgard dog medication comes in convenient chewables
* Easy once-a-month administration

How does Heartgard work?
Heartgard is used in the prevention of heartworm infections. It kills the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis). Heartgard contains ivermectin, which interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of the immature heartworms (larvae).

Is there a generic equivalent available?
We do not carry a generic form of Heartgard tablets/chewables.

How is it given?
Heartgard must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Drs. Foster and Smith recommends (and our guarantee requires) that Heartgard 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.

Remove only one Heartgard Chewable at a time from the foil-backed blister card. Put the remaining Heartgard Chewables back into the box to protect from light. Most dogs like the taste of Heartgard Chewables 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. Heartgard 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 will kill the immature heartworms the dog was exposed to in the preceding month.

What form(s) does it come in?
Chewables, Tablets
