What is Interceptor?
You can protect your pet from heartworm and intestinal worms with one medication. This monthly oral pet medication can be used in dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens to kill the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis). Interceptor also controls adult hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum and Ancylostoma tubaeforme), and removes and controls adult roundworms (ascarids - Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina in dogs and Toxocara cati in cats), and whipworms (Trichuris vulpis) in dogs.

Who is it for?
For dogs and puppies over 4 weeks of age weighing more than 2 pounds, and cats and kittens over 6 weeks of age weighing more than 1.5 lbs. Safe to use in pregnant and nursing dogs.

What are the benefits?

* Easily protect your dog, puppy, cat, or kitten from heartworm and intestinal worms
* Treats and controls hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm
* Tasty flavor tabs are easy to administer

How does Interceptor work?
Interceptor is used in the prevention of heartworm and the prevention, control and treatment of various other worm infections. Interceptor contains milbemycin oxime, which is thought to interfere with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing death of immature heartworms (larvae) and adult intestinal worms.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
No.

How is it given?
Interceptor must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Drs. Foster and Smith recommends (and our guarantee requires) that Interceptor 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 pet's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be given within 30 days after the pet's last exposure to mosquitoes.

Most dogs and cats like the taste of Interceptor and will accept the tablet as a treat. Interceptor may be crumbled and mixed with some food. 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?
Interceptor will kill the immature heartworms the pet 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?
