What is Heartgard Plus?

Heartgard Plus is a chewable tablet for dogs 6 weeks of age or older that is made of real-beef and it provides protection against heartworms. It also protects against hookworms and roundworms. This product is given monthly to your dog. There is no weight requirements for your dog to use this product as the product comes in three different product types for different sizes of dogs.

Benefits:

  • Easy use with only one dose a month
  • The beef flavor makes the product tasty for most dogs
  • It is effective in controlling hookworms, heartworms, and roundworms

How It Works:

This product works by using two active ingredients: Ivermectin and Pyrantel Pamoate. Ivermectin is an antiparasitic medication that it used to prevent heartworms in dogs. Pyrantel Pamoate is an anthelminthic medication that is used to prevent hookworms and roundworms.

Cautions:

Please note that this medication may cause sensitivities in certain herding dog breeds because of the active ingredient ivermectin. Please consult with your veterinarian before giving your dog this medication.

Heartgard Plus chewable tablet should be chewed and not shallowed whole. If you dog shallows treats make sure to break it up beforehand and give your dog pieces to eat. Also make sure your dog takes the whole dose.

It is very important that this Heartgard Plus is taken all year-round without missing any doses. Do not skip doses in winter months or your dog may become infected. If your dog misses more than two months of dose consult your veterinarian to see whether you should continue with the medication for your dog.


 

Additional Information:

What happens if your dog misses a dose?

What happens if I overdose the pet?
Seek emergency medical attention from a veterinary clinic as soon as possible. Some symptoms of overdose include but are not limited to diarrhea, in-coordination in dogs, and vomiting.

What other drugs will effect Heartgard Plus?

    We've used Heartgard for years. The product does a very good job --- and the pricing makes it even more appealing. There's no trouble getting the dogs to take it. They say it tasts good ---- They said that --- not me! I've never tasted it. But my dogs are honest and I believe them.

    I purchased the "generic" of this product in order to save money. I can't speak to the effectiveness of the product since I've just administered the first dose.

    However, one major difference that I wish was made clear on the website is that this generic is not a chewable. Neither of my dogs will touch it. It is still a fairly good sized tablet, so I crushed it up in a tablespoon or so of peanut butter and got them to eat it that way.

    Not as easy as giving the real "Heartgard", but if it works well, it is still worth the $$.

                                  I give Heartgard to my dogs on the 1st of each month. I buy the 50-110 size and cut it for my Boston terriers. I use one meatbased chew per month and treat all my dogs. They love it and the dosage is safe.
