Heartgard Plus Chewable for Dogs - Heartworm Prevention

Heartgard Plus is a heartworm preventative that aids in the treatment and control of roundworms and hookworms in dogs, as well as the elimination of heartworms. It's available in a tasty once-a-month real-beef chew that dogs adore, and it's safe for puppies aged 6 weeks and older.

How does Heartgard Plus Chews work?

HeartgardPlus Chewable include Ivermectin, a broad-spectrum antiparasitic compound used to prevent heartwormsin dogs by eliminating heartworm larvae that have infected them in the previous 30 days. Heartgard Plus prevents the disease by destroying larvae and preventing them from growing into juvenile and adult heartworms.Pyrantel  Pamoate, an anthelmintics, is also present, which is used to prevent roundworms and hookworms. The monthly application of Heartgard Plus may assist to minimize the burden of roundworm eggs and hookworm larvae in the environment, lowering the risk of reinfection.


“HEARTGARD Plus, Vet's #1 choice for heartworm disease prevention in dogs.”

Heartgard Plus Monthly Heartworm Protection

Heartgard Plus must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. 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.

FAQ

Is Heartgard Plus safe to use in any breed of dog?

When used as directed, Heartgard Plus is safe and effective in any breed of dog. However, certain breeds like Collie are sensitive to Ivermectin, so it is advised to consult a vet before treating them. Additionally, all dogs should be tested for heartworm infection before starting a preventive program.

 

Is Heartgard Plus safe for pregnant dogs?

Heartgard Plus is clinically proven to be safe to use for pregnant and breeding dogs when treated with the recommended dose level.

 

How does Heartgard Plus Work?

When an infected mosquito transmits heartworm larvae to your dog, Heartgard Plus kills the developing larvae before they get to the bloodstream. Heartgard Plus prevents the larvae from developing into adult heartworms.

 

Does Heartgard Plus Kill Whipworms?

No, Heartgard Plus does not kill whipworms whereas it eliminates roundworms and hookworms.

 

Does Heartgard Plus Kill Fleas And Ticks?

No, Heartgard Plus is specifically designed to prevent heartworm infection and protect dogs against the dangers of heartworm disease.

 

What Happens If I Miss Giving A Dose Of Heartgard Plus Chewables?

The best thing if you missed is to check with your vet. If it is just two/three days, you can dose your dog. However, if it is more than a week or 15 days, it is safe to get your dog to diagnose for heartworm infection.
