Interceptor are beef flavored tablets for preventing heartworms and treating gastrointestinal worms. The anthelmintic treatment destroys the larval stages of heartworms and does not allow them to develop into adult stages. Given as a monthly dosage the tablets suit all breeds of dogs. Being active for four consecutive weeks, the tablet provides relief from all kinds of intestinal parasites.
How it works?
A Novartis product, Interceptor heartworm preventive, and gastrointestinal parasite treatment provide absolute protection against heartworms, tapeworms, hookworms, whipworms, and roundworms. A monthly dose of the tablet blocks the growth of heartworms by destroying its larval and other immature stages. It hampers their reproductive process and halts their population.
The palatable tablets with Milbemycin and Praziquantel as the active ingredients remain effective for 30 days. During this time, they protect the pet from all kinds of heartworm and intestinal diseases. They are suitable for all breeds of dogs including Ivermectin sensitive border collies.
Before starting the treatment, a test for existing heartworm infection is a must. Consult your vet and get your pet checked prior to starting Interceptor.
