Product Detail: Generic Heartgard (Ivermectin)
Nuheart Generic Heartgard Alternative is a monthly treatment for the prevention of heartworm in canines. This generic medication contains the same ingredient at the same dose rate as the Heartgard brand of Heartworm prevention medication, so it has just the same effectiveness, but costs a fraction of the price.
Nuheart makes dosing easy! The tablets are very small in size, across the entire range, which ensures easier dosing and less rejection. And Nuheart’s sweetly meat flavoured base is attractive to dogs and makes "tablet time" simple. For difficult dogs, Nuheart can even be dissolved quickly in a small amount of water and mixed in the pet’s food, so they won’t even know they’ve had their medication.
Warnings, Side Effects and Drug Interactions: Adverse reactions may occur when dogs already infested with adult heartworm or microfilariae are treated with Nuheart tablets. It is important to check the dog for such infestations prior to treatment.Nuheart tablets have a wide margin of safety in most dogs, but some adverse reactions may occur especially in Collies and Border Collies. If a dog develops untoward effects a veterinarian should be consulted immediately.
Dosage and Administration: Treatment should occur regularly at monthly intervals. Give the dog one tablet once a month on the same day or within a few days of the same day. If a tablet is missed in a month the prevention program may not be effective and a veterinarian should be consulted.
Give tablet by placing it on back of dog’s tongue and pushing it down throat with finger. Alternatively, tablet can be dissolved in 5 to 10 mL warm water or other fluid and added to the dog’s feed. Ensure entire dose is consumed; if it is not, give another tablet.
