Product Detail: Heartgard Plus Chewables
Heartgard Plus is indicated for use in dogs to prevent canine heartworm disease by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae for a month (30 days) after infection, and for the treatment and control of roundworms and hookworms.
What are the active ingredients in Heartgard Plus?
How Heartgard Plus works
Heartgard Plus prevents canine heartworm disease by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae (Dirofilaria immitis) for a month (30 days) after infection and for the treatment and control of ascarids (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina) and hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala, Ancylostoma braziliense).
How can you properly administer Heartgard Plus?
Heartgard Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) should be administered orally at monthly intervals at the recommended minimum dose level of 6 mcg of ivermectin per kilogram (2.72 mcg/lb) and 5 mg of pyrantel (as pamoate salt) per kg (2.27 mg/lb) of body weight. The recommended dosing schedule for the prevention of canine heartworm disease and for the treatment and control of ascarids and hookworms is as follows:
Dog Weight Chewables per month Ivermectin Pyrantel Color coding
Up to 25 lbs 1 68 mcg 57 mcg Blue
26 to 50 lbs 1 136 mcg 114 mcg Green
51 to 100 lbs 1 272 mcg 228 mcg Brown
Heartgard Plus is recommended for dogs 6 weeks of age and older. For dogs over 100 lb use the appropriate combination of these chewables.
What are the precautions in using Heartgard Plus?
All dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection before starting treatment with Heartgard Plus which is not effective against adult D. immitis. Infected dogs must be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae before initiating a program with Heartgard Plus. While some microfilariae may be killed by the ivermectin in Heartgard Plus at the recommended dose level, Heartgard Plus is not effective for microfilariae clearance. A mild hypersensitivity-type reaction, presumably due to dead or dying microfilariae and particularly involving a transient diarrhea, has been observed in clinical trials with ivermectin alone after treatment of some dogs that have circulating microfilariae.

HeartGard is a great product and I trust that it does the job for my pet. I also like the website of Joe'sPetMeds.com. This is where I go when I want meds for my pet. Always receive the meds I order within the set timeframe and the meds are affordable!
Joe's + Heartgard = Unbeatable!
I've been a loyal customer to Joe's Pet Meds for a while now and I have to say I am extremely pleased with the quality, prices, and service they offer. Our pet meds are always delivered quickly and are packaged well. Tommy-girl actually enjoys her heartgard treatments and it's kept her strong, healthy, and safe. Thanks Joes!
Great prices on brand name meds HIGHLY recommended!
I have been buying my pet meds from Joe's for several years and have always been very pleased. Dogs always test negative for heartworms!
My 4 dogs love this medicine. They think it is a treat!
excellent product ,price excellent,
My dogs love eating this medication, as opposed to the generic version which I had to shove down their throats. It is worth a couple extra dollars to just be able to hand them the Heartgard and move on with the next task.
Really a bargain price compared to buying it anywhere else, even online.
Heartgard is the same product vets sell but at a greatly reduced price at Joes Pey Meds! Been using Joes Pet Meds for about 10 years! Great products at a really great price! Love them and the service is fast
Great product, name brand, for the price. Thank you Joe
Joe's is the BEST!!
I have been ordering from Joe's for years. Very reliable and affordable. Much better than buying the so expensive ones from the vets. WE LOVE JOE'S!!!
