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 canisToxascaris leonina) and hookworms (Ancylostoma caninumUncinaria stenocephalaAncylostoma 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.

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!

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.

Great bargain
