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 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.

Thank you Joe's Pet Meds! You got really affordable items and I was able to buy Heartgard Plus Chewables at almost half of its vet's price. Couldn't ask for more. Thank you.

HeartGard Plus is a great product. My 12 year olds male Rotty had heartworms when he was only 2. HeartGard plus pulled him through and has kept him and my 3 other Rotty heart worm free. What can be a better compliment to a product?

I use Heartguard because it is proven safe by time. New heartworm preventative have more risks, so I stick with the safety.

I have giant breed dogs and the cost for all dogs is based on weight, needless to say it is very expensive to keep all of your dogs safe. Since I found Joe's I have been extremely happy with the product and the cost is the best I've found.

Great Product at a Great Price

I started with Heartgard Chewables as a new customer about 7 years ago. Everything was exactly the same as what I could have purchased at my vet's. But these are cheaper. My dog, Sadie, loves them! And she is healthy and happy. And they are so easy to give her. Thank you, Joe, for a "bunch" of wonderful pet products at a price we can appreciate! Sincerely, Linda Dooley

What an amazing deal for this product! I have searched many websites and talked to many vets, and Joe's absolutely has the best prices! Their shipping is quick and easy and their customer service is wonderful! My dogs do very well with this product and think that this is a treat every month! They seem to love the flavor, which makes it easy to administer.
