Heartgard Plus Chewables 906 915
Dogs think it is a treat! We have been using Heartgard going back to when it was in pill form only and this chewable makes it easier on you and your pet. We have been using it ever since it came out on the market and it is highly effective, living in the south where mosquitos exist year round our dogs also receive it every month, Making certain that they got this medication is vital, with the chewable you watch them joyfully ingest it as they think it is a treat. In pill form, with con artists you are not certain whether they actually swallowed it or not. The additional "Plus" of protection against Ascaris and Hookwook infestations touched home when our new puppy, who had been given injections of Heartworm preventative medication only received his first dose of Heartgard Plus. He had been having loose stools and gas. The very next morning when I took him outside to the bathroom and he had his first morning bowel movement I saw the cause of his loose stools and gas: Round worms (Ascaris). Well, they certainly did not like the Heargard Plus either! I did take him to our Vet and we followed up with some meds just to be certain we rid him of all of the life stages of the worms. As a Med tech for 30 years, I know my intestinal parasites. 1-800-PetMeds and especially Peter, were eixtremely helpful in expediting this medication delvery for me. I will continue to do business with 1-800-PetMeds because of Peter's professionalism, service and effeciency. Thank you. 05/13/2011

My dog is gettingp in age. She was havinga problem chewing her heartworm pill and would spit it out. She loves the softer Heartgard pill. She took the pill with no hesitation. 02/18/2015
Rangie Loves this stuff! I wish Rangie would gobble up his joint medicine like he does the Heartgard!! He loves the stuff and doesn't hesitate for a minute to take it and begs for more!! I wish you could flavor his joint medicine like this .. all we do is throw it out .. he'll eat everything in his bowl EXCEPT it and it doesn't matter what brand it is. Food for thought .. it's like catnip to a cat! 02/17/2015
So glad we have switched from tablets Our little 'Baxter' Shih-Tzu must really enjoy the chewables. We had a previous Shih Tzu that just wouldn't take any medication no matter how we tried to hide it. Our vet suggested we try the Heartgard Chewable product & he ate it like a treat. Now our little guy has had no other than Heartgard Plus & he seems to love them & want more! Harold for 'Baxter' in Oregon 02/08/2015

Answer:Please consult with your vet in regards to which preventative to use for your furry pal.
My male Shih Tzu puppy is 14 weeks old and about 5lbs. My female Shih Tzu is 8 years old and 17lbs. She has always been on Heartguard without a problem. I want to give this to my puppy, but I'm uncomfortable doing so until I get an answer. How is the same chewable ok for the puppy when my girl is 3 times his weight? The lowest dose you have is for 1-25lbs. Isn't it overkill on the puppy?
Answer:You might think so, but the dose is correct. Most medications actually have a dosage range of X to Y mg per pound that have been tested to be both safe and as effective at the high and low end. Since Heartgard is a chewable and non-scored tablet, splitting the pill to give your puppy a lower dose might not be effective as the actual medication may not be evenly distributed throughout the tablet. Go ahead and give your puppy the full tablet so he will be protected. The FDA has tested and approved that dose for the full weight range.
Answer:No, you can not split the larger dose to give to smaller dogs. because the chew-tab is not scored, the medication is probably not evenly mixed in the chew-tab so one piece may have all the active medication and the other piece have none.
Answer:I break up the HG into a bunch of small pieces so that my dog can't swallow it whole. It's easy to cut up or break off a piece.
What I think you might ask your vet is whether the active product is evenly spread throughout the product. I'm not a vet and can only tell you that it's easy to cut the chewable into pieces.
Answer:Yes. Sentinel, Trifexis, Revolution and Advantage Multi are all excellent heartworm preventatives that can be used on ivermectin-sensitive dogs.
Answer:Please consult with your vet in regards to an alternative to Heartgard Plus.
