Iverhart Max 185 185
Easy and it Works My dog never gives me an issue when trying to give her Iverhart Max. Once a month and done. I visited the vet for her yearly (first year) checkup and she said all is great, no issues. As far as price, it's better than my vet could offer, so I will continue to purchase through 1-800-PetMeds 04/24/2014
Iverhart Max Iverhart Max product review: As I also mention under my product review for Iverhart plus, it is truly wonderful for me to see a reliable more economic generic available for animal guardians that is certainly comparable to the more expensive brand name monthly heartworm preventatives. With this Virbac product, not only are clients getting the reliable heartworm prevention record of ivermectin, but also the additional preventative benefits and control of other internal parasites of the digestive tract, including roundworms, hookworms, and in this case tapeworms as well. It is exciting to see the inclusion of praziquantel in this combination product to broaden the spectrum of coverage of Iverhart plus against tapeworms. Tapeworms are among the most common frustrating parasites seen in dogs and cats, especially when there is any risk of flea exposure. Iverhart Max stands alone in having this added benefit of tapeworm control. Even for only this additional benefit, as well as the ones I mention under Iverhart plus , I highly recommend this reliable generic product and alternative to the other more expensive monthly heartworm pills that dont offer this protection against tapeworms. The only negative issue I have seen is the occasional pet who develops digestive upset from one of the ingredients, in which case I would change to a different monthly alternative. The only other possible limitation with this product is that it does not protect or prevent against whipworms, which in certain areas of the United States can be an intestinal parasite that can sometimes cause acute or chronic inflammation of the colon and diarrhea. But in my experience, whipworms are not as common as I used to see in my earlier days of veterinary practice. Thus my overall rating of this product is a 5. Its effectiveness a 4 and its taste a 4 as well. 12/01/2008

I love this product I have two dogs so buying a years worth of heart worm medicine for both of them can be a little pricey on... this product makes it so much more affordable and is really effective. Sometimes my dogs take it by itself, sometimes I have to put it in a pill pocket, but if that's the only issue I'm having, then I'll take it. This is an EXCELLENT product and let's me affordably take care of my fur babies :) 10/08/2014
The price is right and meds are effective. Hi, we use Iverhart on all three of our dogs, and would use it on our cat if they made such. It is so much cheaper than the Heartgard....and I love 1800 Pet Med, because they will price match any other online stores prices...Their customer service is awesome...I always call and place my order and the assistance I get is always 100% friendly and professional. My dogs love the Iverhart and take it with no problem. I highly recommend. You cant get a better deal on Heart Worm prevention! 09/23/2014

I gave my Cairn Terrier Iverhart Max today in a Pill Pocket (he refuses to chew these hard monstrosities). I have observed lethargy in him on a previous month but I had been giving him K9 Advantix on the same day, so I tried spacing those out by a week to make sure he wasn't reacting to the Advantix. He was really restless and a little gassy this evening, about four hours after I gave him the pill. When I took him out, he had two BMs and came in with a reddish orange stain on his fur. I wiped his rear and it appears to be blood but he is not bleeding from his anal glands as far as I can tell. He does not appear to be in pain or lethargic. He's alert and interested in everything I do and otherwise acting normal. I will observe his BM in the morning to see if he needs to go to the vet.
Answer:¬†It's me again. Nikki's stiool did not have an orange tint today, and when I wiped him, the wipe did not have any orange or red on it, so he appears to be alright. He's not gassy or restless, either. I'm glad he's alright, but I'm going to watch for similar reactions next month, if I don't talk to his vet first.
Answer:¬†Your dog is right on the borderline between doses.
Your veterinarian can either prescribe the iverhart max 50.1 to 100 plus the iverhart max 6-12 pounds
or the iverhart max 50.1 to 100 pounds plus the iverhart max 12-25 pound dose. It depends on
your veterinarian and also your pets weight history. If the pet is usually over 112 pounds, the vet
might go with the higher dose just to be on the safe side.
I have 2 different dogs, one weighs 36 pounds and the other weighs close to 55 lbs. Would I have to buy 2 different boxes of this product?
Answer:¬†Grandmother always taught me to follow the doctors orders......never to take more medicine than was perscribed. I believe this is good advice for dogs too. Too much of something is not always a good thing. Buy both and follow the directions.
Is it okay to switch from Iverhart Plus to Iverhart Max at any time? I know you have to have dogs tested for heartworms before starting them on a wormer and since Iverhart Max also guards against tapeworms, I was wondering if they have to be tested for tapeworms or anything before making the switch or if you can just switch at any time.
Answer:¬†You NEVER want to give heartworm medication to any dog that hasn't been tested for heartworm. Heartworm tests MUST be done once a year. Administering a heartworm medication to a dog that has heartworm could kill it, therefore knowing beforehand is a must. Even if your dog has never missed a dose for an entire year, they must have a test every year or veterinarians are not going to "ok" the prescription fulfillment. Also keep in mind, this is not a "preventative," but rather a dewormer, meaning it doesn't protect for the upcoming month, but rather gets rid of whatever the dog may have picked up the previous month. This is one of those areas where you don't want to cut corners, believe me. Heartworm is a brutally harsh disease and it's just not worth risking your dog's life. See your vet at least annually.
