Iverhart Max 204 204
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

My dog Luke is a 12 yr old Ridgeback and he has not had heart worms yet. Guess Iverhart works well! Wallace Ferrara 03/22/2015
easy and time saving Nice to be able to send for the pills and not have to take time to go to the vet for refills. Ruby does not seem to get any side effects from the pills and so far all heart-worm tests have been negative :) 03/10/2015

The prescription is for Triheart, and I'm concern about the ivermectin in this breed
Answer:Studies have indicated that certain dogs of the herding breeds are more sensitive to the effects of ivermectin administered at elevated dose levels due to the MDR1 gene. Consequently, many veterinarians choose to prescribe alternative heartworm preventatives. Consult your veterinarian for the best choice for your pet.
Answer:Keep on a regular dosing regimen, the de-worming is beneficial every month regardless of the risk of heart-worms in the winter seasons.
(Heart worms take roughly 6 months to mature which the product prevents from happening, but they will still continue to live for a time (harmlessly) in the dogs blood stream so a continual dosing schedule is ideal to prevent infection.)
I have a 165 lb Great Dane. I believe that my vet was prescribing the 100lb tablet in addition to a smaller tablet to compensate for her large size. Should I continue doing that, or will one or the large tablets work fine?
I am not sure if it matters, but she used to have heartworms, but she was treated and has now been heartworm free for almost 2 years.
