What is Ivermectin-Pyrantel - Generic to Heartgard Plus?

Ivermectin/Pyrantel for dogs is a heartworm preventative that also controls roundworms and hookworms. Ivermectin/Pyrantel is a generic equivalent to Heartgard Plus, and requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It has the same active ingredients and is the same strength. Ivermectin/Pyrantel is considered to be the #1 generic heartworm preventative recommended by veterinarians.

For:

Dogs (6 weeks of age or older and no weight requirement)

Benefits:
  • Tasty flavored chewable tablets
  • Easy to administer
  • Small, easy-to-chew tablet for smaller or finicky dogs
  • Given once a month
How it Works:

Ivermectin/Pyrantel is an anthelmintic (dewormer). The ingredient pyrantel pamoate is used to treat and control roundworms and hookworms in dogs.

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. Dog breeds that may be affected include Australian Shepherd, Australian Shepherd Mini, Border Collie, Collie and English Shepherd.

Cautions:

Can cause sensitivities in herding dog breeds. Side effects of Ivermectin/Pyrantel are rare, but may include lethargy, limpness, salivation, shaking, diarrhea, decreased appetite, licking lips, and belching. Don't give your pet Ivermectin/Pyrantel if already giving a different heartworm medication. The safe use of this drug has not been evaluated in pregnant or lactating bitches.

Brand Name:

Iverhart Plus (Virbac), Tri-Heart Plus (Merck)

Generic Name:

Ivermectin/Pyrantel

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Ivermectin/Pyrantel to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to the medication.

What is the most important information I should know about Ivermectin/Pyrantel:

Ivermectin/Pyrantel is a prescription medication available as flavored chewable tablets. The usual dose of Ivermectin/Pyrantel in dogs up to 25 pounds is 68mcg/57mg (Blue box), for dogs 26-50 pounds is 136mcg/114mg (Green box) and for dogs 51-100 lbs 272mcg/227mg (Brown box). Dogs over 100 lbs are given a combination of tablets.

How should this medication be given:

Give Ivermectin/Pyrantel exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Use with caution, Collies and other herding dog breeds have been known to have adverse reactions to ivermectin administered at elevated dose levels. Heartworm testing should be performed prior to the start of prevention therapy. If your pet is off Ivermectin/Pyrantel for 6 months or less, start the medication and test after 6 months since microfilaria, that take 6 months to mature, will result in a positive test result. Store Ivermectin/Pyrantel at room temperature. Do not remove the tablet from its wrapper until ready to give to your pet. Keep this medication away from children and pets. The safe use of this drug has not been evaluated in pregnant or lactating bitches.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What should I avoid while giving Ivermectin/Pyrantel to my pet:

Because humans can contract hookworms from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on your pet and in the household and to not feed your pet rodents. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.

What are the possible side effects of Ivermectin/Pyrantel:

Side effects of Ivermectin/Pyrantel are rare at the recommended heartworm prevention dose. Higher doses in dogs may cause tremors, dilated pupils, loss of body weight, or death.

What other drugs will affect Ivermectin/Pyrantel:

Do not give Ivermectin/Pyrantel if your pet is already being given another heartworm medication.

How to Use

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartworm Tri-Heart Plus I like the heart worm pills although it's easier with the soft chews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased this for my two dogs, both do not show signs of side effects, my Aussie Shepard doesn't seem to mind eating the pill, my Beagle/Basset however is much fussier and I have to crush the pill and mix it with her food, but the pill is pretty easy to crush and I feel much better since they are protected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using this for years now with confidence for both my Peekapoo (16) and Lab mix (12). No issue and I save money. The little dog is a bit picky and spit it out but I just put it in a cube of cheese. Always negative tests and we travel all over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! I have given this heart worm med. since my dog was old enough for heart medication. He's doing great with it. He loves the taste so there's no problem when it's time to take his medicine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dissatisfied I bought this bargain brand and wish hadn't. I have Pugs and they're not picky. The first month went well, but the next month they spit them out. They refuse to take them. I'll have to buy my usual brand Heartguard.

Since my Yorkie weighs 8 lbs can I just give him a half of the dose?

Asked by: Bella
No unless your veterinarian has directed you to do otherwise. The blue sized medication will cover your pet from 1 to 25 pounds, therefore splitting the tablet is not usually recommended.

Do we need to find a VET to get the prescription ?

Asked by: vitt patel
Yes, Triheart Plus requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Date published: 2016-11-16

Hello ... why is for your heartworm medication a prescription from the vet needed when i can buy it over the counter at my vet clinic ? i'd rather order it online so i dont have to drive there ..but it doesn't make sense to me . thank you.

Asked by: Nomi
The medication is still a prescription at your vet's office. The vet is dispensing the medication under the ability to do so under his/her veterinary license as well as under the license of the facility that acts as an onsite dispensary. As a licensed pharmacy we require the veterinarian's prescription in order to dispense the medication at our facility.
