Heartgard

Do I Need A Prescription From My Vet To Buy Heartgard From 1800PetMeds?

As a pet owner, you know the importance of maintaining your pet's overall health. Not only does your pet need a healthy diet and exercise, but he also needs protection against dangerous internal parasites like heartworms, roundworms, and hookworms. Using a monthly heartworm preventative like Heartgard can help prevent heartworms, while also controlling roundworms and hookworms.

If you've never had your dog tested for heartworms, you will need to schedule a blood test with your veterinarian who can conduct a blood test to determine if your pet already has heartworms. It's important to never give Heartgard to any pet that has not been treated for heartworm disease. This is because if there are any present heartworms in your pet, the medicine will kill the adult heartworms, which can cause serious heart failure and even death. That is why Heartgard Plus is given as a preventative, which kills the heartworm larvae before they turn into adult heartworms.

Heartgard requires a prescription from your veterinarian

Although Heartgard and other heartworm medicines require a prescription, we make the ordering process easy. At 1800PetMeds, we verify your pet's prescription by calling or faxing your veterinarian and then deliver your pet's medication right to your door! Plus, all of our products have a 100% product guarantee, which means you can always count on every product to be of the same exact quality as your veterinarian's office. And, our product guarantee on Heartgard even surpasses that of the manufacturer's (Merial)!

1800PetMeds Heartgard Guarantee

If your dog is taking Heartgard but still manages to contract heartworms, the process of getting reimbursed for heartworm treatment from the manufacturer can be lengthy and time consuming. But at 1800PetMeds we don't require all the paperwork. When you buy your dog's Heartgard medicine through 1800PetMeds, all you need to send us is your vet's bill and we'll send you a check for the cost of heartworm treatment.* It's as simple as that!

*Reimbursement is up to $500 per treatment for Heartgard product purchase. Customer must have purchased Heartgard from us for 9 consecutive months in order to qualify for reimbursement.
