Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Fussy Little eaters I am so happy with this Hunter is a very fussy eater, and I was afraid he wouldn't eat it but he does and it helps with the Ticks he is always getting them . Between this and his collar he is fine. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Yorkie loves these. My dog will not eat the heartworm protection in pill form. I cannot put a pill in anything and get her to chew it. She loves the Heartgard Chewables and I trust their protection for her!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. Henry and our other dog have been on Heartguard Chewables for years. They love the taste, eat them right down and always have tested heartworm negative. I recommend highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is not an easy to find item My dog required a single ingredient heart worm preventative. She has near lethal reactions to multi worm preventative products. Fortunately, she can take this product with no side effects.

Are you able to take my veterinarian's paper script either by email or mailed to you?? Chewy.com told me they could take it via uploaded photo of script to my phone sent to them then sent me an email that they couldn't. Please let me know .

Asked by: Karla
It may be easier to place your order and provide your vet's information so PetMeds (or Chewy) can contact them directly for prescription approval. Your vet may ask for the written script back, however.

Does ivermecten actually kill adult heartworm?

Asked by: Michael
Ivermectin does not directly kill adult heartworms, but it does kill the microfilaria (larval form) of the heartworm. ... In most cases, the dog should be treated with Immiticide® to kill the adult heartworms, although ivermectin is still used to kill the larva and prevent additional infections.
