My little Yorkie loves these!
My little dog is very picky about what she eats but when she sees me go to the place where I keep her Heartgard Chewables she immediately runs to my side. She loves them and would eat an entire box if I would let her. Of course I will only give her one but they must taste very good to her! I feel she is being protected and she loves the taste, too. The price at 1-800-PetMeds is better than my vet’s office so I order them.

Finally something that tastes good
Our pug/schnauzer mix has always been on interceptor and she hated it, we had such a hard time getting her to take it. I had to grind it up and put in cheese. I bought Heartgard this time and she ate it right up, no problem. I'm so happy.

What is Dog Heartgard Chewables?

Heartgard Chewables are a flavored treatment for dogs given once a month to prevent heartworms. Heartgard Chewables require a prescription from your veterinarian.

Looking to also control and treat roundworms and hookworms? Use Heartgard Plus Chewables.

For:

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

Benefits:

  • Highly effective in preventing heartworms
  • A convenient and tasty chewable for easy administration
  • Mess-free Smart Shield applicator simplifies application
  • Delicious beef flavor that most dogs will eat

How It Works:

Heartgard prevents heartworm disease by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae for a month after infection.

Cautions:

Can cause sensitivities in herding dog breeds. It is important that you give your pet this preventative every month. If you miss more than two monthly doses, we recommend calling your vet before continuing the medication. Also, note that side effects are rare at the recommended heartworm prevention dose. Higher doses in dogs may cause tremors, dilated pupils, loss of body weight, and death. Side effects in cats include agitation, loss of appetite, staggering, dilated pupils, tremors, blindness and disorientation.

Brand Name:

Heartgard Chewable (Merial)

Generic Name:

Ivermectin

What is the most important information I should know about Heartgard Chewables:

Heartgard Chewable is a prescription medication available for dogs as beef flavored chewable tablets. The usual dose of Heartgard Chewable for dogs up to 25 pounds is 68mcg (blue box), for dogs 26-50 pounds is 136mcg (green box) and for dogs 51-100 pounds is 272mcg (brown box).

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to Heartgard, ivermectin, or to beef.

How should this medication be given:

Give Heartgard exactly as directed by the veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Heartgard chewable tablets must be chewed. They should not be swallowed whole. 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 the animal is off Heartgard Chewables 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 Heartgard chewable at room temperature. Do not remove the chew from its wrapper until ready to give the medicine. Keep this medication away from children and pets. In addition, Dog Heartgard Chewables has shown a wide margin of safety at the recommended dose level in dogs including pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs and puppies aged 6 or more weeks.

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 happens if I overdose the pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include vomiting, diarrhea and lack of coordination in dogs.

What should I avoid while giving Heartgard to my pet:

To help with compliance and not missing a monthly dose, use the handy red heart reminder stickers included with the medication.

What are the possible side effects of Heartgard:

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