What are Heartgard Plus Chewables?

Heartgard Plus Chewables provide protection against heartworms, and treat and control roundworms and hookworms. These tasty chewables are made with real beef, making them easy to give your dog like a treat. Heartgard Plus Chewables are given monthly and require a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (6+ weeks of age, no weight requirement)

Benefits:

  • Effectively prevent heartworms
  • Treat and control roundworms & hookworms
  • Only given once a month
  • Delicious beef flavor makes them easy to administer

How do Heartgard Plus Chewables work?

Heartgard Plus Chewables contain ivermectin, a broad-spectrum antiparasitic medication used to prevent heartworms. They also contain Pyrantel Pamoate, an anthelminthic, used to prevent roundworms and hookworms.

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:

Heartgard Plus Chewables may cause sensitivities in herding dog breeds. Heartgard Plus Chewables should be chewed, not swallowed whole. The chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Make sure that your dog eats the entire dose. It is important to give your dog Heartgard Plus Chewables every month, year round. Do not skip winter months, as your dog may become infected if left unprotected. If you miss more than two months of dosage, please consult with your veterinarian as to whether to continue medication.

Brand Name:

Heartgard Plus (Merial), Iverhart Plus (Virbac), Tri-Heart Plus (Intervet)

Generic Name:

Ivermectin, pyrantel pamoate

What is the most important thing I should know about Heartgard Plus Chewables?

The active ingredients in Heargard Plus Chewables are ivermectin and pyrantel pamoate. Use with caution, as 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 Heartgard Plus 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. In addition, Heartgard Plus Chewables have shown a wide margin of safety at the recommended dose level in dogs including pregnant or breeding dogs, stud dogs and puppies aged 6 or more weeks.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Heartgard Plus Chewables to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to the medication, any of its individual ingredients, or to beef.

How should Heartgard Plus Chewables be given?

Give Heartgard Plus Chewables exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions, ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Heartgard Plus Chewables must be chewed. They should not be swallowed whole.

What are the potential side effects of Heartgard Plus Chewables?

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

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Heartgard Plus Chewables?

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

What happens if I overdose my pet on Heartgard Plus Chewables?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment.

What should I avoid while giving Heartgard Plus Chewables to my pet?

Because humans can contract hookworm 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 or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.

What other drugs will affect Heartgard Plus Chewables?

Do not give Heartgard Plus Chewables to your pet if he or she is already taking another heartworm medication.

Customer Reviews
Heartgard Plus Chewables is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 1280.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can you help/ I just received my order. It came while I was at a work event, so my dog walker put it on the hall table. When I returned home a few hours later, my dog Callie had chewed up the box and eaten all 6 of the heart worm meds. Luckily she did not eat any of the frontline_-only one of those was slightly punctured. We called an emergency vet and Callie is ok, thank goodness. But I wondered if you could replace at a discount. She won't need heartworm mess til late January, but she will need them eventually. I have asked my son and the dog walker to always put Ned's up high in the future. Please let me know? I can send a photo. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I’d never stop giving my two dogs their Heartgard Plus Chewables!! It works great, & they love the taste!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to give For the most part my bulldog has no problem eating her chewable every month. She is a tad picky with food though so sometimes we have to hide it in her food

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Break it up first My fur baby looove the flavor of her heartgaurd we have to break it in to smaller pieces so she will actually chew it rather than inhale it in one bite. She is an older gal and has become a little picky with what she eats but she has no issues with taking her medication. I’m very pleased because I’d like to keep her around for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartgard fan My Rotties love heartgard. They look forward to taking them. They think it is a treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised My dog doesn't get heart worms, so it works like it says it does. They say it's beef flavored (I wouldn't know since I haven't tried it) so she eats them right up without protest (I usually use it as a reward after applying flea and tick juice because she hates that). Now if it could just teach her how to use the dog door...

How do dogs pick up heartworm or hookeorm

Asked by: Edie
Thank you for your question. Dogs get heartworm disease via a bite from an infected mosquito. The microfilariae, or baby worms, spread and mature within the dog. Dogs get infected with hookworms through contact and penetration of the skin and through the dog eating the larvae when they ingest dirt or during their routine licking (cleaning).

What weight should I pick if my dog is still a puppy? He’s a pit bull and will grow larger but he’s only 8 weeks and very small at the moment 

Asked by: Alexis96
Since your puppy will be growing for the next 6 months, I recommend that you purchase single doses from your veterinarian for his current weight for each month. That will keep you from either over-dosing your puppy or wasting money by having to give him multiple tablets once he outgrows a smaller dose. Once he reaches 50 pounds, than you should be able to purchase a 6 or 12 month supply of the 50-100 pound dose.

is this safe for my dog that has a chicken allergy?

Asked by: Crystal
Thank you for your question. The product does not contain chicken. However if your pet is also allergic to real beef ground , corn cob , citric acid and / or soy protein it would be best to seek an alternative heartworm preventative.

Are these meds always by weight or by surface!  I have two franchise; both weigh about 28 lbs.  I want to give the 1-25 lb meds.  One is less tolerant of any meds, or so it seems to me.  Is my instinct to give them the smaller dose dangerous?  

Asked by: hoff
Thank you for your question. The medication is to be administered based on your furry friends weight unless otherwise directed by a licensed veterinarian. As you mentioned one of your furry friends is less tolerant it is best to consult with your veterinarian to determine dosage.

Asked by: Shannon
The recommended dose for your size dog is 1 tablet each of Heartgard Plus brown 51-100 lbs and Heartgard Plus blue 1-25 lbs per month.

I have a Newfoundland whose weight fluctuates between 135-150. Instead of using a dose of one brown and one blue, can I use three doses of the blue? This way I can get a discount when I buy a 6 pack of the blue. 

Asked by: Carzz
No, three Heartgard Plus blue tablets is an inadequate dose for a dog of that size.
