Rated 4 out of 5 by from works good, no problems I have 3 Great Pyrenees that I give these to. Have always have negative tests. And no side effects. However, they HATE the taste and the pills have to be shoved in. Tried putting it in cheese, peanut butter...nothing works!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from hasn't killed the worms We decided to go with the most expensive and effective wormer according to our vet. Our dog doesn't really like them but eats them. She started on 6-29-2020. Her 2nd dose was 8-2-2020. As of now, 8-24-2020, she still has live worms in her poop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have always given my dogs in the past this medication for preventing heart worms and different types of worms! I never had an issue. Honestly, each dog is different and I know some dogs may have a reaction to this medication and others not. I have had all different dog breeds, small/large and all were fine. My GSD loves the flavor and never has side effects. I started her on this at 6 months of age. If your pup doesn't like the taste, try marshmallow! Sticks to the treat and it is safe for them to eat unless they have an allergy to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor taste I have 3 dogs . Two of the dogs wouldn’t eat voluntarily the chews are big and hard to crush to put in food the only way was to shove it down throat and this medicine needs to be chewed this medicine should come in topical form it’s a good product if your animal will chew

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dog loves and stays healthy! I've been using this with my 5 year old black lab mix for a year now. She sits for it like it's a really special treat! Just took her to the vet and she tested negative for heartworm and her fecal test was clean. No side effects noticed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend Vet switched our pups to this meds - our french bulldog started having sezuires within 24 hours of taking it. She's never had a problem with meds before, her brothers and sisters have never had a problem and no history of sezuires from parents. By far the scariest thing I've ever witnessed!

Questions

I can’t get the dog to swallow the chew pill. 

Asked by: LynG
Thank you for your question. Interceptor Plus should be administered in a manner that encourages your dog to chew, rather than swallow whole. You may break or crush the chewable into pieces and feed them to your dog, making sure your dog consumes the complete dose.

How long does it take for interceptor to absorb? I chopped up and fed my dog the interceptor chewable. About an hour later, after eating a rawhide-type treat and a little bit of dog food, she threw up..I did not see the interceptor in her vomit.

Asked by: Megan
Thank you for your question. If your fur baby vomits within 1 hour, you would need to re-dose if after 1 hour, enough medication was absorbed to be effective.

My vet will not give me a prescription for  this heart medication, and he stopped selling it, what can I do!

Asked by: Jayne
In many states, veterinarians are required by law to provide a written prescription if asked. Check your state laws to see if that is the case in your state.
