Product Info

What is Interceptor?

Interceptor Flavor Tabs are a palatable once-a-month tablet that prevents heartworm disease, controls adult hookworms, and removes and controls adult roundworms and whipworm infections in dogs. Interceptor for cats is the only oral monthly preventative that protects against heartworms and removes adult roundworms and adult hookworms. Interceptor requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Dogs (4 weeks of age and weighing over 2 lbs), Cats (6 weeks of age and weighing over 1.5 lbs)

Benefits:

  • Given once a month
  • Easy to administer
  • Broad spectrum activity

How does Interceptor work?

Interceptor Flavor Tabs eliminate the tissue stage of heartworm larvae and the adult stage of hookworm, roundworm, and in dogs, whipworm infestations. The anthelmintic activity (destroying parasitic worms) of the active ingredient milbemycin oxime is believed to be a result of interfering with the invertebrates' neurotransmission.

Cautions:

Side effects of Interceptor are rare, but some animals may show signs of depression, drowsiness, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, hypersalivation, seizures, and weakness. If these or other symptoms develop, contact your veterinarian. Since humans can contract hookworm and roundworm from animals, you should maintain good personal hygiene. To prevent reinfection, cleaning up stool daily is recommended. Don't give your pet Interceptor if you are already administering another heartworm preventative.

Brand Name:

Interceptor (Elanco Animal Health)

Generic Name:

Milbemycin Oxime (mil-beh-my-sin ox-eem)

What is the most important information I should know about Interceptor?

Interceptor is a prescription medication FDA approved for use in dogs and cats. Interceptor is available as artificial beef (derived from pork and soy protein) flavored chewable tablets. The usual dose of Interceptor for dogs 2 to 10 pounds is 2.3mg (brown box), 11 to 25 pounds is 5.75mg (green box), 26 to 50 pounds is 11.5mg (yellow box) and 51 to 100 pounds is 23mg (white box) given once a month year round. The usual dose of Interceptor for cats 1.5 to 6 pounds is 5.75mg (green box), 6.1 to 12 pounds is 11.5mg (yellow box) and 12.1 to 25 lbs is 23mg (white box) given once a month year round.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Interceptor to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to Interceptor or milbemycin.

How should Interceptor be given?

Give Interceptor exactly as directed by the veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Heartworm testing should be performed prior to the start of prevention therapy. If your pet is off Interceptor 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 Interceptor at room temperature. Do not remove the tablet from its wrapper until ready to give the medicine. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Interceptor is safe for pregnant or lactating pets at a normal dose level.

What are the possible side effects of Interceptor?

Side effects of Interceptor are rare although some animals may exhibit depression, drowsiness, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, hypersalivation, seizures and weakness. If these or other symptoms develop contact your veterinarian.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Interceptor?

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 Interceptor?

Contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid while giving Interceptor to my pet?

Because humans can contract hookworm and roundworm from animals, it is important to maintain good personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on your pet and in the household. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.

What other drugs will affect Interceptor?

While Interceptor is safe to use in dogs at risk for MDRI-allele mutation (Australian Shepherds, Collies, Shelties, etc.), unless tested normal, caution is advised if your pet is also being given amiodarone (Cordarone), azole antifungals such as ketoconazole, carvedilol (Coreg), cyclosporine (Atopica), diltiazem (Cardizem), erythromycin (Ery-Tabs) or clarithromycin (Biaxin), quinidine, spironolactone (Aldactone), tamoxifen, and verapamil (Calan). Do not give Interceptor to your pet if your pet is already taking an alternate heartworm medication.

How to Use

Interceptor Directions:

  • Give Interceptor Flavor Tabs once a month on the same day of each month year round.
  • Interceptor Flavor Tabs can be given to dogs and cats.
  • Watch pet closely following dosing to be sure the entire dose has been swallowed. If it is not completely swallowed, give one more full recommended dose as soon as possible.
Tip:

Do not remove from its wrapper until ready to give to pet.

If the dose changes for a dog for it's weight how is the same tablet for a 100 lb dog also good for a 20 lb cat but too much for a 40 lb dog? This is making me very uncomfortable in purchasing for my cats.

Asked by: CatL
Cats, being a completely different species, take a much higher dose of this medication than dogs do. A dose difference for different species is quite common with many medications. For example, a 50 pound dog can take 50 mg of Benedryl twice daily without getting drowsy but if I, a 200 pound human should the same amount would be sleeping it off for the next 12 hours. LOL! Feel confident that the recommended dose of Interceptor for your cat is purr-fectly safe.

my 4lb yorkie gets a high liver enzyme reading if I give him Heartgard plus I think it is because the smallest dose is to high in heartgard. Can I give him interceptor next month instead of heartgard or do I need to wait? Have any of you switched from HG

Asked by: rosevincent
Many people have switched from HeartGard to Interceptor (and vice versa) for various reasons. In your case, it is worth trying a single dose on your little Yorkie next month as the active ingredient is completely different but make sure you and your vet monitor him for that increase in liver enzymes. There are other alternatives to try, such as Advantage Multi and Revolution, in case your little one still has problems.

What is the expiration date on the interceptor for a 26-50lb dog? I give it to her every 6 weeks not 4 and don't want it to expire... thank you! Michele and Roxy the Aussie 

Asked by: Roxys mom
Most products have an expiration date of over a year, but I do recommend that you reconsider how often you give the Interceptor as your dog is not being fully protected against heartworms giving it every 6 weeks, nor, should your dog become infected with heartworms during the 2 weeks each month it is not protected, will the manufacturer guarantee it's product and pay for treatment which can run several hundreds of dollars and is not risk free.

My dog hates taking any form of heartworm protection, I can only give them to her orally. How big are this pills? Will they be easy to swallow of will i have to cut them into pieces?

Asked by: kcalta
These pills are not very big. They are also flavored chewables to make it easier for pets to eat. They can be cut up/crushed and given with food if that will help. Just make sure the pet gets the full dose and swallows it, otherwise you will need to try again. Hope this helps.

We have a new puppy and she's 3 months old. Our vet gave us a sample of Interceptor Flavor Tabs for puppies (brown box/ for 2-10 lbs). I want to buy more for the coming months but I can't seem to find one for puppies. ??

Asked by: Rita
The puppy and adult Interceptor are the same medication and is dosed by weight. Since your puppy is still growing, purchasing a 6 month supply at her current weight might not be the most economical since she may outgrow a smaller size before the 6 months is finished. Our veterinarian recommends purchasing one month at a time based upon the weight until an adult weight is reached. Many veterinarians sell heartworm prevention in a single dose versus having to purchase 6 months on-line. Check with your veterinarian at your puppy's next visit, which should be a month after the last visit/last vaccination date (they need boosters every 3-4 weeks until they are 4 months old).

Asked by: Jazzy
You should use the Interceptor for 2-10 pounds to prevent heartworms and deworm for hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms. If you want to add flea control, using Trifexis 5-10 pound would be your best product, IMO.

Since all heartworm preventatives kill the larval stages acquired during the past month, I recommend that you give your dog the Interceptor table during the first week after you get back home from your trip.

Asked by: Samm
Interceptor is a very safe product but there is always a chance your puppy can not tolerate it well.

My dogs get the sentinel tabs for heartworms and then getting the reg. meds for the other worms. Will this work for all 4 worms and do I still give them both meds?

Asked by: eliz
Sentinel not only prevents heartworms, but also deworms monthly for roundworms, hookworms and whipworms. Any additional dewormings are usually unnecessary unless the dog is reinfecting itself with a heavy load of parasites. The only parasite you may have an issue with is tapeworms, which are carried by fleas. Sentimel sterilizes fleas so they can't reproduce but if your dog swallows an adult flea it picked up anywhere, it may still get tapeworms. Sentinel Spectrum will do the same as Sentinel but also deworms for tapeworms every month.

Difference between Interceptor and Interceptor Plus? Does Interceptor/Interceptor Plus also prevent/treat flea/ticks? If I switch from Heartguard Plus & Nexgard, am I losing any protection?

Asked by: krystaldesigns
Interceptor Plus also protects against tapeworms, while Interceptor does not. You are not losing any protection if you switch from Heartgard to Interceptor Plus. In fact, Interceptor Plus gives you added protection against both whip worms and tapeworms, unlike Heartgard. However, you will still need to use NexGard or another flea and tick preventative since Interceptor Plus does not protect against fleas and ticks.

My dogs get the sentinel tabs for heartworms and then getting the reg. meds for the other worms. Will this work for all 4 worms and do I still give them both meds?

Asked by: eliz
Sentinel not only prevents heartworms, but also deworms monthly for roundworms, hookworms and whipworms. Any additional dewormings are usually unnecessary unless the dog is reinfecting itself with a heavy load of parasites. The only parasite you may have an issue with is tapeworms, which are carried by fleas. Sentimel sterilizes fleas so they can't reproduce but if your dog swallows an adult flea it picked up anywhere, it may still get tapeworms. Sentinel Spectrum will do the same as Sentinel but also deworms for tapeworms every month.

Asked by: Jodi
Your Yorkie should be fine; however, make sure to monitor them for side effects or changes in behavior and contact your veterinarian right away if you notice anything different. Side effects of Interceptor are rare although some animals may exhibit depression, drowsiness, vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, hypersalivation, seizures and weakness. If these or other symptoms develop contact your veterinarian.

Difference between Interceptor and Interceptor Plus? Does Interceptor/Interceptor Plus also prevent/treat flea/ticks? If I switch from Heartguard Plus & Nexgard, am I losing any protection?

Asked by: krystaldesigns
Interceptor Plus also protects against tapeworms, while Interceptor does not. You are not losing any protection if you switch from Heartgard to Interceptor Plus. In fact, Interceptor Plus gives you added protection against both whip worms and tapeworms, unlike Heartgard. However, you will still need to use NexGard or another flea and tick preventative since Interceptor Plus does not protect against fleas and ticks.
