Good product but testing not needed if given on time. Either their claims are false or the vet is gouging me for a unneeded visit. They work together

What is Tri-Heart Plus?

Tri-Heart Plus Ivermectin/Pyrantel for dogs is a heartworm preventative that also controls roundworms and hookworms. Tri-Heart Plus requires a prescription from your veterinarian. Its active ingredients are Ivermectin and Pyrantel and it comes in an easy-to-administer tablet. Tri-Heart Plus is considered to be the #1 generic heartworm preventative recommended by veterinarians.

For:

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

Benefits:

  • Tasty flavored chewable tablets
  • Easy to administer
  • Small, easy-to-chew tablet for smaller or finicky dogs
  • Given once a month

Note: This product is a hard tablet. If your pet will not eat the flavored tablet like a treat, you can mix it intact with a small amount of food or place it in the back of your dog's mouth (far enough back in order to leave no other option but for the tablet to get swallowed). Only attempt this if you're comfortable with the procedure. Some dogs may get upset with this forceful handling which can possibly cause the tablet to come back up and be expelled.

How does Tri-Heart Plus work?

Tri-Heart Plus is an anthelmintic (dewormer). The ingredient pyrantel pamoate is used to treat and control roundworms and hookworms in dogs.

Cautions:

Can cause sensitivities in herding dog breeds. The safe use of this drug has not been evaluated in pregnant or lactating bitches. Store Tri-Heart Plus at room temperature. Do not remove the tablet from its wrapper until ready to give to your pet. Keep this medication away from children and pets.

Brand Name:

Tri-Heart Plus (Merck)

Generic Name:

Ivermectin, Pyrantel

What is the most important thing I should know about Tri-Heart Plus?

Tri-Heart Plus is a prescription medication available as flavored chewable tablets. The usual dose of Tri-Heart Plus in dogs up to 25 lbs is 68 mcg/57 mg (Blue box), for dogs 26-50 lbs is 136 mcg/114 mg (Green box) and for dogs 51-100 lbs is 272 mcg/227 mg (Brown box). Dogs over 100 lbs are given a combination of tablets.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Tri-Heart Plus to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to the medication.

How should Tri-Heart Plus be given?

Give Tri-Heart Plus exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. 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 your pet is off Tri-Heart Plus 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.

Ivermectin/Pyrantel is available in 3 sizes for 1 monthly dose: up to 25 lbs, 26-50 lbs & 51-100 lbs

What are the potential side effects of Tri-Heart Plus?

Side effects of Tri-Heart Plus are rare at the recommended heartworm prevention dose, but may include lethargy, limpness, salivation, shaking, diarrhea, decreased appetite, licking lips, and belching. Higher doses in dogs may cause tremors, dilated pupils, loss of body weight, or death.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of Tri-Heart Plus?

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 Tri-Heart Plus?

If you suspect that your pet has received an overdose of Tri-Heart Plus, consult your veterinarian or emergency veterinary clinic immediately.

What should I avoid while giving Tri-Heart Plus to my pet?

Because humans can contract hookworms 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. To prevent reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.

What other drugs will affect Tri-Heart Plus?

Do not give Tri-Heart Plus if your pet is already being given another heartworm medication.

Tri-Heart Plus Directions:

  • Give Tri-Heart Plus Flavored Chewables once a month on the same day of each month year-round.
  • Tri-Heart Plus Flavored Chewables can be given by hand, mixed intact with a small amount of food, or placed in the back of your dog's mouth for forced swallowing.
  • Watch your dog 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 the chewable from its wrapper until ready to give to your pet.
