Heartgard Plus Chewables for Dogs 26 - 50 lbs - Green 6 Pack
What is Heartgard Plus?
Heartgard Plus Chewables is a monthly meaty chew used for the prevention of heartworm disease and for the control of roundworms and hookworms in dogs.
Dogs (6 weeks of age or older and no weight requirement)
• Considered the most tasty heartworm chewable tablet (beef flavor) • Effectively controls heartworms, roundworms & hookworms • Only given once a month
How it works:
Heartgard Plus contains ivermectin, a broad-spectrum antiparasitic medication used to prevent heartworms. Heartgard Plus also contains Pyrantel Pamoate, an anthelminthic, used to prevent roundworms and hookworms.
Directions for Use
Heartgard (Ivermectin) is given once a month year round for the prevention of heartworm disease. The usual dose of ivermectin in dogs up to 25 lb is 68mcg – 1 tablet from blue pack, for 26-50 lb is 136mcg – 1 tablet from green pack and for 51-100 lb is 272mcg – 1 tablet from brown pack. Dogs over 100 lb are given a combination of the tablets.
This medication should not be used in animals allergic to it. Heartworm testing should be performed prior to the start of prevention therapy. If the animal is off ivermectin for 6 months or less, start the medication and test after 6 months since microfilaria, which take 6 months to mature, may result in a positive test result.
Possible Side Effects
The side effects of ivermectin are rare at the recommended dosage. Heartgard Tablets has a wide margin of safety for all sizes and breeds of dogs. It is approved for use in puppies as young as 6 weeks, small dogs regardless of weight, pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs, and Collies.
My dogs have continued to gobble these up. I have four yorkies and we buy the large dose and divide them up. Even though they have loss interest in some treats, they still like these Heartgard plus chews.
