Heartgard Plus Chewables for Dogs up to 25 lbs - Blue 12 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.

Heartgard up to 25 pounds
We buy this for our three Shih tzus. They all eat it although we usually break it into smaller pieces and give it to them. So far it’s working well.

It’s my 3rd year of buying these products for my 3 dogs. It’s save me a lot of money buying from them, you don’t need prescription from vets plus savings of not paying for annual test for heart-worm.

We use Heartgard exclusively for all our dogs
We've been using Heartgard for more than 20 years with our dogs (cocker spaniels) and we have never had a problem. We live in Florida, and all kinds of bugs and pathogens are common. Never had a problem with anything being picked up by any of the animals and they are outdoors a lot. They love the taste, take the chews readily, and never have a problem with after effects.
