Product Details

Spend endless hours outside with your dog knowing that he/she is protected against heartworm disease and other intestinal parasites with Heartgard Plus Chewable Tablets for dogs 51-100 lbs.

What is Heartgard Plus? Heartgard Plus contains a combination of worming medications ( Ivermectin and Pyrantel pamoate) that helps to control and treat certain intestinal parasites (roundworms and hookworms) and prevent heartworm in dogs.

What are the Benefits of Heartgard Plus? Protects your dog from potentially deadly heartworm disease. Treats and controls roundworms and hookworms which can cause disease in both pets and humans. Delicious beef- flavored chewable makes administration easy.

Formulated for: dogs and puppies (older than 6 weeks) and considered safe for pregnant/breeding females.

How is this medication given? Administered once a month, Heartgard Plus is given orally as a beef-flavored chewable. It is generally recommended to give this medication on a year-round basis but check with your veterinarian regarding his/her recommendation.

A blood test to check for heartworm disease is necessary before starting Heartgard Plus and may be necessary if more than one monthly dose is skipped so check with your veterinarian regarding his/her recommendations.

Only give this medication to the dog for which it has been prescribed. Do not give a double dose of medication if a dose has been missed.

This medication should not be swallowed whole and should be chewed. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose.

How does this medication work? The combination of worming medication in Heartgard Plus prevents heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) in dogs, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. It also controls and treats certain intestinal parasites such as hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, A. brasiliense, and Uncinaria stenocephala) and roundworms (ascarids - Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina).

Ivermectin interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of immature heartworms (larvae). Pyrantel pamoate interrupts the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of intestinal worms.

What results can I expect? Heartgard Plus should kill any heartworm larvae (immature heartworms) that your dog has been exposed to in the preceding month. Hookworms and roundworms can also be controlled and treated simultaneously with this medication.

What form(s) does Heartgard Plus come in? Heartgard Plus for large dogs 51-100 lbs is a chewable tablet that contains beef flavoring.

This item is a great replacement option for Interceptor, which has been discontinued by the manufacturer
SKU: RX190

I have used this medication for decades on three different dogs - none of whom ever contracted heartworm. I live in Upstate NY across from protected wetlands - mosquito heaven. They all loved the taste and looked excited as if they were receiving a special treat. Pet360 had the best pricing, by far, and made it so easy to order.

I am satisfied with HeartGard Plus, but ended up cancelling my order. The website ask for vet contact information. Then, after accepting my order and charging my credit card, I was sent an e-mail indicating that I would have to get the prescription from my vet and mail it in to PetFoodDirect. Not worth the dollars saved to have to go through this process.

      Comments about Heartgard Plus Chewable Tablets for Dogs 51-100 lbs:

      I have 4 German Shepherds on Heartgard. They have been on it every since I got them as puppies. During a recent vet visit, I was told 2 of them have heartworms. My vet contacted the manufacturer to see if they would pay for treatments. They refused. I will no longer be using Heartgard for my pets.
