HeartGard Plus for dogs is a vet-recommended heartworm preventive treatment that also controls and treats various other worm infections. It is effective against immature stages of heartworm that is transmitted through a mosquito. It also treats and controls three species of hookworms and two species of roundworms. This monthly treatment has antiparasitic and anthelmintic properties that work against mixed parasitic infections. It comes in a real beef flavor which makes it highly palatable in taste for the dogs. This monthly treatment is one of the most recommended heartworm preventative treatments and it is safe and suitable for dogs 6 weeks of age and older as well as breeding and pregnant dogs.
How does it work?
Heartgard Plus contains two active ingredients Ivermectin and Pyrantel. It is an effective heartworm treatment for dogs that prevents heartworm disease by eliminating heartworm larvae and kills parasites by causing spastic muscle paralysis. These active chemicals control the way nerve impulses flow through the neurological system of the worm. This causes the parasite to become paralyzed and eventually die.
It should be noted that Heartgard Plus is only effective as a preventative for heartworm infection. You must first diagnose your dog for heartworm infection before administering any heartworm prevention product. If your dog has already been infected with heartworm, you should consult your veterinarian.

It is a reliable treatment to prevent heartworms as well as intestinal worms in dogs. There are no adverse reaction on my furry pal
I was looking for a branded product, that would work at my price. I found this Heartgard on Vet Supply with least price, so thought it to try. It is such a relief to have this product. My dog loves it, no fussing.
I give one Heartgard tablet each month to my Mac. He thinks it's a treat and starts wagging his tail when I take the tablet out. This is an effective treatment and there are no side effects from this.
Heartgard has always protected my furry pal from heartworms and he loves the taste of the chew. Thanks Vet Supply for giving great discounts and free shipping for the products I order.
