Dear Valued Client:
We have recently conducted a review of parasite control options for our patients. After a close comparison of approved veterinary products, our veterinarians have decided to recommend Interceptor® Plus (milbemycin oxime/praziquantel) for the prevention of heartworm disease and treatment and control of adult hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum), roundworms, whipworm and tapeworms in dogs.
We’d like to explain our decision.
Interceptor Plus is a monthly chew that protects against five dangerous threats to your dog.
Heartworms aren’t the only parasite that pose a danger to your pet. Your dog may also be at risk for common intestinal parasites, including roundworms, hookworms, whipworms and tapeworms. These parasites can cause diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, and in some cases, even death.
It is safe for puppies and small dogs
Interceptor Plus is safe for puppies as young as six weeks, and for dogs weighing as little as two pounds. There’s no need to change medications if your dog grows larger or as they get older. For these reasons, Interceptor Plus is our choice for preventing heartworm disease and controlling
these intestinal parasites.
As we bring in Interceptor Plus, our hospital will begin to slowly phase out Heartgard Plus.
Our responsibility as veterinarians is to provide pets with products we believe are the best choices for their individual needs. As a responsible and loving pet owner, we know you want the best for your pet.
Together, we can help pets live longer, healthier, higher-quality lives.
