Heartgard Plus

 

HeartGard Plus is undeniably the most popular medication specifically meant for prevention of heartworms in dogs. It is very important that you do all you can to ensure that your dog is free of heartworm, which is a very serious disease that usually affects the canine family. If not prevented or properly treated, it can become very fatal. But when matters of heartworms are concerned, prevention is obviously the best medication. This is exactly what Heartgard Plus does - controlling and preventing hookworms and roundworms that can be potentially deadly to your pets. It even goes further to treat heartworm infections that are already existent.


What are the benefits of Heartburn Plus?

  • It provides round the clock protection for your dogs from deadly heartworm diseases.
  • It’s effective in controlling roundworms and hookworms that can result to disease in both pets and humans
  • It’s chewable and deliciously beef-flavored which makes it easy to administer to your dogs

How does it work?

The primary function of Heartgard Plus is to eliminate immature hookworms that have found their way into the dog’s body. It goes in to treat intestinal infections with adult roundworms and hookworms. Heartgard Plus is administered for the purpose of treating and controlling roundworms ( Toxascaris lenina, Toxocara canis) and hookworms (Uncinaria stenocephala, Brasiliense, and Ancylostoma caninum). These worms get into the body mainly through the transmission of mosquitoes. Once administered correctly, the medication goes into the body and destroys the immature form of the heartworm.


There are 2 active ingredients in Heartgard Plus: pyrantel pamoate and ivermectin. The former interferes with the nerve transmission of the parasite, paralysis and eventually kills the intestinal worms. The latter equally interferes with the nerve transmission but goes to incapacitate and kill the heartworms (larvae).


Why is Heartgard Plus the most popular among all other heartworm medications?

Heartgard has the reputation of being the only FDA approved preventive that offers a distinctive combination soft chew and real beef that dogs love a lot. It has been properly produced to remove the difficulties encountered when giving medications to dogs. No matter the effectiveness of the medication, if the dog refuses to take, then the medication won’t do its work. But the case is very different with Heartguard Plus as most dogs love the taste of the product which can be chewed like real beef.


Because of its flavor taste you’ll not have issues giving it to your dog as most dogs will normally accept it as a treat and enjoy the taste when chewing. You should administer the chewable in such a way that will encourage the dog to chew, instead of swallowing. But there are some dogs that usually swallow treats, so it will be better to break Heartgard Plus into bits for such dogs. This will enable proper breakdown of the substance and complete digestion. However, it is very important to make sure that the complete dose is consumed by the dog. After administering Heartguard Plus, ensure that you stay around for a couple of minutes to be rest assured that the dose is not rejected or lost. If not completely taken, administer another full dose as quickly as possible.


Heartgard Plus should be given on a monthly basis, possible on a fix date each month. However, caution should be taken when giving Heartgard Plus to your dogs. If you notice your dog is allergic, avoid administering the medication. Also, heartworm testing should be done before the prevention therapy begins.


What are its Possible Side Effects?

Heartgard Plus does not have any side effects when the recommended dosage is adhered to. It is very safe for all breeds and sizes of dogs and can be used on Collies, stud dogs, breeding or pregnant bitches, small dogs of all weights, and puppies as young as six weeks.
