Heartgard Plus vs. Interceptor

Comparison between Heartgard Plus and Interceptor

Chewables and tablets are the most common way to treat your pes from heartworm and other intestinal parasites. However, multiple products are available in the market, and you need to understand how this product works.

Heartgard Plus is flavored and chewable, protecting your dog from heartworm, hookworm, and roundworm. Interceptor comes in a flavored tablet, protecting your pets from heartworm and controlling roundworms, hookworm, and whipworms in dogs.

You should always keep in mind the weight and age of your pet before choosing ant treatment for your cat and dog, whether it is nursing or pregnant.

Heartgard Plus is safe for puppies and dogs at the age of six weeks, and there is no minimum weight required. In addition, it is safe to use on pregnant and lactating dogs.

Interceptor is safe for kittens and cats at the age of six weeks and has a minimum weight of 1.5 lbs (0.7 kg) and for puppies and dogs at the age of four weeks with a minimum body weight of 2 lbs (0.9 kg). In addition, the interceptor is safe to use in pregnant, breeding, and lactating cats.

If the pet gets heartworm, it can be tough to treat, so prevention is better than cure. Here is our comparison of the leading brand of heartworm preventatives.
