Interceptor Flavor Tabs - Heartworm Prevention

interseptor lgHeartworms can be deadly to your pet, but InterceptorĀ® (milbemycin oxime) Flavor TabsĀ® will kill heartworms before they have a chance to harm him.

Almost a million dogs in the U.S. are infected with heartworms each year. Adult heartworms can cause heart and lung damage, even death.

Prevention is key.    Using a heartworm preventative like Interceptor Flavor Tabs on the same date each month is the best way to protect your pet against this life threatening disease.

One mosquito bite is all it takes to infect an unprotected dog.

Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes year-round and are found in dogs that live indoors and outdoors.

Interceptor Flavor Tabs kill heartworm larvae before clinical signs of disease occur.

ALWAYS have your dog tested for heartworms before starting a preventive regimen. Giving a preventive to a dog that is already heartworm-positive can cause further complications.

If your dog tests positive for heartworms, your veterinarian will discuss a treatment plan with you.
