Heartgard Plus Chewables Brown - 6 Pack
What is Heartgard Plus?
Heartgard Plus Chewables is a monthly meaty chew used for the prevention of heartworm disease and for the control of roundworms and hookworms in dogs.
Dogs (6 weeks of age or older and no weight requirement)
• Considered the most tasty heartworm chewable tablet (beef flavor)
• Effectively controls heartworms, roundworms & hookworms
• Only given once a month
How it works:
Heartgard Plus contains ivermectin, a broad-spectrum antiparasitic medication used to prevent heartworms. Heartgard Plus also contains Pyrantel Pamoate, an anthelminthic, used to prevent roundworms and hookworms.
Directions for Use
Heartgard (Ivermectin) is given once a month year round for the prevention of heartworm disease. The usual dose of ivermectin in dogs up to 25 lb is 68mcg – 1 tablet from blue pack, for 26-50 lb is 136mcg – 1 tablet from green pack and for 51-100 lb is 272mcg – 1 tablet from brown pack. Dogs over 100 lb are given a combination of the tablets.
This medication should not be used in animals allergic to it. Heartworm testing should be performed prior to the start of prevention therapy. If the animal is off ivermectin for 6 months or less, start the medication and test after 6 months since microfilaria, which take 6 months to mature, may result in a positive test result.
Possible Side Effects
The side effects of ivermectin are rare at the recommended dosage. Heartgard Tablets has a wide margin of safety for all sizes and breeds of dogs. It is approved for use in puppies as young as 6 weeks, small dogs regardless of weight, pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs, and Collies.

My vet uses and recommends this product which I have bought from Discount Pet Medication multiple times. This company provides a savings and offers various options to order and save. It’s more cost effective for me to buy here, internationally, than through my vet or other companies. And, this item works and have never had any issues. My dogs consume this without disguising it in a treat.
I have 2 Great Danes who require 2 of the Heartguard chewables per month and 1 Afghan Hound who requires one. It's normally very expensive per month to pay full price to protect my 3 fur babies. They also love the flavor - they consider them dog treats.
So glad to have found Discount Pet Meds! Can’t beat the prices!!!
Wonderful price. Can’t beat ordering from them. The savings are incredibly
Always very pleased with all the products that Discount Pet Medication sells too me. Prompt shipping and the prices are more than fair!!
We're very please with the freshness of the products we ordered. We knew going in that it would take a bit of time for our order to be delivered to our US address. We were right. We ordered on November 21st and we received the order on December 14th. All good. We'll be ordering again in the future.
I love the discount price and my four dogs absolutely love the taste.
It seemed too good to be true, but I have absolutely no complaints so far. I ordered Heartgard here twice; first time it took over 3 weeks to arrive, 2nd time less than a week! I recommend this business every chance i get, but I just make sure to mention that it's best to order it a month before you run out. The shipping speed is understandably variable.
I have ordered this product for my lab several times. She loves the chewable and it is alot less expensive than other pet stores or my vet. We have always had a negative testing on the heartworm and I will continue to order from Discount Pet.
I’ve been using Heartguard for years. It does appeal to my huskies so they chew the cake like pill and they don’t have any side effects. I feel like they are protected and their heart worm test is always negative, so I will continue to use the product. I like these better than pills and the price I pay from Entirely Pets can’t be beat.
