Product Detail: Generic Heartgard Plus (Ivermectin & Pyrantel)

INDICATIONS

For use in dogs to prevent canine heartworm disease by eliminating the tissue stage of heartworm larvae (Dirofilaria immitis) for a month (30 days) after infection and for the treatment and control of ascarids (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina) and hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala, Ancylostoma braziliense).


DOSAGE
HeartVeil Plus should be administered orally at monthly intervals at the recommended minimum dose level of 6 mcg of ivermectin per kilogram (2.72 mcg/lb) and 5 mg of pyrantel (as pamoate salt) per kg (2.27 mg/lb) of body weight. The recommended dosing schedule for prevention of canine heartworm disease and for the treatment and control of ascarids and hookworms is as follows:
Dog Weight  Tablets              Ivermectin          Pyrantel
(Kg)               Per Month          Content              Content
Upto 11                1                 68 mcg                    57 mg
12 to 22                1                136 mcg                114 mg
23 to 45                1                272 mcg                227 mg

HeartVeil Plus is recommended for dogs 6 weeks of age and older.
For dogs over 100 lb (45kg) use the appropriate combination of these tablets.


ADMINISTRATION
Remove only one tablet at a time from the foil-backed blister card. Return the card with the remaining tablets to its box to protect the product from light. Because most dogs find HeartVeil Plus palatable, the product can be offered to the dog by hand. Alternatively, it may be added intact to a small amount of dog food. Tablets may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole.
Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes after administration to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the doses has been lost, re-dosing is recommended.
HeartVeil Plus should be given at monthly intervals during the period of the year when mosquitoes (vectors), potentially carrying infective heartworm larvae, are active. The initial dose must be given within a month (30 days) after the dog's first exposure to mosquitoes. The final dose must be given within a month (30 days) after the dog's last exposure to mosquitoes.
When replacing another heartworm preventive product in a heartworm disease preventive program, the first dose of HeartVeil Plus must be given within a month (30 days) of the last dose of the former medication.
If the interval between doses exceeds a month (30 days), the efficacy of ivermectin can be reduced. Therefore, for optimal performance, the chewable tablet must be given once a month on or about the same day of the month. If treatment is delayed, whether by a few days or many, immediate treatment with HeartVeil Plus  and resumption of the recommended dosing regimen minimizes the opportunity for the development of adult heartworms.
Monthly treatment with HeartVeil Plus also provides effective treatment and control of ascarids (T. canis, T. leonina) and hookworms (A. caninum, U. stenocephala, A. braziliense). Clients should be advised of measures to be taken to prevent reinfection with intestinal parasites.


EFFICACY
HeartVeil Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) Tablets, given orally using the recommended dose and regimen, are effective against the tissue larval stage of D. immitis for a month (30 days) after infection and, as a result, prevent the development of the adult stage.
HeartVeil Plus Tablets are also effective against canine ascarids (T. canis, T. leonina) and hookworms (A. caninum, U. stenocephala, A. braziliense).


PRECAUTIONS
All dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection before starting treatment with HeartVeil Plus which is not effective against adult D. immitis. Infected dogs must be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae before initiating a program with HeartVeil Plus.
While some microfilariae may be killed by the ivermectin in HeartVeil Plus at the recommended dose level, HeartVeil Plus is not effective for microfilariae clearance. A mild hypersensitivity-type reaction, presumably due to dead or dying microfilariae and particularly involving a transient diarrhea, has been observed in reported clinical trials with ivermectin alone after treatment of some dogs that have circulating microfilariae.
Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. In case of ingestion by humans, clients should be advised to contact a physician immediately. Physicians may contact a Poison Control Center for advice concerning cases of ingestion by humans.
Store between 68 °F-77 °F (20°-25°C). Excursions between 59°F-86°F (15°-30°C) are permitted. Protect product from light.


ADVERSE REACTIONS
In reported clinical field trials with HeartVeil Plus, vomiting or diarrhea within 24 hours of dosing was rarely observed (1.1% of administered doses). The following adverse reactions have been reported following the use of HeartVeil Plus: Depression/lethargy, vomiting, anorexia, diarrhea, mydriasis, ataxia, staggering, convulsions and hypersalivation.


SAFETY
Reported studies with ivermectin indicate that certain dogs of the Collie breed are more sensitive to the effects of ivermectin administered at elevated dose levels (more than 16 times the target use level) than dogs of other breeds. At elevated doses, sensitive dogs showed adverse reactions which included mydriasis, depression, ataxia, tremors, drooling, paresis, recumbency, excitability, stupor, coma and death. HeartVeil Plus demonstrated no signs of toxicity at 10 times the recommended dose (60 mcg/kg) in sensitive Collies.
Results of these trials and reported bioequivalence studies support the safety of HeartVeil Plus products in dogs, including Collies, when used as recommended.
HeartVeil Plus has shown a wide margin of safety at the recommended dose level in dogs, including pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs and puppies aged 6 or more weeks. In clinical trials, many commonly used flea collars, dips, shampoos, anthelmintics, antibiotics, vaccines and steroid preparations have been administered with HeartVeil Plus in a heartworm disease preventing program.
In one trial, where some pups had parvovirus, there was a marginal reduction in efficacy against intestinal nematodes, possibly due to a change in intestinal transit time.


How Supplied: HeartVeil Plus is available in three dosage strengths (See DOSAGE section) for dogs of different weights. Each strength comes in convenient cartons of  6 Chewable Tablets.

I have been using this product for over 15 years. Never have I had a positive heart worm test on my labradors. I will continue to use the product, as for finicky eaters, if peanut butter won't do the trick, it's your dime. I will use my savings on other things.

This is effective!! and I highly recommend this product it works just like the heartgard plus. The great about this is the money you can save. Name Brand of the Heartgard for small dogs 6pack is $27.95 wherein the generic version is only $13.95 that a $14 savings. I can buy another 6 pack to have it 12 months supply, but i won't do that. I'll just buy a 12 month supply for a small dog for only $25.95 instead of buying two 6 pack that sums to $27.90. Bottomline, this can save you alot!

Peanut butter never fails!

Anytime we feed our dogs a pill it gets covered in peanunt butter. All dogs take this with no problems. They range from a small Miniature Pinscher at 12 pounds, a miniature Beagle at 24 pounds, and three pit shepherd mixes ranging from 45 to 70 pounds. Peanut butter never fails, even our picky pris of a beagle takes it with no issue.

love the lower price at the same time I can keep my dog healthy. I have to open his mouth for him to swallow it, but he will do it. I will keep buying it. Thank you for keeping the cost down.

I am a senior and could not afford to keep my dogs on Hearworm meds if it were not for Pet Shed. A good product at a great price.

I have a very picky Chihuahua who wont even eat the expensive brand named ones... Instead of giving them a negative review, all you have to do is crush with a fork and add to something you know they like eating..10 Seconds :)

My dogs won' t chew these either, so I wrap them in cheese or peanut butter. Good for the price.

Dogs would not eat at all

My lab and pointer mix are pretty indiscriminate about what they eat. They tried chewing these tablets and immediately spit them out. Would not even attempt to eat again. Wasted my money.
