Interceptor Plus by Novartis is a palatable once-a-month chewable tablet for the prevention and control of heartworms and intestinal worms in dogs. Available to dogs and puppies weighing two pounds or greater and six weeks of age and older.

Interceptor Plus is a broad spectrum parasiticide that prevents heartworm disease (Dirfilaria immitis) in dogs as well as treats and controls roundworms (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina), whipworms (Trichuris vulpis), and adult tapeworms (Echinococcus granulosus, Dipylidium canium, Taenia pisiformis).

  • Milbemycin oxime interferes with nerve transmission in heartworms, roundworms, hookworms and whipworms.
  • Praziquantel causes muscle spasm in tapeworms which allows intestinal enzymes to attack and disintegrate the worm. It kills all intestinal forms of tapeworm except for Spirometra spp, which requires a higher than standard dose.

Dosage and Administration
The tasty chicken-flavored chewable tablet may be offered to the dog by hand or added to a small amount of dog food. Administer once a month on the same date and for at least 6 months after exposure to mosquitoes. If the dose is overdue by less than 15 days, treat immediately and resume monthly dosing.
