I use Iverhart Plus...the generic form of HeartGard Plus. It's cheaper that way. And with 6 dogs, I need cheaper!!

Nickel is using Interceptor (yes, we still have it …. for 5 more months). Then we will be switching to Iverhart Max.

ETA: Ask your vet if they have a puppy pack to let you try it out. Sometimes Petsmart or dog shows have free ones too. That way you can try and compare.

Why is Interceptor no more?

Does Plus mean it's for more than heartworm?

Thanks!

It's my understanding that problems voiced by consumers and the FDA regarding the Novartis plant in Lincoln, NE where Interceptor was manufactured led to the plant's closure (in 2011, I think.) Novartis has not announced when production might resume. Given the FDAs involvement, the closure could be lengthy. The production suspension left pet owners like me grabbing up the inventory on hand. As those supplies were exhausted, veterinarians began prescribing competing substitutes such as Heartgard, Trifexis, Advantage Multi, and Rimadyl.

HEARTGARD Plus helps prevent canine heartworm disease, and treats and controls roundworms and hookworms, too.

Interceptor. I looked at every single one. It gave me a headache to settle down on a brand. They are all a little different.

I buy at Costco. It is way cheaper. I forgot for how much I got it but. All you do is tell your vet to give you a prescription and go to the Costco pharmacy. I also buy frontline there, but I am planning to switch to advantix since I have read better things about it.

I used interceptor for years until we could no longer get it. Still hopeful they will make it again but have really been happy with revolution and it has the added flea protection which is good. I hate those little bugs.
