Interceptor For Dogs - 3pk / Up to 4kg
Interceptor for dogs is a monthly tasty chew for the prevention and control of heartworm and intestinal worms in dogs.
Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews active ingredients are milbemycin oxime and praziquantel.
Milbemycin oxime interferes with nerve transmission in invertebrates, which helps protect against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm.
Praziquantel causes muscle spasm in tapeworm, which are then attacked by enzymes and disintegrate. It kills all intestinal forms of tapeworm except Spirometra spp, which require a higher than standard dose rate.
Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews prevent heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) and control roundworm (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina), whipworm (Trichuris vulpis), hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinariastenocephala) and adult tapeworm (Echinococcus granulosus, Dipylidium caninum, Taenia pisiformis) in dogs.
Interceptor Worming schedule:
Puppies- 2, 4, 8, 12 weeks of age, then monthly
Adults- Once a month
Pregnant bitches- At mating, before whelping, then monthly
Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews are flavoured with real cooked chicken. Chicken meat is cooked, ground and dried before being added to the formulation. Studies have shown that Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews are so palatable that 94% of dogs accept them straight from the hand.
Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews come in packs of three (a 3-month supply) and six (a 6-month supply).
Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews can be safely used in puppies from 2 weeks of age, breeding males and females, pregnant females, and in collies sensitive to ivermectin.
If an animal with adult heartworm infection (and therefore circulating microfilariae) is given Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews, a transient shock-like reaction can occur. To avoid this, dogs should be tested for adult heartworm and treated if necessary, before starting Interceptor Spectrum Tasty Chews.
Studies have confirmed safety at up to 10 times the recommended dose.
