Remove only one chewable at a time from the foil backed blister card. Return the card with the remaining chewables to the box to protect the product from light. Because most dogs find HEARTGARD® (ivermectin) palatable, the product can be offered to the dog by hand. Alternatively, it may be added to a small amount of dog food. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken to see 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 dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.
For dogs over 100 lbs, give the appropriate combination of chewables once a month.
For dogs 6 weeks of age and older.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION: HEARTGARD® (ivermectin) is well tolerated. All dogs should be tested for heartworm infection before starting a preventive program.
