Heartworms can be deadly to your dog, but Interceptor® (milbemycin oxime) prevents heartworm disease to protect your pet.
Adult heartworms can cause heart and lung damage, even death.
Common signs include coughing, lack of energy, labored breathing, and weight loss.

Prevention is key.

Using a heartworm preventative like Interceptor on the same date each month is the best way to prevent heartworm disease.

One mosquito bite is all it takes to infect an unprotected dog.

Heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes and are found in dogs that live indoors and outdoors.1

Interceptor kills heartworm larvae before clinical signs of disease occur.

Before starting a preventive regimen, talk to your veterinarian about testing for existing heartworm infection. Giving a preventive to a dog that is already heartworm-positive can cause further complications.

If your dog tests positive for heartworms, your veterinarian will discuss a treatment plan with you.

If left untreated, larvae develop into immature heartworms between days 50 and 70. Adult heartworms restrict blood flow, resulting in pathology or damage to the heart and lungs and possibly even death.
