Directions

Dosage & Administration: Give Heartgard exactly as directed by the veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Heartgard chewable tablets must be chewed. They should not be swallowed whole. Use with caution, Collies and other herding dog breeds have been known to have adverse reactions to ivermectin administered at elevated dose levels. Heartworm testing should be performed before the start of prevention therapy. If the animal is off Heartgard Chewables for 6 months or less, start the medication and test after 6 months since microfilaria that takes 6 months to mature will result in a positive test result. Store Heartgard chewable at room temperature. Do not remove the chew from its wrapper until ready to give the medicine. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Also, Dog Heartgard Chewables has shown a wide margin of safety at the recommended dose level in dogs including pregnant or breeding bitches, stud dogs and puppies aged 6 or more weeks.

Important Protection at a Good Price!
We have been giving Heartgard to our dogs for decades. The vet recommended them and the protection from heart worms is important. All of our dogs have taken the pill without any hesitation and with no side effects. The price is better than the vet's or Costco's.

A once again satisfied returning customer
Entirely Pets is a great source for conventional meds as well as medication supplements for pets. Their prices are competitive if not less then other online pet pharmacies and their service is very efficient. The pet meds I ordered were @ my house in just a few days. I have been getting my little dogs Hearguard from another online pharmacy but they were not able to beat Entirely Pets prices and b/c I use too order meds from Entirely Pets, and was always satisfied, I decided to place my order once again w/ them. Thanks Entirely Pets for your consistent online ordering made easy.

It was great.
I have used this for the life of both my pets. As per their yearly tests, they have both been Heartworm free every year. This is a very good product and I would not use any other. Entirely Pets Pharmacy has made receiving this product very easy and cost efficient.
