Confused New Heartworm Pill!!

After running out of Interceptor this month I just gave Sammie his first Iverheart Plus. The Vet ordered it for me. I sure hope he doesn't have a reaction to it. My Vet told me if he did react to it, would most likely just be vomiting, and nothing serious. He did fine on Inteceptor for 2 yrs.

I know this is not thread worthy, but I am such a paranoid about changing meds and reactions. I can't help it.

I can understand your being nervous changing meds.....but I am sure he will be okay.

What is the difference between the two? Leila hasn't started on pills yet. But I have been using Revolution. The vet said she has to be 5lbs before she puts her on anything pill form. My Yorkie, who was 3.2lbs as an adult always did fine on pills. Ray (my husband) has his Lab on something that takes care of fleas, ticks, and heartworms. I can't think of the name right now.

Okay, so has Novartis permanently pulled Interceptor from the market? I have 1 dose left for each of my 3..I don't give it Nov-Feb because it gets cold here and they are indoors..I start up again in March..is Iverheart the replacement for Interceptor? Kandis, I feel the same way you do..I have always used Interceptor for my Maltese and I am terrified to give them something else..

Kandis i can understand your worry about having to use a new med for my CM, especially after the reaction he had to Frontline at HH. Hoping that he does well with it. Right now i have mine on revolution, but i really don't like the combo, so will be talking to my vet about Iverhart and then if i need something for fleas than will use Comfortis. Let us know how he does.
