How does Heartgard Plus work?
Heartgard Plus contains two active compounds, Ivermectin and Pyrantel. These compounds combined act as strong anti-parasitic. They assist in killing worm larvae by causing muscle paralysis in worms, thus preventing the spread of heartworm disease. These active chemicals control the way nerve impulses flow through the neurological system of the worm, which results in the paralysis of worms and then death.
It should be noted that Heartgard Plus is only effective as a preventative for heartworm infection. You must first diagnose your dog for heartworm infection before administering any heartworm prevention product. If your dog has already been infected with heartworm, you should consult your veterinarian.
