About Interceptor Spectrum for Dogs
Interceptor is a monthly flavoured heartworm and intestinal wormer for dogs made by Novartis. This very tasty chicken treat is convenient and easy way to make sure your pet is covered against all the main worms of concern in dogs. Because of the powerful heartworm-killing ingredient in Interceptor, it is a good idea to consult your vet before using Interceptor.
The active ingredient Milbemycin oxime kills heartworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm, all significant causes of diarrhoea, weight loss and ill health in dogs. The additional ingredient that is often missing from combined treatments is Praziquantel, which kills tapeworm, another common parasite in suburban or rural pets.
Other products contain Ivermectin as an active ingredient and it has produced adverse effects in dogs, particularly Border Collies. Interceptor spectrum is a good alternative that does not contain ivermectin.
