Heartworm Pevention

My breeder recommended Interceptor; my vet recommended Heartguard. Does anyone know what the difference between the two is? Frankly, my breeder is more knowledgeable about the Havanese breed so I'm inclined to go with her recommendation, but I thought that before I made a decision I'd see if anyone knew the differences between them or could point me somewhere where I could find out. TIA!

Isn't Interceptor for worms? I am wondering because Oreo got that as a prescription when he had Coccidia and Giardia.

My breeder recommended Revolution too and I use it. My vet however recommended Heartguard and Frontline Plus since she feels that Frontline takes care of ticks and fleas better while Hearguard protects against the heartworms.
Best,

Interceptor and heartgard are both great heartworm preventions. The major difference it heartgard deworms for hook worms and round worms. Interceptor deworms for hook worms, round worms and whip worms. Depending on where you live will depend on what your vet prefers. Like I live in Ga, we have a problem with Whip worms, so we recommend that our clients use interceptor. Then their is Sentinal with also is like a birth control for fleas. Does not kill them but they can not lay any eggs. I use sentinal with frontline. Just because the fleas are really bad down here and sentinal does nothing for ticks. I hope this helps. O yeah, heartgard is chewable meaty thing, where sentinal and interceptor is a chewable tablet, some dogs will not just eat the tablet. Good Luck!!

Thank you for the explanation of differences! We must have an issue with whip worms here in Virginia too

What I do with the tablet, is open up Gucci's mouth and drop it down her throat, and then I give her a treat and drink to make sure it goes down. It is so tiny, I'm afraid if I left it up to her to chew it, it would fall out of her mouth.
