Question from jose c.
Each month I give my dog ??Heartgard Plus for dogs up to 25 lbs. My question is if it is protected from internal parasites or I need to give him some extra medication for fully protected.
Thanks for your reply....
Our vet answers:
Heartgard Plus protects against hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, A.brasiliense, and Uncinaria stenocephala) and roundworms(ascarids - Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina). For good protection against internal parasites I also recommend administering treatment every3 months with tablets against whipworm and tapeworm. For this you could use Allwormer, Cazitel, Popantel or Zantel. It is very important to have protection against fleas every month also.
