Interceptor® (milbemycin oxime)
Your dog depends on you to do the right thing. And that means protecting him from dangerous parasites. Interceptor® (milbemycin oxime), trusted by veterinarians for over 25 years, prevents heartworm disease and provides broad spectrum protection from important intestinal parasites.1
Why choose Interceptor®?
Prevention is the most important thing you can do for your pet:
- Approved for dogs and puppies 4 weeks or older and weighing 2 lbs. or greater
- Beef-flavored, more than 95% of dogs willingly accept the tablet
- Small tablet size is ideal for smaller dogs
Small tablet, big parasite protection
Just one easy-to-give dose of Interceptor® (milbemycin oxime) administered monthly provides protection against four dangerous (and potentially fatal) infections:
- Prevents heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis
- Protects against intestinal parasites:
- hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum)
- roundworm (Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina)
- whipworm (Trichuris vulpis)
To learn more about Interceptor, talk to your veterinarian.
Interceptor® is indicated for use in the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, the control of adult hookworm (Ancylostoma caninum), and the removal and control of adult roundworms (Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina) and whipworm (Trichuris vulpis) infections in dogs and in puppies four weeks of age or greater and two pounds body weight or greater.
Dosage and Administration
The dose can be added to a small meal or placed directly in the mouth, similar to tablet dosing.
Once a month, ideally on the same date.
If a dose is overdue by <15 days, treat immediately and resume monthly dosing.
If a dose is missed by 15-30 days, heartworm prevention can be maintained if treated immediately and monthly dosing resumes for at least the next 2 months.
If a dose is missed by >60 days, a veterinarian must be consulted in case the animal has contracted heartworm. Dosing may be recommenced, and a blood test for adult heartworm must be performed after 6 months.
