Not sure if anyone else has mention this or not... |
Elanco, the company that makes/distributes Interceptor, will cover the cost of heartworm treatment if your dog for some reason gets heartworm while on Interceptor.
This is obviously if your dog is on the HWP for 12 months out of the year.
I work at an Animal Hospital and we switched to Interceptor a little over a year ago for this reason and also that it is more well rounded for other worms, more then HG

Well... Hell |
Since this thread has been bumped (I wish that here was an expiration on polls), I will
throw my 2 cents out there. We have used Trifexis for years. Never an issue.

Interesting--don't know exactly why this thread showed up--even the last post is from May of 2016. |
Story is still pretty much the same--Novartis only sells Interceptor (single purpose product-heartworm--well, and round worm, hook worm and whipworm, only outside the USA. They manufacture and sell Sentinal--heartworm (the the three other worms) and internal (not entirely effective) flea control. Sentinal Plus--heartworm, round worm, hook and whip worm the same not terribly effective flea control and tapeworm control. There are also other manufacturers who sell heartworm controls that use milbimycin (Trifexis and at least one other but you'll have to do a Google search 'cause I can't remember the name of the other one. Trifexis is still the most expensive combo product where the heartworm control is milbimycin.

|Chelss||I use Interceptor Plus for Heartworms and intestinal parasites, it has Praziquantel to take care of those nasty Tapeworms! And NexGard for fleas and ticks, Florida is a hot-spot for all of the pests!|

|aikilady||I use Interceptor..young kids playing outside and wanted the whipworm protection. I worked as a Vet Tech and I used it then too. Frontline for fleas ??|

|TheKozaFam||Either one honestly is fine and does a great job at preventing Heartworm. I like interceptor because it covers whipworms which can be a pain to get rid of if they get it. Interceptor now makes interceptor plus which covers tapeworms too. ?|

There was a really excellent article in a recent issue of the Whole Dog Journal on flea and tick prevention. There were some considerations that I hadn't considered with different flea preventatives. I know this is a thread about heartworm, but since some of the products are combo products it might be worth a read (you can buy back issues individually, though I think it's a publication worth subscribing to as a whole, of course). |
Edited to add: January 2014 issue of Whole Dog Journal

Interceptor is not available in VA either due to the recall. It's been several years now since the recall went into effect and my understanding was they weren't producing any new batches until the issue was completely resolved. Any that is available is prior to the recall. |
It was good to give to dogs with Demodex as i would help mitigate the issues because of the low dose of ivomectrin in it.
Having said that, I've never had an issue with fleas or ticks prior to using any of them. Only really got familiar with them when I got Riff and his previous owner had a years supply of Interceptor donated to her because of Riff's demodex, which she gave to me when she surrendered him to me.

I'm a Trifexis fan for my older dog and I use ProHeart 6 and Comfortis for Rambo and Maggie. Never had fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, or (thank goodness) heart worms. |
I found that people at our clinic wanting Interceptor are happy with Trifexis.

|LuvMyDobes||With the loss of Interceptor as our heartworm med, my vet has recommended Sentinel. Both products are made by Novartis Animal Health but the main difference between Sentinel and Interceptor, is that Sentinel treats for fleas long-term and controls flea allergy dermatitis. Sentinel will not kill adult fleas, but it will control flea infestations. Interceptor does not treat for fleas of any sort.|

|michelemerc||I thought Interceptor no longer available...is it? I will check the internet but if you could give me a quick link or whatever. thanks.|

|ChloeRed||I read that you can get interceptor at Walmart, has anyone else done this? If so, do you need a vet prescription to pick it up or just call and order it?|

|Rednec_13||I use ivermectin for my dogs. We use it at the rescue too. The vet we use when testing for heart worm still test for how bad the dog has it. No just a yes or not. If the test comes back weak we can normally treat it with out the costly heartworm vet bill and it is easier on the dog. We use to use frontline but now have a supplier that does some of the other flea stuff that when something it wrong with the package we get it for free over them throwing it out like they use too.|

|LuvMyDobes||Just checked with my vet this week when we went for accupuncture and NO Interceptor has come in to them|

|4RosesTess||wow great post. I will be traveling from WA to Mexico and staying for 6 months so I need to be thinking of heart worm and fleas and other worms. Thanks all.|

|LuvMyDobes||I picked up some Interceptor from my vet last week. They had just run out of small dog and had a limited supply of 51-100. They called to place an order for more Interceptor and were told that no more would be available for shipping until November.|

|SonoPixie||My Vet can't get interceptor anymore so I had to put them back on heart guard plus (with the addition of frontline of course).|

|Rosemary||Am I the only one who misses Filaribits? It was a lot easier for me to remember a pill every day, than having to remember one a month. Even with the stickers on the calandar, I sometimes forget to give it. One month, I realized that I had given Lucky TWO doses about five days apart, so now, I cross it off when I give it too them.|
