    Hi everyone, picked up our new puppy last week and had our first vet appointment yesterday. The vet recommended Interceptor Plus for heartworm. I asked the breeder their opinion and she said to only give Interceptor and not Interceptor Plus. She said dogs are dying from Interceptor Plus. From what I read, the primary difference between is Interceptor Plus adds praziquantel for tapeworm treatment.

    I wanted to know if anyone here is using Interceptor Plus and if they have had any issues?

    Thank you in advance.

    I briefly used it when I accidentally ordered it instead of the regular. 6 month supply with no issues. we are currently using Sentinel.

    Our vet gave us Interceptor Plus this time too. We were getting just Interceptor before. I did t even realize it until it was time to give it to Shelby. But we haven't had any issues with it.
