    Any favored brands?? I just got Hammie Interceptor.....had only used Heartguard prior. Does this really also control hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms?? I've always given them that separate. :)


    I have a friend that gets one shot every 6 months instead of the tabs monthly. Any thoughts if one is better than the other? Thanks!!!

    the 6 month shot (proheart 6 was just recently recalled by the FDA pending further testing.)

    sorry I forgot to add the link...here is the thread regarding the proheart6 recall...maybe you should pass it on to your friend.

    As far as tabs...I live in a very high risk area for heartworm and parasites...I have been using Interceptor on both my dogs with no infestation problems at all.:)
