What is Heartgard Plus chewables?

Heartgard Plus is a beef-flavored chewable tablet which prevents heartworm for dogs. It also treats and controls roundworm and hookworm.

Heartworm can be a silent killer because it will go unnoticed by owners most of the time. Heartworm larvae are transmitted by infected mosquitoes. When the infected mosquito bites, the larvae pass through the tissue into the bloodstream. It’s virtually impossible to stop mosquitos from biting your fur babies, so pet owners need to protect them against heartworm.
