I just picked up Arexa's heartworm preventive and realized the vet gave me Iverhart max which contains not only invermectin it also has paryntel pamoate/praziquantel in it, should I return it back to them and ask just for regular kind? Anyone giving Iverhart max to their dogs? My concern is it has too many unnecessary chemichals...
Since Interceptor became unavailable, I have switched to Iverhart too. However, I use Iverhart Plus which is the same as Heartguard Plus (ivermectin and pyrantel pamoate). Tapeworms are not an issue for me, so I don't use the "Max" version for my dogs. I will, however, use the Iverhart Max for shelter foster dogs as they often come to me with some parasites and may have had fleas too.
