Just the base drug used. Heartguard is Ivermectin, Interceptor is Milbemycin

Wow, I can't believe that any of you can actually still get interceptor. You could sell it on the black market - i am laughing, but i am not kidding. I have an Australian Shepherd that has the MDR1 mutation and i am really nervous giving him heartguard. But it is that or nothing. My vet says he will be fine, but with the mutation i am nervous. I sure hope Novarus starts making interceptor again.

Okay, I was wrong my vet does not have Interceptor they have Iverhart. It looks really similar to Heartgard. They have the same active ingredient and Iverhart treats Roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms and Heartgard treats only roundworms and hookworms. Anyone use it?
