Heartworms can be fatal to your dogs. And what is scary is, your pet can contract this harmful parasite from just one bite of a mosquito. So do not take any risk when it comes to the health of your pet dog. Visit your veterinarian now and ask about Iverhart Max.

Its effectiveness to prevent heartworms in your pet dogs is attributed to its active ingredients—pyrantel pamoate, which is used for the control and treatment of hookworms and roundworms in dogs, and praziquantel which is effective in controlling and treating tapeworms.
This antherminthic or dewormer is available in different strengths, differentiated by box colors and different weights of dogs. You should be happy to each of the tablets, in increments of 6 to 12 tablets, is individually foil wrapped for longer effectiveness.

To maintain freshness of the tablet, do not remove it from its wrapper until you are ready to administer it to your pet dog.
