Strongheart Plus is recommended for dogs 6 weeks of age and older.

For dogs over 100 lbs use the appropriate combination of these chewable.

ADMINISTRATION:

Remove only one chewable at a time from the foil-backed blister card. Return the card with the remaining Chewables to its box to protect the product from light. Because most dogs find Strongheart Plus palatable, the product can be offered to the dog by hand. Alternatively, it may be added intact to a small amount of dog food. The chewable should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Chewable may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole.

Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed for a few minutes after administration to ensure that part of the dose is not lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.

Strongheart Plus should be given at monthly intervals during the period of the year when mosquitoes (vectors), potentially carrying infective heartworm larvae, are active. The initial dose must be given within a month (30 days) after the dog's first exposure to mosquitoes. The final dose must be given within a month (30 days) after the dog's last exposure to mosquitoes.

When replacing another heartworm preventive product in a heartworrn disease preventive program, the first dose of Strongheart Plus must be given within a month (30 days) of the last dose of the former medication. If the interval between doses exceeds a month (30 days), the efficacy of ivermectin can be reduced. Therefore, for optimal performance, the chewable must be given once a month on or about the same day of the month. If treatment is delayed, whether by a few days or many, immediate treatment with Strongheart Plus and resumption of the recommended dosing regimen minimizes the opportunity for the development of adult heartworms.

Monthly treatment with Strongheart Plus also provides effective treatment and control of ascarids (T. Canis, T. leonina) and hookworms (A. caninum, U. stenocephala, A. Brazilians). Clients should be advised of measures to be taken to prevent reinfection with intestinal parasites.

EFFICACY:

Strongheart Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) Chewable, given orally using the recommended dose and regimen, is effective against the tissue larval stage of D. immitis for a month (30 days) after infection and, as a result, prevent the development of the adult stage. Strongheart PlusChewables are also effective against canine ascarids (T. Canis, T. leonina) and hookworms (A. caninum, U. stenoc,ephala,A. braziliense).

ACCEPTABILITY:

In acceptability and field trials, Strongheart Plus was shown to be an acceptable oral dosage form that was consumed at first offering by the majority of dogs.

PRECAUTIONS:

All dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection before starting treatment with Strongheart Pluswhich is not effective against adult D. innmitis. Infected dogs must be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae before initiating a program with Strongheart Plus.

While some microfilariae may be killed by the ivermectin in Strongheart Plus at the recommended dose level, Strongheart Plus is not effective for microfilariae clearance. A mild hypersensitivity-type reaction, presumably due to dead or dying microfilariae and particularly involving a transient diarrhea, has been observed in clinical trials with ivermectin alone after treatment of some dogs that have circulating nnicrofilariae.

Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. In case of ingestion by humans, clients should be advised to contact a physician immediately. Physicians may contact a Poison Control Center for advice concerning cases of ingestion by humans.
