Heartgard Plus Green is indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease in dogs. It is effective against the immature stages of heartworms (larvae) that are transmitted through mosquito bites.

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition that can affect dogs. It is caused by a parasitic worm called Dirofilaria immitis, which is transmitted through mosquito bites.

Heartgard Plus works by containing the active ingredients ivermectin and pyrantel. Ivermectin helps prevent heartworm disease by allowing the immune system to recognize and inactivate heartworm larvae before they can develop into adults. Pyrantel, on the other hand, treats and controls hookworms and roundworms.
