Heartgard Plus by Merial is a monthly oral pet med used in dogs and puppies as a combination heartworm preventive and intestinal wormer. Heartgard Plus kills the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis). It is also used for the treatment and control of hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, A. brasiliense, and Uncinaria stenocephala) and roundworms (ascarids - Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina).

Heartgard Plus pet meds contains two active ingredients: Ivermectin, which interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of the immature heartworms (larvae). Pyrantel pamoate, which also interferes with the parasite's nerve transmission, causing paralysis and death of intestinal worms. Death of intestinal worms occur when they are exposed to the environment.
