Interceptor Spectrum Description

When you take on the responsibility of a canine, you are also in charge of keeping them safe and healthy. Interceptor Spectrum (Milbemycin/Praziquantel) can help by providing protection for your dog from parasitic worms, including heartworm, adult whip/hook/and tapeworm, as well as adult and immature roundworm.

At some point in every dogs life, they will experience an intestinal parasite infection. Some of these parasites can also be transmitted to their human families so it is important to use caution when picking up the feces after your dog has done his/her business.

Parasite Treatment and Prevention with Interceptor Spectrum Monthly

The active ingredients of Interceptor Spectrum are Milbemycin and Praziquantel. When given as a tasty chew to your dog, Milbemycin will act on the nerve signal transmission of the larval 3 and 4 stages of the heartworm life cycle and killing them before they can reach adulthood. The same method of destroying intestinal parasites is also carried out for controlling adult hookworm, whipworm, and both adult and immature roundworm.

Praziquantel directs its action against the tapeworm’s nervous system and causes paralysis so they lose their ability to hook onto areas of the small intestine so they end up being digested by your dog and small pieces may be noticeable in the dog’s stool. Proper flea control will help diminish the tapeworm numbers.

Conditions Treated by Interceptor Spectrum

A heartworm infection can prove lethal if you do not notice the behavioral and physical changes of your dog in time. Heartworm can be passed through the bite of an infected mosquito and symptoms include a persistent cough, weight loss, no interest in exercising, decreased appetite, and fatigue following moderate activity. This is why heartworm testing and preventive medicine is important for your pet (s) to continue a happy life with good health. Interceptor Spectrum has 4 different dosages to coincide with their weight and is safe for pups as young as 2 weeks old, pregnant females, and breeding dogs.

Before You Start Your Pet on Interceptor Spectrum

Your veterinarian can tell you the best time of the year to start giving your dog Interceptor Spectrum. Some owners keep their dogs on Interceptor Spectrum year-round so after testing negative for heartworm, you can freely give Milbemycin/Praziquantel to your canine month after month and not have to retest. Taking steps to prevent heartworm is much easier on your pet and bank account compared to the cost for treating a dog with heartworm.

Interceptor Spectrum Precautions and Proper Use

You should not try splitting the Interceptor Spectrum tabs to save money as there is no guarantee if ½ of a tablet will contain the same amount of Milbemycin/Praziquantel as the other half. Interceptor Spectrum is not for heartworm protection in cats but there are other Interceptor products that will.
