Warning Precautions

As macrocyclic lactones may have some effects against adult heartworms, veterinarians are advised to be cautious when treating active or working dogs with a diagnosed heartworm infection. When used as directed, there is a wide margin of safety in all breeds of dogs, including stud dogs, breeding bitches and puppies 6 weeks of age and older. Can be administered to dogs of negative, positive or unknown heartworm status. However, as heartworms can have serious effects on the health of dogs, testing by a veterinarian before initiating heartworm prevention is recommended. Dogs with evidence of an existing heartworm infection should only be treated under the supervision of a veterinarian.
