    My yorkie has been on Heartgard and I’m thinking about switching. I just want one for heartworms not fleas ticks. He has a sensitive stomach. I was thinking about interceptor but someone on hear said it caused vomiting in her dog. Any suggestions

    I’ve used Interceptor for years, on many dogs, never vomiting.

    Thank you. I ordered some Interceptor. My vet is going to start having it again. I don’t want sentinel because it’s for fleas too.

    InkedMarie I put Bailey on Interceptor 7 months ago and no problem except I give it with peanut butter and I think sometimes he swallows it. Does it have to be chewed? Another question: Interceptor plus has something for tapeworms would this be better? Thanks

    I doubt it needs to be chewed. I think mine inhale theirs LOL! My vet only carries the Interceptor Plus and I personally think it’s better.

    Inked Marie my yorkie(little pig) sometimes weighs a little over 8 but usually 7.6lbs. The plus is 2-8 lbs and the interceptor is 2-10 lbs. do you think he’d still be safe with the plus?

    I think that’s a question for the vet!
