Comprehensive worming for your dog
Interceptor is a once-monthly chew that prevents hookworm, roundworm, whipworm, and tapeworm - in other words, all intestinal worms common in Australia. Interceptor also covers for heartworm, which makes it an all-round comprehensive all-wormer for your dog.
Reviewed and recommended by vets
Veterinarians around Australia recommend interceptor for those who wish to treat heartworm orally. It is an established safe, reliable wormer for Australian dogs.
Palatable and easy to give
Giving a dog wormer doesn't have to be a struggle. Interceptor chewy bites are highly tasty and the majority of dogs will eat them gladly.
How do dogs catch worms?
Dogs can catch worms from the soil, contact with other animal's faeces, from eating fleas (as happens when your dog bites at their own flea-infested skin), and even from exposure to lizard poo. Dogs catch heartworm from mosquitoes. This means that all dogs need worming protection, even if kept inside.
How do I tell if my dog has worms?
Signs of worm infestation can include unexplained weight loss or an inability to gain weight, vomiting, diarrhoea, or reduced appetite. Occasionally dogs will bite at their bottom or scrape their bottom on the ground, but worms are rarely the cause of this scooting behaviour. To definitively find out whether your dog has worms though, you will need a visit to the vet, so they can run tests on your dog's faeces.
