Protect Against These Dangerous Parasites With the Preventive Chewables That Dogs Love to Take and the Owners Prefer to Give
Heartworms are parasites that inhabit the hearts and lungs of infected dogs. Heartworm
disease can cause serious health problems and may eventually lead to heart failure and death. Heartworm
infection is transmitted by mosquitoes. The prevalence of this deadly disease has increased steadily since it was first identified and it now affects pets in all 50 states.
Signs of heartworm disease in dogs
- Breathing difficulty
- Reduced ability to exercise
Disease is 100% Preventable - with HEARTGARD® Plus
All you have to do to protect your dog from heartworm disease is to give HEARTGARD Plus once a month. It's convenient, your dog will love it and it's guaranteed. HEARTGARD® Plus prevents deadly heartworm disease and treats and controls other dangerous internal parasites - guaranteed.
Hookworms feed by repeatedly removing small amounts of tissue from inside the intestinal walls where they reside. This "grazing" results in blood loss and inflammation, and can lead to anemia, weakness and malnutrition. Certain hookworm infections can be fatal to young puppies.
Signs of hookworm infection in dogs
- Weight loss
- Pale gums
HEARTGARD® Plus treats and controls dangerous intestinal parasites - in puppies as young as 6 weeks of age. From the very first dose, HEARTGARD Plus treats and controls roundworms and more species of hookworms than any other product of its kind - guaranteed.
Roundworms occupy the intestines of infected dogs, robbing them of nutrients and sometimes even blocking passage of their food. Severe infections can result in damage to the lungs and liver. Roundworms may infect a dog of any age, but they are especially dangerous to puppies.
Signs of roundworm infection in dogs
- Eggs and adult worms visible in feces
- Respiratory distress
- Dull, scruffy-looking fur
- "un-thrifty" coat
- Swollen abdomen - "pot belly"

Don't let a bug bite turn deadly
One mosquito bite is all it takes to infect an unprotected dog with heartworms. In fact, nearly 300,000 indoor and outdoor dogs in the U.S. contract
each year, causing painful heart and lung damage and even death.
Giving your dog Sentinel® Spectrum® (milbecmcyin
and praziquantel) chewables
on the same date every month is the smart way to prevent this potentially fatal disease.
Intestinal parasites can lead to big problems for your dog and your home
can cause bloody diarrhea, infection and even death in untreated dogs
- Hookworms, which can also pose a zoonotic threat to humans, are painful intestinal parasites that can invade your pet's digestive system
- Roundworms are the most common worms found in dogs
Dogs should be tested for heartworm prior to use. Mild hypersensitivity reactions have been noted in some dogs carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. Treatment with fewer than 6 monthly doses after the last exposure to mosquitoes may not provide complete heartworm prevention.
How Dangerous Are Parasites to My Dog?
For families with dogs, parasites like heartworm, fleas, ear mites and sarcoptic mites can be more than harmful. They may be devastating. Left untreated, heartworm
can be fatal to a dog. What's worse, some of these external parasites are contagious and may be spread from one pet to another and sometimes even to humans. Fortunately, thanks to Revolution, there's now an easy way to protect your dog against all of these parasites.
Why Is Revolution Different?
FDA-approved Revolution is not a pesticide. Revolution is the only topical medicine that protects dogs against fleas and heartworm and several other harmful parasites, inside and out. It takes more than two separate products to get the same protection that Revolution provides in one medicine.
Is Revolution Safe to Use?
It's safe for puppies as young as 6 weeks, breeding males and females, and pregnant and nursing dogs. Revolution is generally well-tolerated. In studies, less than 1% of dogs experienced digestive upset. Use with caution in sick, weak or underweight animals. See back panel for prescribing information.
