What parasites does Interceptor Spectrum cover ?

Used for the prevention of:
  • Heartworm – spread by mosquitoes, so all dogs in such areas are at risk, will cause heart & lung disease and eventually death.
{Dogs must be tested for heartworm before commencing Interceptor if they have not been on heartworm prevention before}
 and the control of:
  • Roundworm (immature & adult) – causes diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In younger dogs it can stunt growth and give them a “pot belly” appearance. As round can be transmitted to puppies soon after they are born, treatment can commence as young as 2 weeks of age. Roundworm can cause disease in humans
  • Hookworm – causes bloody diarrhoea, anaemia & in some cases death; damage the wall of the intestines causing them to bleed internally leading to black faeces. Larvae and be swallowed or simply migrate through the skin. Hookworm can cause disease in humans
  • Whipworm – can cause bloody, jelly-like diarrhoea and anaemia. Are picked up from the environment, often difficult to find when testing
  • Tapeworm – live in the large intestine and absorb nutrients. Can be the cause of 'itchy bottoms' in dogs. The segments of some tapeworms may be seen in the faeces of dogs.
