Recall of Heartworm medicine

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) is reporting that Virbac has recalled six lots of their heartworm preventive, Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables, “because the ivermectin potency failed to meet their stability standards. What this means is that your pets may not be fully protected.”

If this is your pet’s brand of heartworm preventive, contact your veterinarian and see if your pet has received any of the affected lots:

Lot 120076 (Large 51-100 pounds)
Lot 120086 (Large 51-100 pounds)
Lot 120856 (Large 51-100 pounds)
Lot 120202 (Medium 26-50 pounds)
Lot 120196 (Small up to 25 pounds)
Lot 120844 (Small up to 25 pounds)
