Dimmitrol Heartworm Tabs

5 posts in this topic

Hi all,

Is anyone using the Dimmitrol daily tablets for Heartworm with their dogs?

I have Collie type dogs and am looking at the tablet that does NOT contain any mectin products.

Many thanks

I used to use it years ago - for about 20 years. It definitely works, and does not cause the problems some other treatments for heartworm cause. Use it with confidence.

Have you had your dogs tested for the MDR1 gene? If not you may be worrying for nothing. My Border Collies have been on Interceptor/Milbemax for 20 years with no problems but BCs are far less likely to have the MDR1 gene that Collies who need to be tested.

We all used to use dimmitrol for many years before the monthly tablets came out. They do work but you have to be very careful not to miss one.
