    DefaultHeartworm Meds.

    What are your thoughts on Revolution topical ointment for heartworm and paracite prevention?

    It's been only proven to be 85% effective against HW infestation. I would reccommend going with Interceptor or Heartguard plus.

    Dani, Where have you found the 85% number? I looked up information on it the last time it was mentioned, and the FDA website says 100%. I don't use it ... not interested in using it ... but would like to know where you found 85%.

    I prefer Interceptor because it gets rid of whipworms as well as other intestional parasites and heartworms. I wouldn't trust any topical preventative for something as serious as heartworms. If your dog gets heartworms while on Revolution, the company will not back it's product.

    Nope; Drontal is for intestinal parasites such as hookworms.
