All dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection
before starting treatment with IVERHART MAX Chewable
Tablets, which are not effective against adult D. immitis
Infected dogs should be treated to remove adult heart-
worms and microﬁlariae before initiating a heartworm preven-
While some microﬁlariae may be killed by the ivermectin in IVERHART MAX Chewable Tablets at the recommended dose level, IVERHART MAX Chewable Tablets are not effec-tive for microﬁlariae clearance. A mild hypersensitivity-type reaction, presumably due to dead or dying microﬁlariae and particularly involving transient diarrhea, has been observed in clinical trials with ivermectin alone after treatment of some dogs that have circulating microﬁlariae.
In clinical ﬁeld trials with ivermectin/
pyrantel pamoate, vomiting or diarrhea within 24 hours of
dosing was rarely observed (1.1% of administered doses).
The following adverse reactions have been reported
following the use of ivermectin: depression/lethargy, vomiting, anorexia, diarrhea, mydriasis, ataxia, staggering, convulsions and hypersalivation.
Studies with ivermectin indicate that
certain dogs of the Collie breed are more sensitive to the
effects of ivermectin administered at elevated dose levels
(more than 16 times the target use level of 6 mcg/kg) than
dogs of other breeds. At elevated doses, sensitive dogs
showed adverse reactions which included mydriasis,
depression, ataxia, tremors, drooling, paresis, recumbency,
excitability, stupor, coma and death. No signs of toxicity were
seen at 10 times the recommended dose (27.2 mcg/lb) in
sensitive Collies. Results of these studies and bioequivalence
studies support the safety of ivermectin products in dogs,
including Collies, when used as recommended by the label.
In a laboratory safety study, 12-week-old Beagle puppies receiving 3 and 5 times the recommended dose once weekly for 13 weeks demonstrated a dose-related decrease in testicular maturation compared to controls.
