Voluntary IVERHART PLUS Recall

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

The Manufacturer of IVERHART PLUS Flavored Chewable Tablets has voluntarily recalled three lots due to subpotent levels of ivermectin in two lots which may not fully protect pets against heartworms and one lot nearing the lower potency limit for ivermectin. No adverse reactions or illnesses have been reported with these products.

Please check any IVERHART PLUS product in your home to see if it contains one of the following lot numbers. If you have the product with one of these lot numbers, please bring it to our hospital as soon as possible for a replacement six-month package of IVERHART PLUS or if you are not a client, be sure to contact your veterinarian. The lot number is listed on the bottom lid/flap of the box in a white text field and on the “blister foil” of the individual doses.

  • IVERHART PLUS Dogs Small Up to 25 lbs., lot #090073
  • IVERHART PLUS Dogs Large 50 to 100 lbs., lot #090093 and lot #090095
