Virbac has expanded its voluntary recall of Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables

While we don’t carry this product, we think it is very important to share this information in case anyone bought this product somewhere else. Virbac has expanded its voluntary recall of Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables following its initial recall notice in April 2013. According to PetMD, additional specific lots of the heartworm preventive are being recalled because they might not fully protect dogs in the upper third of each weight range. PetMD cited a letter distributed by Virbac saying that 14 lots of Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables were below Ivermectin potency levels prior to their expiration. Another 17 lots are being recalled out of caution even though they remain within specification. Virbac directs consumers who have questions about the recall to contact Virbac Technical Services at 1-800-338-3659, ext. 3052. Please help us share this information. If anyone needs it, we are fully stocked with Sentinal. We believe that Sentinel is a superior product because it gets two additional parasites: It kills whipworms, which infect about 20 percent of dogs, and it controls fleas, preventing an infestation in the home.
