I was wondering about this too. I managed to find a 6 month supply plus the 3 I have left, but I'm worried I might run out before they resume production. Does Heartgard protect against the same things as Interceptor? Are there other alternatives that are better, or is Heartgard the best?
Heartgard is the most palatable, but Interceptor is labeled for one more intestinal parasite than HG (whipworms). BUT the maker of HG will pay for treatment if your dog comes down with whips while taking HG. I guess it depends on your area if this is a big deal or not. Where I live, we don't see a lot of whipworm (and we do A LOT of fecals at my clinic). Down south, it may be a bigger deal.
