New Year- Any Word on Interceptor Coming Back?

Has anyone got some good intel on if/when Interceptor will be back in the US market? I've got 3 pills left and I'm reluctant to put the dogs on Trifexis. Our vet won't dispense/prescribe Heartguard Plus.

Ugh, I asked our vet Friday and they said hopefully spring, but they'll believe it when they see it! They did say that the company told them Sentinel would be back first - but I don't think any of this is new news

Curious why your vet won't put them on Heartguard Plus? That is what I ended up switching to, but my vet said because we live in the country, my dogs are better off on Interceptor.

It's because the Heartgard doesn't cover whipworms. I'm not happy about it because I'd like to stay on HG+ and just do a deworming a couple of times a year!

Okay, that is the very reason why my vet wants mine back on Interceptor when it is available again. She has us test our dogs twice a year.

I sure hope Sentinel is back in Spring.... o_O

If it isn't, I'll be buying Heartguard Plus for Bertie and Trifexis for Jacks. <- I had my regular vet write a prescription for Trifexis and I purchased it from a different vet all last year. I'd do the same thing with Heartguard + for Bertie if it weren't readily available. <- I'm not thrilled about it not covering everything, but I don't like the idea of putting a puppy on Trifexis.

Then ask them to write a prescription so you can order HG from Dr. Fosters and Smith, or another vet clinic that will fill it for you.

Why aren't you thrilled with putting a puppy on Trifexis? Our, at the time 8 week old puppy took a pill, and should get her second pill at 12 weeks.

I also second the comment about Trifexis - my puppy will be getting it when I get him home at 8 weeks and continue it the next month as well. Is there something we don't know about??

Why would the pup get a pill of Trifexis at 8 weeks old and then not again until 12 weeks old? That does not make sense to me.
Even a pup will have to stay on heartworm preventative monthly.

My dogs are on Trifexis since Interceptor was off the market. They have done great on it, no problems.
I was at the vet's office yesterday with one of my seniors and I asked my vet about problems with Trifexis. He said, the only complaint was nausea and that should go away after a couple of months being on the meds.
Then I asked him about Interceptor coming back. He had gotten a small supply of Interceptor and he had one 12 pack for large dogs left. I told him, I take it, because it is cheaper than buying Trifexis right now and having had a really cold spell, right now I am not worried about fleas. Besides, once spring hits, I would rather have them on Interceptor plus Frontline Plus if I can. I don't want to overdo it with the flea protection, especially since I have never seen a flea on any of my dogs.
But, in general, the word still is "no idea" when Interceptor will be back in full supply.

Next month I will have to buy Trifexis again for my dachshund, since there were no small Interceptors available yesterday.
