Just curious, has anyone’s dog ever gotten worms (hookworms, roundworms, whipworms) while taking heartgard PLUS?? My beagle has gotten hookworm (a little more than 1 year ago) and whipworm (a few days ago) while on heartgard plus every month.

Hello,
This is not uncommon as the pill kills the worms that are present but many pets pick them up again between pills. Talk to your vet about the preventative that you are on and that you are taking it at the correct time frame and that your dog is really eating it (not spitting it out without ingesting it). I see what you are talking about frequently. It is also pretty well documented. I hope this helps.
