Due to differences in which Heartworm Medicines require a prescription it is possible to buy a range ofheartworm pills without prescription, provided you order from a Canadian pet medication supplies store. The added benefit of this is that prices are generally lower than in the US due to there being no sales tax for US customers, and a more regulated pricing structure for Canadian medicines generally.
Not all heartworm pills are sold as over the counter medications in Canada, so you will not be able to buy Sentinel or Interceptor without a prescription. But the most popular oral heartworm preventatives are available prescription free.

Heartgard Heartworm Pills Without Prescription
Heartgard, produced by Merial, is the original monthly heartworm pill. Using ivermectin to keep our dogs free from heartworm larvae it is safe and easy to use. Heartgard are supplied in the form of a large chewable beef flavoured tablet. Most dogs love the chewy meaty taste and are happy to take their medicine without any difficulty.
There are also a number of generic Heartgard heartworm pills available without prescription. Each uses the same quantity and quality of active ingredient; ivermectin. They differ in that as generics they are far more economical to buy, and do not come supplied as chewable tablets.
The two generic versions of Heartgard, are called Nuheart and Valuheart. Both are RX free when bought via the links from Canada. Nuheart is produced in Australia. It is a tiny beef flavoured tablet that most dogs should enjoy the taste of. To help make the heartworm prevention even easier to use, Nuheart are soluble pills, so really difficult dogs can be tricked into taking their medication by dissolving the pill in a little water or milk and mixing with their food.
Valuheart are also Australian made, generic Heartguard pills. This time they are provided as a straightforward tablet. Because these are an ordinary pill, the active ingredient has been made to be even throughout the tablets, so they can safely be broken in half or quarters allowing for more precise dosing of your dog, and thus saving you money in the long term.
Heartgard and its generic counterparts all contain the same volume of Ivermectin necessary to safely destroy tissue stage heartworms before they pose any risk to the health of your dog.

Heartgard Plus is a newer product from Merial. Again this is an ivermectin based tablet supplied as an oversized chewy treat.

Proheart Heartworm Tablets – No Prescription Needed
Proheart are a generic Moxidectin based heartworm pill. Again they are used monthly to destroy tissue stage heartworm larvae before they are any problem. Moxidectin is preferred by some Collie owners that worry about using Ivermectin. Moxidectin is still able to safely and thoroughly remove heartworms, but it is faster acting, meaning it really must be used every month, as trying to destroy older heartworms so swiftly could cause complications for the dog.
Proheart without prescription is available via the links at the side. Low prices, and swift delivery from a reliable Canadian pet medicine retailer is guaranteed.
Heartworm Pills – No Prescription
All the heartworm pills listed are available without a prescription. But there are some things you should consider, as usually your vet would let you know, when writing out a prescription.
- Each heartworm medicine must be used monthly. Ideally all dogs should be tested prior to starting treatment, and every year thereafter. Small puppies will not need to be tested for the disease, since it takes up to 6 months to develop.
- Forgotten doses should be given as soon as possible. Delays of over two months should be discussed with your vet as a re-test may be needed.
- Always use the correct dose of any heartworm medicine, designed for the weight of your pet.
Heartworm preventative medicine has a very good safety record when used correctly, so be sure to read and understand the label. Regular use will keep your pet free from heartworm disease.
