Virbac has expanded its voluntary recall of Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables

Important Recall Information

Virbac has expanded its voluntary recall of Iverhart Plus Flavored Chewables following its initial recall notice in April 2013.

While Iverhert Plus is not sold at Trooper Veterinary Hospital, we want to make everyone aware of this recall should they have purchased it elsewhere, or know of any friends who may be using this product for their dogs.

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.
