Merial Immiticide, Heartgard Shortage

Merial Ltd has reported that it has limited supply of Immiticide (melarsomine dihydrochloride) and Heartgard (ivermectin) Tablets due to technical issues encountered during a planned manufacturing plant transfer. The shortage only relates to Merial’s hard, non-beef, Heartgard Tablets, not Heartgard Chewables or Heartgard Plus (ivermectin/pyrantel) Chewables.  Merial currently expects the Immiticide shortage through the first quarter of 2010 and does not expect Heartgard Tablets to be available until 2011.  In addition to Heartgard, other leading heartworm medications include Interceptor, Sentinel, and Tri-Heart
