Interceptor over heartgard?

Vet says Interceptor kills more worms but I have been using Heartgard.

What are you people using? My dogs are all Weims if that matters.

As puppies become young adults and then fully mature their food needs change. My 3year olds eat way less then they did at 18 to 24 months.
