Whipworm treatment?

Species: Dog
Breed: Cane Corso
Age: 5-8 years

I found Novartis's Interceptor but also learned that their product plant was "off line". My question is whether the plant is back in production or are the Interceptor supplies currently on sites like 1800PetMeds, etc the only stock available?

Thx Doc,

Mike
