    Default Anybody have thoughts of trifexis?

    I have been thinking of switching Briley to trifexis and wanted to know if anyone has any opinions about it? Both good and bad.
    He is currently on heart guard but I think trifexis would be much easier because its one pill that covers the parasites, heart worm, and fleas as opposed to giving him multiple meds.

    Someone here use it... can't remember who.... sorry. I use Sentenial (hoping it is back this month) which is similar, one pill covers a few things.

    Trifexis has severe side effects and can be deadly to your pet. We've already seen the loss of beloved pets who were on Trifexis.

    Please find something else.


    Cheerio mates!

    @2BullyMama I may look that one up!
    @NigelsMom oh no! I'm so very sorry! I thought I remembered reading something on here about someone loosing a pet due to trifexis, but couldn't find the post again when I looked. I will have to look into that and those side effects!

    I still have until the 20th to make my mind up, which is when he gets his heart guard every month. I want to switch to something covering heart worm and fleas and honestly don't know much about any of them.

    When they Sentinel became unavailable I went to 1800 pet meds and looked up other similar products. You can see a comparison chart there and find something better.
    I opted for the Flea 4X and Revolution. So far so good.

    I use it with Ace. Used it on the maltese as well. But the maltese didn't want to swallow it so my wife has the vet do injection. I can get either dog to swallow the pill. Ace will take it right up but if not I can give like I give Gabe's worm meds. Just stick it way down his throat and hold his mouth shut a couple of seconds.

    I wrote "way down his throat" but actually I mean in the back of his mouth near the throat

    I'm not so much worried about him eating it, he'll eat a rock if I give him one. He eats everything lol! Any pills I've given him (antibiotics, pain meds, allergy meds) I don't even have to disguise it, he'll eat it as is lol.
    I'm more concerned with the side effects and the effectiveness of the medicine.

    THANKS! I heard of revolution, but will look it up. I was really happy with the Sentinel

    We use Sentinel, but right now we can't get it so we are using Heart Guard. But as soon as Sentinel becomes available again, we will return to it. I would not use Trifexis, as it can kill your baby.
