    We started Bogey on Triflexis and he got so sick from it- vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy. It was prescribed by my vet ( a bulldog specialist). We switched vets for various reasons, and the first thing the new one did was take him off the Triflexis, and now we just use Heartguard. Bogey had no issues with that or the frontline.

    We only give our bullies Sentinel, it also works for fleas too, then you won't have to use a flea replant too, which can also cause problems.

    Oh My!!!! I had no idea! I saw a commercial on it and wanted to get everyone's opinion on it and over all I am seeing bad so I will not be giving my precious Sheldon this medication and will just continue with the regime I am currently using with him. My vet hasn't recommended it or anything just wanted to get everyone's opinion just in case he headed in that direction but he hasn't said anything about the medication and in fact I don't think I have even seen it at his office. My fur baby is too precious to me to even take the chance I'd rather give him flea baths every day than lose him. Thank you everyone for the input!

    Trifexis is a new medication they are advertising as a preventative for fleas and worms but I am hearing a lot about death and sickness. I won't be using it on my precious boy.

    It's sad that so few have signed it, maybe that can change

    Thank you to all who signed the petition, I know it will mean a lot to many people who have suffered loss due to this drug:'( If we together can get this poison off the market many lives will be saved<3 The anger I feel about this still being sold and recommended by vets is beyond words, if this was a medicine for humans it would have been banned immediately. Some people just don't understand how much our dogs mean to us, and how important it is to feel safe bringing our dogs to the vet.

    I completely agree! A lot of people don't realize just how much a part of our hearts these fur babies are! I don't want to imagine my life without my fur baby! Those big eyes and muzzies in the morning always start my day off right, and my heart cries for all those who have lost those loved fur babies. I went to the facebook page as well and liked it and will be calling and talking to my vet about it and see if he won't call and add his complaint to the list of vets doing this! I agree the more we get the word out about this poison the more people will be educated on it! If this were a human drug the FDA would have been all over it like white on rice on a paper plate!

    Ja @Jennifer Clark it's good if as many as possible knows, then at least they can get the chance to make the right decision. Of course people will trust their vet if he prescribes something, he is meant to be your dogs doctor and life saver. I've tried my best getting friends and family to sign the petition, but me not knowing anybody in the USA is making it hard. This drug doesn't exist where I'm from or where I live now and for that I'm thankful. I would go mad, absolutely crazy, if I found out my vet sold something like this. I'm pretty calm but when it comes to my fur kids you better not mess with me The only good thing coming out of all of this is that maybe now people will, just like you did here, ask advice and search the internet for information before treating your dog. I know I'm more paranoid now than before, if that is even possible
