    Hi, we use Revolution. It protects against fleas, ticks and Heartworm. We use it between June and October, and it is administered once a month as a drop in between the shoulder blades. This is their second season on this medication as they are only 16 months old, and they both do well on it with no side effects or problems. The cost of Revolution is about $150 for a six month supply.

    Heartgard is not on recall. It's another product called IVERHEART PLUS chewable tablets.

    I use Heartgard Plus and Frontline Plus for all my past dogs as well as my present Boomer my bully, Bailey my Golden and Merlin my Newfoundland.

    Sorry @BoomerBoy, you are right, Brad had his selective listening feature turned on this am at the vet. I just got off the phone with our vet, she said no recall, they just decided to carry a new product, Trifexus. She said they also have a shot for the heart worm as well (unsure of the name).

    I can see people are unhappy with the Trifexus... what about it don't you guys like??
    Just trying to figure out where to go from here.... I need to make a decision soon... he is due for the heart guard!!

    Help!!

    My concern with Sentinel is that the fleas can still bite the dog and potentially give the dog a disease because it just sterilizes the fleas so they cant reproduce.

    Almost all other products kill fleas on contact so they never get a chance to bite the dog. Where I live this is important because our fleas can spread the plague.

    It does protect against heart worm.

    And I think with trifexis, it doesn't protect against ticks? Is that right?

    Trifexis for heartworm and fleas. Advantix for ticks and more fleas.
