    Default What heartworm pill do you use?

    So our 14 month old bullie has been on Trifexis pretty much all of his life. After reading all of the BAD things about Trifexis, we are wanting to switch him to a different medication for heartworm and flea prevention. What do ya'll use to protect your bullies!? Any recommendations?

    I have one more dose of HeartGuard then Im going to talk to my vet about Sentinel. Its a one pill flea and heartworm. A few here have had good success with it.

    I have Brie n Triheart currently (I think)?, but want to discuss Sentinel as well. Does sentinel protect from ticks as well as fleas and heart worm?

    Harlea is on Sentinel. It covers fleas, ticks and worms. The only difference that I know between it and Triflexis other than being safer is that it doesn't kill the adult fleas if she has them. It breaks the reproductive cycle and kills the eggs and larva.

    Bailey is 14 weeks yesterday, weighs 15.2 pounds yesterday, got her last shots yesterday and today I gave her her first sentinel pill. She took it like a champ but she loves her food and will eat almost anything.

    I have Dually on Sentinel. Have never used anything else with any of my furbabies. Its a once a month heartworm and flea treatment and it works great, although can be a bit pricey!! I stock piled it when I worked at a vet clinic and got a huge discount!!

    We use Sentinel too. It seems to work pretty good. But it only kills flea eggs not the actuall fleas.. So If you think there are fleas Advantix and heartgard is a good combo.

    i use to use trifexis on all of my dogs but few months ago i heard about all the reviews and that they will not pay for heartworm treatment if your dog was to get it while on the pill so we decieded to change to heart guard as of right now thats what we use on our bully.. But when i go next month i will ask about the sentinel since majority of the user suggest it for their bullies.. anyone know what we could use for ticks?? i walk my bully to a field across the street to use the restroom when we get home ive notice a couple of times she has one or 2 on her.. and my vet told me theres not much out there to repell against ticks all month long like for heartworms

    Brad went to the vet with Bo this am for a pedicure and heart guard refill. He just called and said they are no longer selling it bc there was a recall and are now selling something else that is twice the price. Saw from your post that you're using it... I hadn't heard anything about a recall.. You?? Can I buy it somewhere else?
