    Speaking of costs, and we would never do it just to save money, but was the presciption website cheaper for Sentinel than getting Trifexis from the local vet?
    I agree, my change of medication had nothing to do with price, but yes Sentinel is less expensive than Trifexis.

    Neither medication treats ticks. Sorry I may have inadvertently mentioned somewhere in one of my posts flea and ticks but neither medication states treating of ticks.

    Some of you know my stand on Trifexis. I would cut off my arms and legs before letting Vegas or baby O take a dose of Trifexis. I became aware of the poison after sweet Steve Slocum passed away. Once my research started..I came across the FB page Trifexis kills Dogs. Here is her post from this morning.


    " One year ago, on this date, our dog Peaches suffered and died after ONE dose of Trifexis. She was six years old and perfectly healthy, the sweetest dog we have ever had. Her "murder" by Elanco, the mfg of Trifexis, inspired my daughter and I to start this site, TRIFEXIS KILLS DOGS. The site has grown, and, sadly, there are so many reports of dogs dying and being maimed by Trifexis that it has become very clear that Trifexis is a poison that no one should ever give to dogs. Why most vets refuse to recognize this is beyond belief. They seem to blindly follow the directives of Elanco. Vioxx killed many people and was therefore recalled; Trifexis has killed many dogs and yet it is still being prescribed. Please sign our petition, keep the stories coming, report adverse effects to Elanco, which by law must then report those adversities to the FDA. Sooner or later we will get this drug banned. Meanwhile, our hearts go out to those of you who have lost animals by poisoning. Today we will celebrate our dog Peaches' life, not her death, with a little ceremony. She would have been seven years old. Rest in Peace, Peaches."


    Those of you who choose to use Trifexis....that's what it is, a choice. I appreciate this thread, it brings up a topic that can light the fire in a negative way for many people. The fight against Trifexis is huge part of my everyday life. Every morning I see Diane post the photo/slogan combo I made for her. She posts it everyday and will continue to post it every day until it's been recalled. Great job in keeping things civil everybody.

    We only give our babies Sentinel, there for a time you could not get Sentinel and we knew about Trifexis so we gave them Heatguard, but it does not work on fleas, but it was in the winter time when fleas aren't that bad. Now Sentinel is back and they are back on it. No Trifexis in my house.

    No vet has ever offered trifexis to us .. but I knew of Steve through my friend @Libra926, and to witness her grief over the full story of his death .. and to see not only Cheyl but also Diane post about it. Lets just say that I wish animal medications were put under as close scrutiny as human medications were!!! Unfortunately .. animals can't SUE!!!!!!!

No nausea, no lethargy and no unusual behavior at all. Ace seemed normal after the dosage. Plenty of energy, appetite, and desire for play and mischief as usual. The heartworm medication being the same as Trifexis and the difference being the flea medication so if I have no problems with fleas related to the change in medication then I most likely will stay with the Sentinel. Hope this helps @Jennifer Clark

    Glad to hear he didn't have a reaction to the Sentinel.

    We have decided to switch from Trifexis to Sentinel to prevent heartworm, roundworms, hookworms fleas.
    Our decision is based on two good reasons.
    1. There are just too many alarming posts on the Internet advising against Trifexis.
    2. Trifexis costs $98 (6 months supply, 40-60 lb dogs) versus Sentinel costing $47.69 (6 months supply, 26-50 lb dogs).
    I've been paying about $34 for each Trifexis for the past 8 months at the vets. This because Walley-Bubba was growing from 8 lbs at 8 weeks to 60 lbs now at almost 10 months (no fat at all).
    So It was not recommended to get a cheaper, 6-month supply due to his weight changing. But now he is stabilizing a bit and will probably end up closer to 70 lbs when fully grown.

    We will initially get the lower weight dose of Sentinel (26-50 lbs) because the next step up is 60-120 lbs) which may be too strong.
    We will discuss that with the vet before ordering since we need a prescription anyway.
    We will also ask about a topical for tick control and may try whatever the vet recommends although we have been luck so far in not finding any.

    With Sentinel as well as Trifexis be sure and administer with a meal. Ace eats his biggest meal in the evening and so right before setting his bowl down to eat I administered the Sentinel with a little melted butter on it then immediately feed Ace and he ate all his meal as per usual.

    To say I was relieved would be an understatement. Ace exhibited no negative effects and I am grateful
