    Chumley, Steve had been on it for 11 months till the first sign of the bad affects started and that was the seizures. This is why this stuff is so scary and dangerous as your loved one may not show any signs till way down the road

    Took Walley-Bubba to see the Vet today.
    Thought he had a tick on his back.
    But it was just a small scab.
    Probably from crashing into the underside of the benches outside (will grind down the bolts a bit).

    Weight was 60 lbs - no fat, just big at almost 10 months.

    Also asked her about Trifexis vs Sentinel.
    And also the concern here and on FB and elsewhere.
    She said Sentinel was obsolete and they were forced to reduce their price because they couldn't compete with modern alternatives.
    She was OK with HeartGuard though.

    I also told her that I also intended to give K9 Advantix for fleas and ticks control.
    She seemed fine with that although my idea of staggering the medications every two weeks (first Sentinel, then K9 Advantix two weeks later) was a "you can do that, yes" proposition.
    My goodness the K9 Advantix is expensive - over $72 for a 6 month supply.

    We also met another English Bulldog named Gunner, an awesome 2 year old EB.
    Told his handler about the monthly Bulldog meetup at Crissy Fields - lots of bullies, view of Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, Sandy beach where dogs can run free and free parking (yeah, in San Francisco!).

    So we will be contacting 1-800-PET-MEDS and asking them to contact Banfield to fax the prescription for the Sentinel.

    Sentinel is hardly obsolete, don't know why the Vet would have said that. The heartworm medication is identical to Trifexis the difference is in the flea prevention. I switched for the reasons given at the beginning of this thread and Ace had no observable negative side effects with Sentinel so if I have no problems I most likely will stick with Sentinel

    Yes, our vet even said the same thing about both heartworm meds having the identical ingredients for heartworm and that the difference was with the flea prevention ingredient. Supplementing the Sentinel with K9-Advantix for tic and flea control seems like a good idea but woaaaa the cost! I've never seen a flea on WB with Trifexis. But I'm not comfortable with the bad press Trifexis is receiving. So Sentinel for heartworm and K9-Advantix for fleas and tics (we do go camping in the Sierra's) is my plan for now. If that plan fails for some reason, I will re-visit this issue. But for now, I'm settled.

    Thanks David. I had ordered the 26-50 for WB because he's only 10-1/2 months old even though he does weigh 60 lbs.
    But 1800PETMEDS informed that our Vet had changed the dosage to the 51-100 lbs because of WB's 60 lbs weight (no fat BTW, just a big dog).
    So I decided to ask here and see what came up.
    I sure hope the 50-100 lbs dose will be OK for WB.

    Well, it was a struggle, but WB ate his first Sentinel about 30 minutes ago and he's still alive and well. It took a whole slice of Sargento Mild Chedar though so I hope he doesn't explode. Vet had previously cautioned against cheese because it's fattening. We are off to the groomer now for a bath and nail job.

    We use both Heartguard for Heartworm and Advantix for flea control
