    I've always used Heartguard Plus and Ruckus has had no bad reactions to it. However, it really depends on the dog. For example, I started off using Frontline for flea and tick prevention and we have to do it year round because it normally doesn't get cold enough where we are to kill everything off (except maybe this winter....polar vortex or whatever we're calling it). Ruckus would run around in circles like crazy right after I gave it to him and then he'd crash and act lethargic. I switched to Advantix and haven't had any issues with it at all.

    My vet started Ace on trifexis. How was your experience that made it horrible? I'm wondering if I should ask him to change it.

    Trifexis has been known to KILL dogs… I don't know all the details on what happened, but I will tag @Libra926

    Apparently there is a page on FB too… I would google it and you can probably find more info. I have used Heartgard w/all my dogs, and have NEVER had an issue. Good Luck!!!

    I just called the vets office to see what else they carried for heart work prevention. Considering some of the readings I've been doing from this site, I'm leaving more towards sentinel. They do carry it. The staff member asks me why I wanted to change it. I told her that within the past hour of reading up on trifexis, I've seen many horror stories. She then tells me that they meet with a rep monthly to go over the studies, concerns, etc. lol, whatever...I told her thank you, but I'm not comfortable leaving Ace on it. She politely said she respected that and it would be a good idea to give my concerns to the vet on Aces next follow up (2 weeks). I'm gonna take a file with a bunch of printouts in case he wants to talk me out of it . Just tryin to protect my baby here, just like I would do with my children. Dumb me, didn't do the reading before giving him that first dose a few weeks ago, which I'm the type that usually reads up on everything. Glad I'm on this forum!!

    Don't blame yourself, honestly you have NO idea how many times I've done the same. It's a shame that we have to GOOGLE everything that we do regarding our dogs because we can't trust anybody or any product!!! SMH...

    It just made her really off. She's a wild one and she just laid there for a couple of days- scared us. You could tell she felt bad and didn't want to eat/drink. With the heartguard - she acts like its just another treat and goes on about her business without a hitch. We do not have fleas- so we'll cross that bridge if ever the need arises.

    Yep. The shame is that we have to Google because Vets are meeting with *sales* reps from the companies trying to sell them the product, and get them to sell it to you. This is the standard protocol in most doctors offices. They push treatments, and scoff at other treatments, because they "meet with their rep" (its a person with a briefcase on rollers wearing a black business suit, you've seen them im sure). The discussion is pure marketing, not an unbiased analysis of the studies / concerns.
