    Default PUPPY INCOMING...FLEA/TIC MEDICINE?

    New puppy arriving in 2 weeks. Wondering what everyone uses nowadays for flea and tic medicine?

    With my last bulldog, I was using Trifexis for his flea, tic, worm medicine. Is this still ok? Or what is recommended?

    I use the Advantix II for flea and tick and Heartgard Plus for worms. Advantix is ok but I hate how it makes him flake after I apply it. I have never used Trifexis.

    I use Frontline Plus for flea and tick medicine and Heartgard Plus for worms, which is what our vet recommended. If Trifexis worked for your last bulldog, I'm sure it still ok to use. Enjoy your new puppy!

    DO NOT use Trifexis for your dogs, there is huge lawsuit pending from pet owners losing their dogs to complications resulting from Trifexis. I use Sentinel tabs, and have used Advantix II and Frontline as a topical.

    Sentinel is tabs, but most of the flea/tick repellant is topical. Be wary of using ANY new product out there on the market, my vet explained to me that she likes using the older products because the long term side effects have been studied.

    Please do not use Trifexis, we know of bullies that have died from the side effects. Many dogs have, there are articles and pages dedicated to it on Facebook.


    We use Sentinel tablets for heartworm/fleas and because we are in a high tick area, we use Vectra 3D topical..... we have used both for man, many years on all our bullies without issue

    Do not let your vet talk you into Nexguard --my Bully has Megaesophagus (possibly for life--they do not know) because of that medication. I posted a few links to information about Nexguard and Bravecto--they are both new to the market (about 2-3 years), and some vets (mine) push them as safe medications, when they are not.

    It is safe to deworm every month. I use heartgard/nexgard combination for my dogs.
