Sentinel 590 597
Definitely Effective My Beagle pup has been taking Sentinel since I adopted her over a year ago. Very effective! I only wish it came in a more meaty chewable form. For now, I place the tablet in a meaty pill pocket and Sadie takes it gladly. 03/25/2015
This Product is Great! We rescued Maggie, our golden doodle, who unfortunately had heartworm and had to go through scary and expensive treatments when we got her. We will always have her on a heartworm treatment. She has been on Sentinel for over 6 months, I just ordered more. This product does not make her lethargic for 48 hours after receiving a dose like heartgard did. She is completely fine after taking this product. My only concern is that it does not protect better against fleas. However, we have not had any issues with heartworm or fleas since our dog has been receiving this product and that makes me a happy mom! :) 03/22/2015
not sure... My dog is a collie-sheltie mix...He started on Interceptor and was fine on it...untilk they took it off the market. Then he went to Trifexis...and just didn't seem right. Nolw he is on Sentinel and he scratches and itches like crazy....vet says there are no fleas...iut is an allergy. When will they come out with a medication like Interceptor for these breeds????? 03/14/2015
Great product I live in Fl and Sentinel is the only heart worm and flea preventive that I will use - have used it since at least 2000 on several different Cocker Spaniels. I like that the dose is geared closer to various weights ..meaning 10-25lbs vs other drugs which may be for dogs 15-30lbs. To me it is better for my 24lb dog vs getting a drug that is for dogs up to 20% heavier. Fl is flea and heart worm capital of the USA and I have never had any issues with either pest ...but yes, occasionally (maybe once a year) I may see a live flea on my dog but sentinel seems to do what it is supposed to do by breaking the flea breeding cycle so the rare odd live flea never becomes an infestation in my house, yard or on my dog. 03/02/2015
Does not protect against Fleas My dog recently got fleas while at a border. He is on sentinel and it didn't provent him from getting fleas. 03/02/2015

Answer:The difference between Sentinel and Sentinel Spectrum is that Sentinel Spectrum also deworms for tapeworms while Sentinel does not. Both prevent heartworms, controls fleas and treats for hookworms, roundworms and whipworms.
Answer:Sentinel is safe to use on pups 8 weeks of age and older. However, if your pup has not been on any heartworm prevention, it will need a heartworm test before being put on any as it could already be infected.
We are away for 3 months this winter. I brought 3 months supply of Sentinel with us for our mixed breed 37 lb 3 year old dog. She gets car sick so I also brought Bonine per our vets recommendations.. A few days ago before taking her in the car I accidentally gave her Sentinel instead of Bonide. She threw up in the car but I just thought the Bonide wasn't working. Then I realized my mistake. I only have one Sentinel pill left and I should have two for dosing on Feb 15 and March 15. What should I do? .
Answer:Don't be concerned about your dog getting 2 doses of Sentinel as it is very safe. Just purchase another dose for the missing treatment.
Answer:I'm not sure what exactly you are asking but I'll say this...a one month dose equals one pill individually sealed in a foil pack...so a 6 month supply equals 6 individual pills sealed in 6 packs...a 12 month supply equals 12 pills/packs.
Does this help? I hope so
Answer:Thank you for your question. There are six doses per pack.
Answer:I am not a vet and strongly suggest that you consult a vet regarding your question, with that said, personally I would not subject my dog to so much medication. It may be perfectly ok but I always err on the side of caution and balance the severity of the problem with the desired result and possible harm.
if it helps - sentinel takes time to impact an established flea population in your home stomping grounds ( yard, house etc.) The drug doesn't kill fleas outright but rather it breaks their breeding cycle so keep in mind that for the drug to work established fleas have to actually bite and feed off your dog, then after they do they are basically sterile and can't breed.
Think about that..it takes a few months considering the life span of a flea to see results...all the prior flea eggs have to hatch, the fleas feed, live their short life then die without reproducing..then after that happens your area is relatively flea free.
I like sentinel because it seems less toxic to my dog, and I live in FL..flea capital of the USA but never have had a issue with fleas after the 1st few months.
Finally, I did adopt a stray with many fleas from the shelter...my vet gave her an immediate flea killing pill which the vet said would wear off after 24 hours or so...all the fleas on the poor dog were killed then I started sentinel ...maybe ask you vet for the same pill ( I forget the name) it was pretty cheap and per the vet is 100% safe with sentinel after 24 hours or so.
Hope this helps
