Sentinel 550 557
save your money this does not work I used to give my dogs Progam pills but they no longer make them so being a good mom I looked for another pill form flea treatment. I took my dogs to the vet so I could get a Rx to get them on Sentinal. This Summer my poor dogs have red bumps and they are always scratching. My husband said that he thinks that have fleas and of course I said that was impossible because they were on Sentinal pills. To my horror I found out that Sentinal DOES NOT WORK! 08/25/2014
I bought this for my 7 Lbs pomeranian.It did not do anything.I actually felt like it acted more like a magnet than anything else.I bought a 6-pack and donot even know what to do with the rest. 08/25/2014
Doesn't prevent fleas Totally useless in South Florida or anywhere where your dog can pick up a flea outside, because it doesn't kill them (only prevents their eggs from hatching). Was forced by the "clinic" to switch from Revolution to this garbage, it is totally useless. Took an entire week before my dog got fleas and is totally miserable. 08/20/2014
SENTINEL IS NOT A FLEA/TICK TREATMENT!!! Seems to be a LOT of confusion over what meds for what issues. A summary from information collected from my vet: FLEA/TICK meds: CapStar-kills fleas for 24 hrs. Generally used as a quick kill for bad infestations, sold in single doses Comfortis-only kills adult fleas, NOT ticks Frontline Plus-kills fleas, ticks & has IGR (insect growth regulator). NexGard-kills fleas, ticks-most expensive I've seen probably because it's new(er) K9 Advantix II-kills fleas, ticks & has IGR. Repels mosquitoes, lice, biting flies, gnats, fleas. Drs. Foster & Smith claim to use on their dogs. Cheaper than Frontline Plus on their website & Frontline seems to have lost it's effectiveness on my dogs so I'm trying this since it sounds better for less money. These are the main, possibly ONLY once monthly meds that kill BOTH fleas/ticks. HEARTWORM meds: Heartgard-kills heart/round/hookworms. Doesn't kill whips so if your dog fancies eating feces, try Sentinel-kills heart/round/hook/whip worms & FLEA EGGS ONLY, not adults & not ticks! Trifexis-kills heart/round/hook/whip worms & adult fleas Interceptor-DISCONTINUED, replaced with Sentinel Hope this helps! I spent days researching, read lots of scary reviews for virtually all these products! CHECK WITH YOUR VET BEFORE USING ANYTHING AS SOME MEDS HAVE BREED SPECIFIC INTERACTIONS!!! My personal experience has been great with Sentinel, used for YEARS on my Heeler & Pom. Will post update after using K9 Advantix II. I used Frontline Plus for years also but as I said, not so good anymore. Had to Capstar my Pom last year even though I was using Frontline. 08/19/2014
tastes awful We used to use heart guard and my dog was always excited for a tasty 'treat' but he refuses to eat sentinel and even in cheese, cream cheese, apple, ground into his dinner (not in pb, he can't eat that)‚Ä¶ he can still smell/taste it enough that he refuses to eat any of those treats with it. No wonder it is on sale now nobody wants it. cannot rate effectiveness because I cannot get him to eat it 08/19/2014

Hello, hope you are doing well. Friends told me to reach out to you since you do such a great job in customer service. I have 2 labs to care for. What is the effectiveness of Sentinel (Lufenuron/Milbemycin oxime) versus Trifexis (Spinosad/Milbemycin Oxime). The ingredients are different but I don't have enough information on the second ingredient in Sentinel. Any help please. Thank you.
Answer:¬†I don't know about Trifexis but save your money do not buy Sentinal! It does not work. I learned this the hard way.
Answer:¬†Both medications are effective to prevent Heartworms, roundworms, hookworms and whipworms. Their difference is the Spinosad ingredient in Trifexis kills adult fleas while the Lufenuron in Sentinel will only sterilize flea eggs instead of killing any adult fleas.
Do we change the original,schedule to the new date
Answer:¬†I try to stay on schedule. If you would like to switch to a new date it's not the end of the world but I would try to stay as close to the 30 days as possible.

Answer:¬†I would give the 26-50# just to be safe.
