Trifexis 379 383
trying something new My vet suggested this for my new shih tzu puppy. I was warned that there may be vomiting after the first dose and told not to give another dose/tablet. Although my puppy initially picked the tablet out and dropped next to her bowl, continuing to eat her dinner, I placed it back in the bowl and it disappeared. Awaited the vomiting but my puppy's stomach seemed to digest it just fine. So far, I like the all-in-one dose approach. 06/16/2011
Great Combination For those of you complaining that your dog was throwing up this pill you need to tell your vet to give your dog Metoclopramide which is an anti-emetic. You give it to your dog an hour before you give Trifexis and your dog will not throw up. I had my dog on Comfortis (spinosad...the flea killing drug in this pill) before and had to give him Metoclopramide so he wouldn't throw up. Not a problem. LOVED the product. On Trifexis my dog doesn't have to take the anti-emetic pill, I just make sure to mix in some chicken with his food after I give him the pill so he will eat. This combination pill saved me money by combining Interceptor with Comfortis. Awesome! My only complaint is that my dog still scratches. He stopped scratching after being on comfortis for an hour. 05/11/2011
So far so good The reason I give this product a 4 rating is due to the fact that it does not treat ticks. I gave to my Shih Tzus with food and so far I have not seen a flee on them yet. They did not throw it up either. I like the idea that this product prevents heartworms, flea infestations, whipworm, hookworm, and roundworms which is great for the price. I purchased this product from my vet first to see the reaction and if my pets would not get infested with fleas. I check them daily and so far no fleas yet. Before I was using a topical treatment that required me to isolate them for 24 hours after treatment and now I do not have to do that. If I see a tick on my pets, then I will have no other choice but to go back to the topical product until they come out with an effective product that treats ticks as well. 04/27/2011
Great Product! I was so happy to hear that a combination medication was available to control all internal parasites and kills fleas. The only negative aspects are the cost and it does not help with ticks, however, I am still going to keep all my dogs on Trifexis. I did not have any problems with vomitting with any of my dogs, I followed the directions, mixed the tabs in with some steamed rice and chicken and they chowed down.. :) 04/05/2011
LOVE IT Feed your pet a normal meal then give this pill. If you do not do this your pet will throw it back up & waste your money. My Bassets are on this and I LOVE IT!!!!! kills fleas within 30 minutes! If you look on the package your pill comes in it clearly states to give with a meal, so follow the directions and you will not have a problem! 03/28/2011

Our 12-year old Golden Retriever is here in Mexico with us and I think he has mange. The prescribed cure is mite relief but that seems to come with flea control products.
He's already on monthly Trifexis, that has flea control. So how do I treat his mange when the products for mites also treat fleas and he's already being treated for fleas? I don't want to overmedicate him. Please help as we are all miserable.
My dog has been on Trifexis for several years now. Normally, we live in N. Calif. but we are currently living in Mexico for 6 mo.
Our 12 year old Golden Retriever is licking at many areas on his legs and haunches and I think he may have mange. I looked it up and it said it's caused by mites.
Does Trifexis protect against mites? If not, what can I do for him?
I've heard that a dog must be slowly weaned off of Trifexis if you discontinue use. It that true?
Answer:¬†I am not a vet but have asked several vet friends and none have said this was necessary. in fact I would take your pet off it immediately. it is not safe.
Answer:¬†You can talk to your veterinarian about switching to a different heartworm medication and what time
frame would be appropriate. There is usually a 1 month interval between giving heartworm prevention
medications, but that will ultimately be up to the veterinarian.
Our 8 month old puppy is 53lbs. A 6pk of 40.1-60lbs may be unusable in 2 months. Can we use the 60.1 tablet?
