Trifexis 351 355
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

I am trying to identify a pill I found on my dogs bed. I think it may be her trifexis pill but i am afraid to give it to her because i do not know 100 percent that it is. I paid 25 dollars for one trifexis pill for her and i cannot waste it if that is what it is. Please help
I have been told that many medications that are not bought through a vet office are not as "strong" or do not have the same dose/quatlity as the one they sell. Is that true? I bought my last batch of trifexis from my vet and I am looking to save a little money this time but want the same product. Thank you
Answer:¬†its sold by the weight of your dog mine is 5 to 10 pounds. weigh your dog, then order the corrcct size ny weight. you last visit to vet should have dogs weight posted.
My dog finds a way to leave behind some of the tablet no matter how I crush it and disguise with other food or liquid. I've also tried leaving it open to the air for a while before giving it to him. He is 9 years old and has never done this with any other medication. He's been getting Trifexis for over a year. Do you have anything with a better taste/smell? Otherwise I will go back to giving him the old separate flea, tick, and heart worm meds.
Answer:¬†try covering it completely in peanut butter ...(cut it in smaller pieces if the pill is too big) This is the ONLY way we can give it to our Husky
