Trifexis 379 383
Trifexis works better than any other! I have a 3 year old pit bull and he has very sensitive skin. Mosquitos and fleas would make him break out all over before he started taking Trifexis. Since he's been using Trifexis (about 2 years), bugs stay away from him. Only downside is that I have to cut up the pill into 1/4 and give it to him in lots of peanut butter or he won't eat it. He does not have any side effects after he takes this pill. 03/31/2014
Seems to cause trouble for some I switched from Sentinel to Trifexis because we got it free from a relative who worked at a vet. We gave it to our dog (6-yr old lab mix) at the beginning of the month. Three weeks later, our dog got diarrhea and a couple days after that vomited while at home. After taking him to the vet, bloodwork came back for him being positive for roundworm. I can't say for a fact that Trifexis was the cause of all that, but after seeing some reviews on Trifexis (including here on 1800petmeds) about nausea, vomiting and diarrhea for some dogs (although nothing about roundworm), I've quickly decided to go back to Sentinel for treatments. If you do choose Trifexis, just monitor your dog and know ahead of time the possible side effects. 03/30/2014
It WORKS! I've been through it with him. Fleas, the scratching, the gnawing, persistent flea dirt , I finally cornered the vet, FIND SOMETHING THAT WILL WORK! Trifexis has done it. I cant say it's inexpensive, he's a big boy it takes double for him. But he is protected. No more fleas, scratching, gnawing, chasing his tail to get to them. This Mama is happy- 03/14/2014
great results I have used Trifexus for over a year now for my Malamute 96 lbs and my male German Shepard 1 1/2 years old have hav e had no problems with fleas or anything else and they get a HEALTHY report from the Vet on their annual visits. I strongly recommend it. 03/12/2014
Works great but horrible smell! We have two lab/shepherd mix, that are our children. Our Vet discontinued offering Sentinel and now only offers Trifexis. The pills smell horrible!! Our dogs refuse to take them, we've tried peanut butter, beef and chicken, but they can smell the chemicals in the pills, if we can smell it surely THEY can. We have to split the pills in half and shove them down their throats, not a very pleasant experience for our 15-year old. Going to see if our Vet will give us a prescription for Sentinel. 03/11/2014
I noticed my dog would just lay around for 2 days after her med. (trifexis). Seemed like she was not feeling good at all. One day I had the news on tv and the were discussing the side affects of trifexis. The report was some dogs had died due to the meds. So anyway I took my dog off it. Now I am so confused as what to do. I have read good reviews but also bads ones. 03/09/2014
My dog hates this I have tried month after month to give this to my mini poodle. I can't hide it in anything: cheese, peanut butter, steak, nothing. This stuff smells horrible and the pill is so large. I am telling my vet I refuse to keep shoving this down my dog's throat. I'll find something else or find another vet. 02/24/2014
Side effects Be very watchful of dog when first starting and each month after you give. I have two dogs both same age and one dog suffered seizure. When taking walk he just stopped walking and fell over. Quite frightening as I had to carry him home and in about 1/2 hour he was fine. Did not think it was Trifexis. Then the next month again it happened. so please be aware as the side effects can happen. Other dog is fine and product works so owners just need to be watchful 02/23/2014
Not so good Going back to Heartguard. 02/16/2014
Horrible Taste I have been using Trifexis for years but every month it is a terrible battle to try and get her to take the tablet. I don't blame her either. The tablet smells terrible!! It's supposed to be chewable but my dog runs from it. She won't take it. I've tried mixing it with peanut butter, cheese, her favorite food, etc. I've tried breaking it down into a powder and mixing it so she can't see it. But she still smells it!! She absolutely hates this pill. Why anyone would invent a necessary product that does not both smell and taste delicious to a dog is beyond me. That should be the #1 test that it has to pass in the Quality Assurance cycle. Well, maybe #2 if effectiveness is #1. Anyway, she hates this pill. I have tried everything. I don't blame her because to be honest it smells terrible even to me. I get it on my fingers and it's disgusting. So now both my dog and I both dread Trifexis day. So I'm looking around at other options now. Has to be something as effective but better tasting. 02/13/2014
I was using topical for fleas and ticks and no matter which one I used the fleas seemed to be immune to all of the topicals. After switching to Trifexis after the second dose I have not had any fleas on my dog or in the house. I will use Trifexis. Had no problems with vomiting usually give with a piece of cheese. 02/12/2014
Stop the vomitt Trifexis is a great product. I wanted to try again. It was suggested to me that I give a small can of wet dog food with the Trifexis. It worked like a charm. I am lucky to have a vet assistant (actually 2 of them) as very close friends. They sure gave me great advice. Glad I actually listened for once. (LOL) 02/02/2014
Fantastic Product I have a 92 lb Boxer. I made sure I fed her first then I broke the tablet in half and smothered it in peanut butter. She ate the whole thing. Within the hour she stopped scratching and hasn't scratched since. It has been 3 weeks so far. Only thing, she did vomit once within a 24 hour period but has been fine since. I highly recommend this product. Some people complain the pill is too big, but I've given my dog biscuits bigger than this tablet. As I said, I broke it in half and put peanut butter on it. She loved it. And, no more fleas!!!!! 01/22/2014
It works great, but... I have not encountered a single problem with this product and I have been using it on all three of my dogs for the past six months... Except my dogs HATE the taste. I have to shove it down their throats. Other than that, it's a great all-in-one product and I will continue to use it as well as recommend it to all my fellow pet lovers! 01/10/2014
Works but allergic reaction I tried this because my mother-in-law was referred from her vet to give it to her dog and she told me to get it for my dog also. Yes, it does work great at killing and keeping away the fleas. BUT... both of are dogs had allergic reactions to the medicine. Hers more so than mine. My little one is broke out all over now from a allergic reaction to her skin from it. I know it is from the medicine and not fleas because we haven't had them since September. It did not start until I gave her the pill about a week or so ago. Now have to go to the vet to get her a shot to keep the itching and swelling down. If you are considering this for your dog, please please please go over it very well with your veterinarian to make sure this is the right medicine for him or her. 01/02/2014
sticktight fleas I bought this product from my vet as I liked the idea of all in one. However a couple of weeks after taking the first dose our golden mix started chewing and licking her tummy and the inside of her leg. She had little red spots on her which became inflamed due to her constant chewing. I took her in to see the vet and told him that the only change was to the trifexis. He treated her and the next month it returned again. Another vet noticed a sticktight flea in the inflamed area. Not sure where she picked up this flea (bird/chicken flea,) but they burry in the skin like a tick. Called the trifexis company and they do not cover that type of flea. I will now have to go back to the topical and heartworm separately to make sure our dogs do not get this nasty sticktight flea. 12/26/2013
urination? I have 3 frenchies and this product is awesome. However, my female urinated in her sleep for a few nights after giving it to her. She did it 3 out of the 4 months given to her. Anyone else have this issue? I don't know if its related but wanted to ask. She has never done that before and it happened about 3 nights after being given (for each night). Maybe just a coincidence? I thought she slept extra heavy ? 12/21/2013
Love its 2 pills in one We had been using different products for fleas and heartworm. The pill is large and we break it up and serve it with some peanut butter. 12/07/2013
works great My Welsh Corgi will NOT eat this pill! I have mixed it with everything: beef, chicken, lunchmeat, but every time he would separate the pill and spit it out. I bought a mortar and pestle to crush the pill and then soak it up with lunch meat and he readily gobbles it down. 12/01/2013
Great product My dog is extremely allergic to flea bites. The popular topical products work by killing the fleas AFTER they bite, this caused major problems for my Irish Setter. This product gets rid of the fleas without the biting and the results are immediate. Give with food as directed and see the results within 30 minutes. Pretty amazing and worth the additional cost. Finally some relief for our fury family member. 11/26/2013
Give Trifexis on a FULL stomach We gave our Shih-Tzu Trifexis and she threw up all over the place. We took her to the Vet and it was stressed to us to not give her the pill on an empty stomach. A lot like human pills, many of them you shouldn't take on an empty stomach. So, please always give your dog Trifexis on a full stomach. 11/10/2013
12 lb silver yorky male 1 yr old works well with little to no side effects that I can tell. We have Been using it for 6 months. no fles or heart worms / worms period $104 for 6 month supply 11/06/2013
Trifexis is a Failure ! I'm sorry to have to say that Trfexis does not work well on getting rid of fleas. My 2 year old German Shepherd had been on Frontine plus and I noticed fleas on her 22 days after applying it. So, I applied Advantix II and a week later I still had fleas. I re-applied Advantix II and still I have fleas. One week later I gave my dog Trifexis and I still have fleas. One week later I added Advantix II again and finally no fleas. It appears to take at least two separate products in order to get rid of fleas these days. 11/03/2013
Love It I have all 3 of my dogs on this product. It works great. I live out in the middle of the woods and my dogs used to always have fleas and ticks. But since i made the switch it works great. 10/27/2013
Great Product We started off using Sentinel which works great. But we noticed that fleas were not dying, so we switched to Trifexis. For starters, our dogs will take any pill you give them...so asking about taste is not relevant and if my dog could talk, I might have to ask them. This products kills fleas....fast. Within an hour. Never had an issue, great product. 10/02/2013
Great Product I use this with all three of my Rottweilers. I did discontinue with my female while she was nursing. My 6 month old pups (65+pounds) and our female tolerate it well. They will not chew it, but swallow easily wrapped in cheese! I'm sure they would eat it if it was peanut butter flavored! 09/28/2013
Not one flea! Have been using this almost a year and never have had a flea on our cockapoo. Vet said to give with a little cheese before eating and have had no problems. We winter in Florida where fleas are everywhere and this product is amazing, worth the cost. Highly recommend. 09/20/2013
Good-careful reading... Trifexis is good for overall protection. Sure, it does not cover everything under the sun but it is not intended to. Any pet owner who keeps their dog/cat in good condition should not have any significant issues with this product. BTW-Don't read too much into a previous reviewer's endorsement of "Iverhart Max" as this is a generic for Heartguard . As we all know, those products have nothing to do with flea prevention... 09/14/2013
Been using for 2.5 years I've been using Trifexis as my flea prevention. My Peke will be 3 y/o next month and hasn't had an issue. I did split the pill when he was growing and his weight averaged between 9.9 and 10.5 pounds. I spoke with my vet about splitting the pill for the 10.1-20 lb dog. I was comfortable doing it knowing that I may have to give it earlier than 4 weeks. My Peke is now 12 lbs and I gave him the whole pill for the first time - split into 2 doses, one in the am and the other half in the pm. No issues at all. No vomiting (he takes with food) and no lethargy). I would recommend this medication. 09/14/2013
I switched my pug to trifexis and after about 2 months she began getting bumps on her ears. I took her to the vet- he put her on antibiotics but wasn't 100% sure what the bumps were. I asked if it could have been a side effect from the trifexis since that was the only thing I could think of that had changed for her and he assured me it was not. He said if the antibiotics did not work they would biopsy the bumps. I used the antibiotics and the bumps did not go away. I decided to not continue with the trifexis just to see what happens. I went back to her old flea prevention medicine and the bumps began to get smaller after the first month and then were completely gone by the 2nd month. I was skeptical with using the product because I did see mixed reviews but my vet assured me it was safe. I would definitely not recommend this product. 09/08/2013

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?
