Trifexis 344 348
Great product I have had my Allie (58lbs.) on Trifexis for 2 months now and she is doing very well. She did not experience and side effects while on this medication. She had absolutely no problem eating it and did not spit it out. We made sure to give it to her on a full stomach, so she ate some of her dry food and a couple hot dogs. I'm so happy this medication has worked for her. 08/10/2013
Needs to be favored This medication does the job. It does cause one of my dogs to vomit every other time or so. The pills needs to be favored, it smells like poison and it is difficult to get the dogs to take it. 08/09/2013
Won't Eat It The product works, however it is a nightmare trying to get my dog to swallow this pill. My dog is a lab who loves food and eats everything. Previously we used Sentinel for heartworm. My dog loved that pill and would eat it out of my hand. We switched to Trifexis and my dog refuses to eat it. Spits it out every time. I end up having to cut the pill in small pieces and hid it in banana slices or avocado. They need to add a flavor so dogs will eat it. 08/07/2013
Great Product I have Malteeses, they all use this product for constant protection against fleas and parasites...We live in Florida which is mostly sand, which house fleas and eggs..We have had an infestation of fleas and we used every product to get rid off and prevent and nothing really worked as good as Trifexis...We got it under control and able to prevent future infestations. 08/06/2013
Works amazing for fleas Our Australian Shepherd has been on Trifexis for about 10 months. About 2 months ago we got a new 1 year old Border Collie mix. We DID NOT put her on Trifexis. Here we are, 2 months later and just discovered our new dog has fleas - and I mean a MAJOR infestation! And our original dog on Trifexis that plays & sleeps with her all day? Not a single flea could be found. You don't get better proof than that this stuff works! My dog will not eat it if presented alone, but wrapped in a little slice of ham he has no problem. Going to get this for the 2nd dog tomorrow. 08/05/2013
What the Vet forgets to tell you! I had been using this product for over a year and loved it. I thought wow no fleas, no ticks, and is kills all the worms I really need to worry about. Well, not so fast.....I was told at the vet it did kill ticks! Which it does not if you read the label but I trusted my VET! Also, after bringing a new puppy into the house and starting her on it after she reached six months old, we were discustingly surprised when she came down with a terrible case of tapeworms and yes after questioning the Vet he desided to tell me that it doesn't kill them either. This medication is far to expensive to have to buy supplimental medications to full in the gaps. I am trying Iverhart Max and we will see if it has any negitive effects to speak about. I can already say that at $4.50 a pill...I already give it more stars then Trifexis! 07/23/2013
Failed to prevent roundworms My 2 year old beagle has been using this product for 18 months. He never experienced any negative reactions and it has worked to prevent Heartworm and fleas. Unfortunately my family recently got a new puppy and our older dog got roundworms from him. I am disappointed that this product has failed too prevent parasites like advertised. I will be switching my dog to Heart guard after his worming treatment is over. 07/18/2013
Ticks Works fine but does NOT repel ticks.Not purchasing again.You would think the Vet would have told us about not repelling ticks. 07/17/2013
Great Med I have a Lab Mix, and this is her fifth month on this medication and for us it works great. I'm reading the reviews of pet owners whose dogs had severe reactions to this medication and I want to mention that it doesn't happen to every dog, my 18 month old lab has had no noticable problems with this medication. And to whoever was angry about pulling ticks off their dog i feel i should point out that the box and the descriptions here all say absolutely nothing about treating ticks, and the box actually says not for the treatment or prevention of tick infestations. I live in an area known for its ticks and fleas, and we tried everything frontline, advantage, advantix all of them, the only thing that has successfully gotten rid of our flea problem is this medication its awesome. 07/15/2013
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT I've been giving this to my lab for the past 3 years and have NEVER had any issues! I feed her before hand and then hide her meds in a piece of cheese. I love that it does HW and fleas all at the same time without having to use a topical (since we have a cat and young children). We just got another puppy and he will also be using trifexis :) Since it doesn't do ticks I just regular check her over and she also gets a lyme vaccine each year as well. Of course with any med there will be side affects with some but luckily so far not for us! 07/09/2013
Outstanding and works great I own two black Lab mixes, and boy, was I a sceptic. I had used a topical essential oil made of Texas cedar oil for the past year. I had to admit that this wasn't cutting it, and put both my pups on Frontline Plus. This worked great, for tick control. Long hikes on trails in Wisconsin, and no ticks in the last two months. Alas, nothing prepared us for a sudden flea infestation, luckily caught early. I read a review on this site posted by a vet tech stating she used Trifexis for heart worm and flea control, along with the Scaliber collar for ticks (I'll try the collar next year when the Frontline is used up). I got the Trifexis today and administered. One pup ate the whole tablet, the other had to have it cut up and disguised in turkey. My sensitive tummy pup threw up about four hours later, but after consulting with the vet, we determined that this was the third time in a couple of weeks, and he likely can't handle the occasional people food treats. Wow, I actually started collecting the dying fleas in a little jar to prove the value for the dollar spent. Dogs are still scratching as the fleas die off, and I feel that I made a very wise investment switching to Trifexis from my previous heart worm med. Please don't assume but consult your vet with questions and concerns. I feel the benefits far outweighed the risks. 07/02/2013
good product! needs a new scent/taste 07/02/2013
Works here in Texas I have a male (133lb), and female (85lb). Med works fine, but the side effects of the upset tummy, and "Mommy I don't like the taste of this" makes it a little bit of a challenge to administer. The result, I ground up each dose into a fine powder and mix with a spoon of peanut butter. Is this product cost effective - definitely NOT. Vet recommended b/c they took current script off the shelf. 06/30/2013
Severe side effects Reactions after using for 6months were scary. She started staring at ceiling, fell asleep that way had difficulty walking, this lasted for hours, very scary. The vet was not convinced that trifecta caused this....get on the Internet and these exact symptoms were described by others. Never again! 06/28/2013
A great product for the price. I have had my bulldog on the trifexis for two years now. I love that I can give her one pill once a month and take care of fleas, ticks and other parasites. She never vomited after ingestion. Of course I don't know what it taste like but it can't be the greatest or the worst taste. She doesn't gobble it right up but normally will take it after I tell her it's a treat. 06/21/2013
Yorkie I too was glad to see that someone made a once a month treatment for heartworm and fleas. My Yorkie got sick and vomited almost immediately thereby defeating the whole purpose. After long consideration, I've decide against feeding my dog a pesticide. Think about it, it's a pesticide, would you eat it? I'll stick to the topicals just to be on the safe side. It's not that big a deal, but it's your call. 06/10/2013
OUTSTANDING Adding my .02 I am currently owned by my fourth Saint. These guys are sadly the Taj Mahal for fleas and using topical products just makes them run to the underside. While I lived up north i used eletronic pest boxes and they worked great, but after moving to Florida I started thinking the fleas were on steroids and we simply could not get rid of them. The vet had me try comfortis and within 30 minutes those suckers were history. When Trifexis came out I talked to my vet and we decided it was a good thing and we were right this stuff just works. I must admit the stuff smells horrible and no my Sasha will not touch it however I have always taught my saints to sit, open and down the hatch. I should also add that not always but still sometimes even after being on it for almost 3 years now he still does throw up thankfully I work from home and he just comes in my office and says he needs to go now and he throws up outside. I feed him a full meal and wait 15 minutes and then give him the two pills (Two because of his size and weight) if he throws up it is usually within 3-4 hours so no biggie the meds are in and working so no need to redose. I would like to find the inventor and give them a big ole sloppy kiss for this stuff because I love my saints more than most people and knowing they don't have to go through the fleas and the subsquent stuff they cause makes the throwing up worth it. Pricy but well worth the money! 06/05/2013
SEVERE REACTIONS I posted an earlier review stating my lab puppy developed a rash on her stomach & ears that got worse as I continued to give her Trifexis. She had puss filled bumps all over her stomach area. After eliminating a possible food allergy, I finally realized skin reddening & dermatitus was a side effect of this drug. I immediately took her off the medicine. My pup also had some unexplainable behavior that all coincidently started with this drug. Decreased appetite, decreased activity, occasional trembling, which we now realize were seizures!! I think my pup had every side effect possible of this medication!! I am re-posting my review as I had not put together all the pieces and side effects when I originally posted. User BEWARE. Keep a close eye on your pet while using this drug and stop administering IMMEDIATELY when you have reactions. My lab pup's mild reactions only got worst. I feel horrible for giving my dog this drug!! 06/03/2013
I have 3 I have 3 Golden Retrievers that do not like the tablet and spit out the Trifexis. When I give it to them the pieces go on the floor . I have tried peanutbutter and other foods to help get them to accept the large and hard tablet. Now I have had to cut the tablet into 4 pieces and put down their throats. I wish this product was more pleasant to use. 06/02/2013
Awesome product I have had my dogs, different breeds, on Trifexis and have never had a problem! No vomiting, upset stomach, or any other negative reactions. In Louisiana we have fleas like crazy and while on this pill I never have a problem! Wonderful combination and great results! 06/02/2013
Buy it!!!! I have been using Trifexis for almost a year now and have been going to the dog park with my dog on Trifexis since I got him(about 1year). He has not had any health problems thanks to Trifexis. The added ingredient of flea control has also helped battle any fleas that might be immune to my dogs flea meds. No worms and no fleas! Yea! I will always use this medication. 06/01/2013
If you are concerned about vomiting or not, you should give this flea medication over 24 hours. It's very strong and you can break it up into halves or fourths and give it with organic goat yogurt (good for dogs immune systems) I bet you won't experience any vomiting if you administer the dosage this way. 05/30/2013
Extremely Effective An amazing "all-in-one" treatment for your pets!! 05/28/2013
This product kills the fleas ... I had used Frontline Plus for years, but switched to Trifexis at the recommendation of my vet because it did not kill the fleas last year. I was advised that this product does not work on ticks, although in some cases it may. So far this spring it has prevented the fleas (yes!), but my indoor dog seems to be a carrier of the ticks; I've found six biting seed ticks - on me - in the last month alone. As a result, I'll need to switch again... and try K9Advantix this time.... hopefully it will repel the ticks before they catch a ride.... Both our dogs liked the taste of the tablet. 05/27/2013
I love this!! I had used another product on my larger dogs for years and then we got this rescue and the vet said to try this instead of the topical stuff that I used to use and I love it!! It works great! Also I don't have to worry about my little girl hugging him like I did with the topical stuff!! I have been using this for over a year with no problems!! I have to hide the pill inside of a pill pocket but other than that it's great!! 05/27/2013
We switched to this product after 12 years of success with Frontline/Heartguard combo every month on three dogs. We had one flea breakout recently so the vet switched us to Trifexis. Our 16 pound terrier mix VERY sick after taking it. We had several costly visits to the vet over a 2 week period following in which all the diagnostics came up with nothing and it all pointed back to the Trifexis. Our other two dogs showing signs that the intestinal "bug" prevention in the RX did not work. It wasn't worth seeing our dog suffer with paralysis and "stoned" for two weeks. Will go back to Frontline and Heartguard combo. 05/20/2013
Vomiting First, this pill was giant for my 20 lb. pug. I ended up breaking it into pieces and coating it with peanut butter (as recommended) and he got it down after finishing his breakfast. An hour later, he vomited three times, twice kibble came up, the third time just liquid. I never had this issue with other oral flea/heartworm medications. And, this one is much more expensive. Maybe just not right for this pug.... 05/14/2013
Rash developed My lab puppy developed a mild rash on her stomach & ears that got worse as I continued to give her Trifexis. She got puss filled bumps that I could not get to go away. I finally realized skin reddening & dermatitus was a side effect of this medicine so I am immediatly switching her medicine. I will not use this product any longer. Each animal is different but I will not subject mine to side effects. 05/14/2013
Great Product This works well for my 10 month old Black Lab. I found a great way to administer the pill to him. I put it into a little ball of peanut butter and he takes it right down, with no problems. 05/13/2013
Love It No fleas after one day We had terrible fleas -gone in one day. 8 larger dogs. 05/11/2013

Answer:¬†The Trifexis I give my 8 month old Jack Russell I buy from Petmeds. It's the same box and packaging the Trifexis sold by his Vet supplies.Not from Australia. It's $3 cheaper for a 6 month supply on Petmeds with free shipping so I buy from them. So in my case the answer to your question is FALSE.
Answer:¬†I gave my Jack Russell the 10-20 lb dose since he was 6 lbs. He shot up to 10 in no time so in my case it was fine. 2-3 doses. Best to check with your Vet. Good Luck!
She's probably been pregnant for about a month?
Answer:¬†The only one that knows the answer to that is your Vet. Check with them first! Good Luck with the little ones!
What is a safe tick preventative for my dogs who are currently on Trifexis? Can frontline be used in combination with Trifexis?
