Trifexis is a monthly, chewable tablet for dogs that kills fleas, prevents heartworm disease, and treats and controls adult hookworm, roundworm and whipworm infections. Trifexis combines two trusted active ingredients to provide protection for your dog against these dangerous parasites. Trifexis starts working within 30 minutes from administration of this medicine to kill fleas and has been proven to kill all biting fleas within 4 hours. Trifexis also kills flea eggs before they can mature, which puts an end to the flea life cycle. Trifexis prevents heartworm disease by killing microfilariae and larvae from maturing into adult heartworms. Trifexis comes in a tasty beef-flavored tablet (made from pork liver and hydrolyzed soy) for ease of administration to your dog.

For:
Dogs (at least 8 weeks of age and weighing at least 5 lbs)

Benefits:
Trifexis is used to prevent heartworm disease, and treat and control adult hookworm, roundworm and whipworm infections.

Active Ingredients:
spinosad & milbemycin oxime

Cautions:
Treatment with fewer than three monthly doses after the last exposure to mosquitoes may not provide complete heartworm prevention. Prior to administration of Trifexis, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infection. Use with caution in breeding females. The safe use of Trifexis in breeding males has not been evaluated. Use with caution in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy. Make sure to tell your veterinarian what other medication you are giving to your pet. Quite often your veterinarian may prescribe two different medications, even if a drug interaction may occur. In this case, your veterinarian may vary the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. This medication is generally well tolerated with other commonly prescribed medications. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together. Allergic reactions to medications may occur. Be sure to inform VetSource and your veterinarian if your pet has any known drug sensitivities or allergies. If your pet displays symptoms of an allergic reaction, call your veterinarian immediately or go to a veterinary emergency clinic. Symptoms may include but are not limited to: swollen lips, tongue, face, airways; difficulty breathing; agitation; profuse salivation; vomiting; widespread hives and itching.


Side Effects:
Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, decreased activity, itching, redness and inflammation of the skin. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.

Usage:
Trifexis should be given orally as directed veterinarian. Give Trifexis with food for maximum effectiveness.

          I have been administering this medicine to my ACD for almost a year now and she loves it so i do too! Im not a fan of the price but it does exactly what it says. In the past using other flea preventatives we still have infestations in the house during the season but this has kept all fleas at bay! i was worried at first with a lot of negative reviews on the internet with this medication so i just kept a real close eye on her for the first few hours after the first dose to see if she was going to have any side effects. Because it doesn't prevent ticks she wears a Seresto collar, which doubles up on the flea preventatives too, vet approved and recommended of course.

          To the lady who can't get her dog to eat it,a suggestion. Most dogs love peanut butter.I take the pill and use the handle of a heavy utensil such as a wisk or a small hammer to pulverize it.Then I put a glob of peanut butter on the particles and roll them into it.Dogs will eat that up in a hurry.Hope that helps.

          Comments about Elanco Trifexis for Dogs:

          This is a great product for flea and heart worm prevention however, I found that in the mountains where I live my dog still needed an additional tick collar. Although she is a service dog and is not outdoors much I would still find a few ticks on her from time to time without the addition of a tick collar .

          Also I have to use a pill pocket or hide the pill in a piece of turkey or something because she does not like the taste / smell and will fight taking it.
