Generally, all pet owners know to have some sort of flea control for their pet. This is very smart and you should definitely talk to one of our vets to find which form of flea control is best for your dog. Trifexis® lasts a full month and kills fleas before they even have a chance to lay eggs. It actually starts working within 30 minutes to kill those fleas! It is also used as a preventative and does prevent future flea infestations.
These can be very deadly and can create for your dog what is known as “Heartworm Disease.” Treatment for this disease is very difficult and costly. It is urged greatly to have your pet on a heartworm preventative because it IS ENTIRELY PREVENTABLE!
Your dog can contract these parasites from essentially anywhere. Trifexis® does protect your dog against hookworms, roundworms and whipworms. To take it one step further in regards to prevention, it is recommended that you not allow your dogs to roam, that you pick up feces in the yard at least weekly and immediately in public places (parks, etc.). These worms create great discomfort for your pet such as diarrhea, inflammation and can even cause death if left untreated.
We want your dog to live a long and healthy, happy life! Please come see us to find out if this brand of preventative is right for your dog!
