There are a lot of flea/heartworm products out there. We wanted to let you all know about Trifexis.
Trifexis kills fleas and prevents flea infestations. It also prevents heartworm disease as well as treating different kinds of worms (roundworms, hookworms and whipworms). Trifexis can kill fleas before they even lay eggs. If there is already an infestation, the fleas will be killed in a couple of days. This is a 3 in 1 medication that protects against fleas, heartworms and intestinal parasites.
You can start Trifexis on a puppy as young as 8 weeks and at least 5 pounds of weight. It is a flavored tablet so it can be given to your dog as a treat.
The most common side effects in using this drug (as there are possible side effects for any drug used) are vomiting, slowness, lack of appetite and tiredness.
You must get approval from one of our vets to use this medication. It is very important that you do this as your pup could be allergic to something in the medication. Additionally, it should not be used if your dog already has been diagnosed with heartworms.
Now, if you are interested in this type of prevention, you can get $50 off a year’s supply at our office right now. Please don’t hesitate to ask us or check it out. It’s a great product and does work.
Here is a video regarding it from the Trifexis website (it’s in the top right corner after you click): Click here
We want your dog to live a happy and healthy life. He or she will need to be on some form of prevention of different parasites out there. Please take note of this one.
