[Dr. Jeff Werber:
Trifexis delivers three types of parasite protection in a flavored tablet given once a month. You can give it to your dog directly out of your hand or place it in her food bowl. Other dogs prefer that the tablet be placed inside of a treat.
How ever you choose to administer Trifexis, it’s important to ensure your dog ingests the entire tablet so she receives a full dose. Observe your dog for one hour after you give her Trifexis. If your dog vomits within an hour, give her another full dose. Administer Trifexis with a meal for maximum effectiveness.
It’s also important to administer Trifexis every month as directed by your veterinarian. This will help ensure that your dog receives continuous protection against fleas, heartworm disease and intestinal parasites. To help keep your dog on schedule with each treatment, sign up to receive monthly reminder emails or text messages at trifexis.com.
Ask about Trifexis, the combination product that kills fleas and prevents infestations, prevents heartworm disease, and treats and controls hookworm, roundworm and whipworm infections. See the full product label for complete safety information.
Serious adverse reactions have been reported following concomitant extra-label use of ivermectin with spinosad, one of the components of Trifexis. 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 dogs with pre-existing epilepsy.
The most common adverse reactions reported are vomiting, depression, itching and decreased appetite. To ensure heartworm prevention, observe your dog for one hour after administration. If vomiting occurs within an hour of administration, redose.]
