Trifexis for Dogs protects dogs from fleas, heartworms, hookworms, roundworms, and whipworms.
This chewable tablet features a scrumptious beef flavor that makes it easy to administer your pet’s monthly dose. By combining spinosad and milbemycin oxide, this treatment combats parasites for a full month and begins working within 30 minutes of administering the first dose.
Triflexis is a prescription medication that is safe for dogs that are at least 8 weeks of age. There are also five different formulations of Triflexis to give the proper dosage based on your dog’s weight. This pack includes 6 months worth of 140 mg doses for dogs that are between 5 and 10 pounds- but there are also dosages for dogs that weigh 11-20 pounds, 21-40 pounds, 41-60 pounds, and 61-120 pounds.
How it works: Spinosad, an active ingredient in Trifexis, starts to work within 30 minutes to kill fleas and has been proven to kill 100% of all biting fleas within 4 hours. Trifexis also kills flea eggs before they can mature, which helps to end the flea life cycle. Trifexis prevents heartworm disease by killing microfilariae and larvae from maturing into adult heartworms.
Dosage & Administration: Give Trifexis chewable tablets with food. Give Trifexis chewable tablets once a month. Trifexis chewable tablets may be chewed, offered in food, or administered like other tablet medications. If vomiting occurs within 1 hour of administration, redose the pet with another full dose. Store Trifexis at room temperature (68-77° F). Consult your veterinarian for pregnant or lactating dogs.
