Trifexis

My Hans threw up his dinner after I gave him his Trifexis.
Is there a better med I can put him on. Those pills smell horrible.

Thanks Al

That's a fairly common complaint with Trifexis. Did you dose him with his feeding? If not, you might try it. If you did, you might try giving him the Trifexis as a treat between meals. That is what we do with our boys.

Those pills are expensive, it would be a shame to have to toss them. Also... Keep in mind that Hans is not protected at this point.

We have used Trifexis for years, and for our purposes, it has worked well. It depends on what one is trying to protect against. Unfortunately, some dogs simply do not tolerate it.

I gave it half way through his meal
30 min. Later he threw up his meal. No trace of the pill.

My Hoss previously used this product.
Each time would throw up so I changed products.
But regarding Trifexis she did advise if Hoss maintained it in his stomach 1 hour (maybe it was two hours) the dose would have time to absorb.
Either way I did not like the vomiting so I changed product.
These deep chested dogs and throwing up ...ugg.....I work to avoid that situation as much as possible.
Oh if interested we switched to NexGard.

While I really like the active ingredient in Trifexis for heartworm, milbemycin--it's the flea treatment med and I don't think I have any around at the moment that causes dogs to vomit up the pill.

I use and prefer using Interceptorr Plus--I was greatly dismayed when the manufacturer took the original Intercepter which contained only milbemycin and treated only for prevention of heartworm off the market.. When they brought it back as Interceptor it contained milbemicin for heartworm, a specific med (for prevention of tape worm (a couple of different types and a flea med not the same one that Trifexis contrains.

Seems to me it's also rather less expensive than the Trifexis.

You might want to try that one. I fed that one by just dropping it on the dogs breakfast or dinner. Had absolutely no problems with it. For good flea control I still prefer the apply to the skin types. I've used Advantage on cats since it first appeared on the market and then used it on the dogs as well. It's now Advantage !! but it's another one I never had problems with--and although I haven't ever lived in places where heartworm was a huge problem I've lived in some of the flea capitols of the western world.

Seattle and Portland both fall into that category--not enough really cold weather in the winter of either city to do a complete mosquito kill and I live in an area of Portland where there are two (and maybe still three) puppy mills who routinely bring in breeding stock from the southeast--and almost all of them come in complete with heartworm and the mosquitos then carry it around.

And I lived in Sacramento and Los Angeles near the beach--the things on LA's beaches called sand fleas are in reality cat fleas and they live very well on the dogs that people bring (illegally) to the beaches and then migrate inland.

Good luck--there are enough good flea, wormers and heart worm products today that you can with the help of your vet find the right one that your cat or dog tolerates.

I live in Florida and it's hot as hell. My Hans is 11.5 months old healthy as a horse, but his appetite has fallen way off. Is this normal?

He has been eating maybe 2.5 cups out of 5

I've tried Comfortis (which is just the spinosad) for my cats, and ugh! they positively reek of "chemical smell". It's enough to make me want to throw up.

I prefer to use Tri-Heart Plus (generic Heartgard Plus) for heartwoms and intestinal worms, and then use Nexgard for fleas as needed.

You really need to check with your vet before dosing him with a different medication.

I would also say, no, not normal to lose appetite. Call your veterinarian.
