Trifexis FAQs - Top Heartworm & Flea Protection for Dogs

Pests like fleas and worms can lead to very serious health issues, and some pretty hefty vet bills, too. Prevent heartworm, fleas, and intestinal worms with Trifexis for dogs.

Dogs are our best friends, an unfortunately they're also attractive buddies for fleas, worms, and other parasitic creatures. Fleas will bite and causing itching on your pet's skin, and can also transmit tapeworm. Heartworms are internal parasites transmitted by mosquito bites that clog your dog's arteries and can cause heart failure. Hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm are all pretty gross too. Luckily, Trifexis is an easy monthly preventative medication that stops all of these pests.

Here we cover some frequent questions about Trifexis.

What is Trifexis?

Trifexis is a beef-flavored tablet that you give to your dog to eat once a month. It then gets to work. The primary ingredients in Trifexis are spinosad and milbemycin, which kill adult fleas by attacking their nervous system. You can compare Trifexis to other heartworm and flea and tick medications with our handy comparison chart.
