my smaller dog (let's call him a maltepoo) has thrown up each of the first two times we have given it to him. he is 15 lbs and we have given him the pill for 10 lbs to 20lbs. expensive trial gone wrong.
my larger dog (let's call him a husky shepherd) acted a bit sluggish after the first (and only) time we have given it to him but he did not get sick. he is 55 lbs and we gave him the pill for 40 lbs to 60 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidSouth Easy and effective for dual protection
Trifexis is a once a month chewable tablet that protects your pet against heartworm and fleas. It's so easy to administer and the dog much prefers a treat than having to endure the application of topical flea prevention!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tsuba Great Product!
I used to use Sentinel (until it was recalled) and was always happy with everything it did, EXCEPT the fact that it didn't kill fleas (it only sterilized them.) So even though this was a pretty expensive change, its well worth it to only have to give my dogs ONE pill to cover all bases.
My only issues are 1. The pills are BIG. I usually have to cut them in half because my 65lb dogs can't/won't swallow them whole. 2. They're not offered in a 12 month supply, so I have to purchase a pack every 3 months because I have 2 dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eva7 Great response from product but...
My concern is my dog is not quite at 22lbs and will be dropping 2-4 lbs. Currently dosage for her goes up to 40lbs. I'm not comfortable giving her meds for almost twice her weight and vet won't drop dosage to 20lbs dosage. For that reason ONLY I've stopped Trifexis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick Dogs Hate These
My dogs hate these! I have a 100lb dog who has to take a very large pill & it is very hard getting it down her. My smaller dog doesn't like them either, but I can wrap pill in a piece of meat and get it down her, since her pill is small. My friends with dogs have the same problem. They need to do something to make these more palatable to dogs.
I assume the are effective since I see no sign of fleas and hope never have a heart worm problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Timbiotic It works
One stop shopping for dogs & their owners. One pill for multiple uses than giving dogs three different pills.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jjboca All in one heart guard and pest control medicine
Great product for the one and done folks. Pill itself is a little large and must be broken up (and mixed with treats) for our pet to take.

I will definitely continue to use Trifexis for my two dogs. I have been using it for a couple of years now and I have had zero problems with fleas and/or ticks. Usually, I smash the pill up inside a plastic bag with a rolling pin and then empty the pill into some wet dog food. My dogs eat it up like they normally would eat a treat like that. My dogs are very healthy and happy! It is a little pricey, but I think it is worth it!! It definitely beats having to worry about fleas on your dog, on you, and all over your house!

by TMarie I think is too expensive. Most folks can't afford this for their pets & that's too bad because Our pet has not had worms,fleas,or ticks & that's grea
It works great.Max has not tested positive for worms while on this medication. He has not had a flea or a tick on him
While he has been on it either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Neya Not worth the money
I have a 13Lb 3yr old pug. She is normally happy and energetic. I normally give her the plus version of a leading brand of topical flea treatment that protects against everything but heartworms. I thought to switch to this product so I would not have to administer an additional heartworm pill and I thought I was doing her a favor by not applying chemicals to her skin. I split the pill into quarters and mixed it with chicken. I could tell by the look in her face that she disliked it very much. She has been much less energetic since I gave her the pill five days ago. She is itchy and seems to pay more attention than ever to her genital area. So, now I don't have to give her a separate heart pill, but I have to worry about ticks, flea pupae, itching, lethargy, "licking of the genitals" and the guilt of giving her a large and distasteful pill. For the money, I expect better. I figure I can go back to the topical treatment and at least she is protected against ALL stages of fleas AND ticks, plus she does not mind the taste of the heart pill.

I LOVED this product only reason I stopped using it was cause it was NOT tested on breeding males which my dog is. But for the time I was using this product it did wonders for getting rid of the fleas kept the ticks down (we hike a lot).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bryan99 GOOD ALL IN ONE
This is a good all in one flee plus heart guard. It did well for one of my dogs, but no so much the other one. Not sure why. My dog does not like the taste, so I have to put in food before he will take it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jh49 Works for both of my dogs
Both of my dogs have been using Trifexis since we got them and we have never had a single flea. This is even more amazing because we live in the country and have all kinds of wildlife going through our yard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by apasipes Trifexis has worked for us
The only problem we have had with this product is that my one picky dog will not eat it willingly. But we coat it in peanut butter and then all is well. My dogs have both been taking Trifexis for many months and it appears to be effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blade Trifixes really works.
I was giving my 4 month old Multees the topic medication that you put in the back of the neck. I thought she was safe from tick and fleas. Boy was I wrong. One day after shower her, I saw lot of fleas on her and panicked as Im sure most of you will. Trifexes was recommended through a friend of mine who had a dog and recommended me to use it. After much research, I asked my vet if its ok to use it. Make the long story short, after first application it worked wonders. No more fleas, ticks or nothing. My dog is healthy and I believe this product really works. One pill a month orally and thats it. You dont have to worry about any ticks or nothing. Man Im so glad I found Trifexes Its a little expensive, but hey I dont care, as long as my puppy is healthy, thats all i care about.

I love this product for my puppy. I hated to put something on her skin. I always felt that was harsh. I have never seen anything on her. It even killed the one tick that was one her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maria65 3 birds, 1 stone
I like that I don't have to worry about separate meds for heartworm and fleas. It's expensive, but evens out when you combine other med costs. My dog's only gotten sick from it once, and I think it was because I gave it to her too late after she finished eating for the night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kayters27 Good for small dogs
My dog is under 5 pounds. With some of the flea medications, you need to be careful because they are "for under 20 pounds" and even so, some are too much for such a little dog. This medication is fine for her. It does make her a little lethargic but only for about 1 day. As far as I know, it works. I haven't had any flea issues. I think it's expensive but they all are these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grramaz Works well
I wish it were more palatable to our dog. She hates the taste. WILL NOT eat it, not even swallow it in small pieces. I have to pulverize it. She is usually a pretty good pill taker. (has to take 4 pills per day' just toss them onto the back of her tongue, and rub her throat and offer her a treat. However, nothing works with the Trifexis! PLEASE tell the company to make it more "dose easy"!

Rated 4 out of 5 by kodiakbear Trifexis works well
from Florida it is a definite asset other than the cost & the dogs HATE it , they take heartguard like a cookie, for the cost you have to become quite creative. not only my dogs my sister in law turned me on to trifexis & has the same trouble To get them to eat it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pldiot Highly recommended.
If it was in a chewy tab, my dogs would like it better, but I love the ease and the effectiveness of this product, I JUST CRUSH THE TABLETS IN THE PACKAGE, OPEN IT UP POUR OVER DRY FOOD AND THEN ADD A LITTLE WET FOOD TO MIX IT IN AND THEY EAT IT UP. I hated the flea products that you administer to there skin as I have a black lab with long thick hair and a vizla and they love water and never felt the products were as effective.

I live in a rural area and my dogs were constantly infested with fleas, despite using various flea products. Since I started Trifexus over a year ago, I have not seen 1 flea on either of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bethany1332 Love it!
I live out in the country, and both my dogs were fighting fleas and ticks even with 3-4 week spot treatments and they both had hookworm. The first time I used Trifexis, they were both nauseated with the first dose and didn't digest the entire tablet, but I still noticed a reduction in fleas and stomach problems. They weren't as nauseated with the second dose. We are at two full months now, and I haven't seen a flea or tick in at least 4-6 weeks, and it doesn't even say anything about tick preventative. They are also both free of hookworms, and their skin is getting clearer from where they had been scratching. I love that this gives heartworm, flea, and intestinal worm treatments all in one product, and the cost is great compared to buying two or three different products. My vet recommended this to me because he uses it for his dog, and I would definitely recommend it to other people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Heidi2 I have a minature schnauzer 16 lbs, have been giving it to her for about 2 years. The price continues to go up each time I buy a 6 month supply.
Besides the price going up each time I buy, it makes her very itchy, so then I have to give her another pill to try to combat the itching (Temeril P), which makes it more expensive

Rated 4 out of 5 by Butter Not one flea but....
We have a mini dachshund. I added up the cost and this product was cheaper than having to buy all monthly products (heartgaurd, wormer, etc..) by around $5-$10. I don't have any problem with her taking it. It is a hard pill and with other products I have been known to roll cheese around it. However, the only issue thus far has been the itching. I thought at first she had fleas, then just dry skin but after reading up this product has a side affect of itching. She also got tapeworms so I'm assuming it doesn't protect against them. She mainly an indoor dog but on pretty days she spends a good dosage of outside time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 71fish Expensive but Effective
This product is Effective. I have not seen a flea on my dog and we live in Florida. We will see when summer hits if it is truly repellent of fleas. I gave low ease of use because it is not chewable. I have to fight with her every month to take it. She smells it and cowers down. I cannot put it in cheese or meat because she won't eat it. I did however discover smothering it with peanut butter and then cheese works the best. It still requires a fight. Also, this is a very expensive pill and you cannot afford any monthly mistakes. I wish it was a little cheaper. It is definitely making me look for an alternative.
