A monthly chewable tablet for dogs that provides three
types of parasite protection
Trifexis is a monthly chewable tablet that provides protection against three types of parasites for your dog. Trifexis:
- Kills fleas and prevents infestations
- Prevents heartworm disease
- Treats and controls adult hookworm, roundworm and whipworm infections
Trifexis is a beef flavored tablet that starts killing fleas in 30 minutes. With Trifexis, there is no need to isolate the dog from other pets or children. Pet owners can play with their dog immediately after treatment. Trifexis is approved for use in dogs and puppies 8 weeks of age or older and 5 pounds of body weight or greater.
Important safety information
Serious adverse reactions have been reported following concomitant extra-label use of ivermectin with spinosad alone, one of the components of Trifexis chewable tablets.
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 breeding females. The safe use of Trifexis in breeding males has not been evaluated. Use with caution in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy.
The most common adverse reactions reported were vomiting, depression/lethargy, itching, decreased appetite, and diarrhea. To ensure heartworm prevention, observe your dog for one hour after administration. If vomiting occurs within an hour of administration, redose with another full dose. Puppies less than 14 weeks of age may experience a higher rate of vomiting.
