|First let me lament Interceptor's irresponsibility one more time, as I grow more and more frustrated with this situation each day.
These Trifexis pills are MASSIVE, even for the GSDs, and its hard to really "hide" them in anything... they're larger than a quarter and almost half an inch thick and smell like a lawn pesticide... do dogs honestly eat them willingly?
I have to chop Mulder's in half and mix it in with his raw just to get him to eat it.
I was able to mix in Ridley's the first couple of times, but tonight he was wise to me and ate around them. Put it in cheese, he spat it out. Eventually it came down to me having to FORCE it down his throat.
Now my concern is if he actually got enough of it to be effective. Some of it had dissolved in the food of course, surely some in the cheese as well, and I think a good deal of it got left behind on me as I slid around on the floor trying to jam this bleepin-bleep-bleep horse pill down his throat.
Should I be worried he didn't get enough of it? Its supposed to be for UP TO a 120lb dog, Ridley is closer to 70. Even if he only got half the pill, do you think he would still be covered? For the record, I don't care about the flea thing. I'm using something else for that, I'm just worried about heartworm.
