|My dog has been on Advantage Multi since I got her in July. My vet said that Heartgard isn't working in my area as some dogs are still getting heart worms.
I haven't had problems with Advantage Multi except that Stella freaks out when we put it on. I know it's a mental thing, but it's nearly impossible to get it all on her. Once it's over, she's fine. It's not hurting her, but she has a phobia of us putting it on for some reason. Perhaps this is tied to her fear of nail trims.
I want to avoid the whole issue by giving her a tasty edible preventive, and my vet's office recommended Trifexis over the phone. I didn't talk to the vet directly, so this is the receptionist talking.
I was going to go for the Trifexis but read some crazy reviews about it on amazon. Some people say it makes their dogs very ill, even kills some. However, when you go to the manufacturer's website, they make it seem harmless.
I did a search for Trifexis on this forum and didn't find any horror stories.
Any fans of Trifexis? Any other products I can use? Any way to overcome this fear of topical preventive?
I have to buy something next week, so I don't have too long to decide.
