Eli Lilly has hit another grand slam with the new heartworm and flea combination chewable tablet - Trifexis. This product has been on the market for about two years. Although it has no efficacy against ticks, we feel that it is the best product "out there" for the control and killing of fleas, as well as prevention of Heartworm disease, and Roundworms, Hookworms, and Whipworms. Trifexis is a chewable tablet given once monthly, with a meal for best absorption and effectiveness. You may purchase a 6-month supply or buy a single dose at a time.
The advantage of oral heartworm and flea products is there is no mess on your pet's shoulders. Bathing your pet while using the topical flea products (Advantage, Frontline) can be confusing. Using oral Trifexis, you may bathe your pet any time you wish. There are no restrictions.
