Flea & Tick Meds may do this to your Dog!!!! (Nexgard)

Trifexis® (spinosad + milbemycin oxime) provides three types of parasite protection for your dog in just one tablet every month. With flea medicine, heartworm preventive and intestinal parasite control in one, get the peace of mind that comes from protecting your dog.

A Comparison: Flea & Tick Medicines

Heartworms are a parasitic worm that infests the organs of dogs and cats. Heartworms are easily contracted, detrimental to the wellbeing of your pet and potentially fatal. The Trifexis brand carries a lot of weight with the veterinary community for its broad-spectrum parasitic protection, which includes heartworms, hookworms, roundworms whipworms, and fleas. We love the added protection from fleas because flea treatments for dogs are often sold separate form heartworm treatments. Furthermore, side effects are rarely associated with Trifexis. Heartgard, on the other hand, does not include protection from fleas and is commonly associated with side effects, especially depression, lethargy, vomiting, and diarrhea. Therefore, we recommend Trifexis over Heartgard for dogs.

They all have their pros and cons. I know you likely read this newsletter because your pet has diabetes, but there is a good chance that your pet needs flea or heartworm prevention meds as well! I live and practice in South Florida, where we have the toughest fleas in America and heartworm disease is endemic. Here is my take on some of the most common flea and heart worm preventatives available:. I am a huge fan of Heartgard Plus.
