    • My Dogs Didn't Like Taste

    Best Uses

    • Monthly Flea Treatment

    My 3 dogs didn't like the taste or smell of the tablet. I used meat to mask the taste/smell. I did have to break the tablet as they are a little big for our Cockers.
    This is their first treatment, they did seem to itch a lot but I assume that was the med working.
    The itching has subsided, will continue using Trifexis.

        My big dog has been on Trifexis for several years and he has never had any side effects from it. It is a bit expensive from my vet and I am going to start ordering it online.
        The only negative thing I can say about this medication is, my dog hates the taste and won't chew it. My dog eats dry dog food but every month I have to give him wet dog food with the Trifexis tablet crushed up and mixed in it. This is the only way he will eat it.
        It would be nice if this medication would come in a capsule so I could just have my dog swallow it.
