Why would the pup get a pill of Trifexis at 8 weeks old and then not again until 12 weeks old? That does not make sense to me.
Even a pup will have to stay on heartworm preventative monthly.
My dogs are on Trifexis since Interceptor was off the market. They have done great on it, no problems.
I was at the vet's office yesterday with one of my seniors and I asked my vet about problems with Trifexis. He said, the only complaint was nausea and that should go away after a couple of months being on the meds.
Then I asked him about Interceptor coming back. He had gotten a small supply of Interceptor and he had one 12 pack for large dogs left. I told him, I take it, because it is cheaper than buying Trifexis right now and having had a really cold spell, right now I am not worried about fleas. Besides, once spring hits, I would rather have them on Interceptor plus Frontline Plus if I can. I don't want to overdo it with the flea protection, especially since I have never seen a flea on any of my dogs.
But, in general, the word still is "no idea" when Interceptor will be back in full supply.
Next month I will have to buy Trifexis again for my dachshund, since there were no small Interceptors available yesterday.
