We started Bear on Trifexis. The vet gave us a sample for Bears weight class to see how he does. Bear took the pill, no fuss, no muss, w/o food (ie wrapped in cheese/hot dog/PB) but shortly after lunch. No vomiting.

I'm leery of topical flea applications b/c I'm seeing a larger percentage of the dogs I know, having severe allergic reactions to the chemicals from the topicals but not to an oral treatment. I like it. I give it once a month and I don't have to worry about not touching the puppy for fear of messing up the topical treatment. I used to give my cats advantage - but haven't for the past 6-7 years as they no longer venture outside and the risk of me bringing home fleas is minimal.

I have Fannin on Trifexis and couldn't be more pleased. He has been on it since I got him as the vet highly recommended it. He has never thrown up, though I always give it to him after breakfast so the food may help.

I love Trifexis. I use it on Yukon. The pill is so much easier and cleaner than to topical stuff. Plus it does internal parasites, ticks, fleas, heartworms all in one. I like it.

We used Sentinel last year, but after an awful 6 month stint with Demodex Mange, looked to change it up this year, our vet who has Goldens, used Trifexis, so we took his suggestion and used it this year! We just popped the pill in his food, and it was gone....!

I started my dogs on Trifexis, since Interceptor is off the market. No problems so far.
Ticks are not around right now, so I don't have to use Frontline Plus during fall and winter.

Trifexis or Comfortis is actually what most veterinary dermatologists recommend for flea allergic dogs.

I have Chester on comfortis I love it at first he did throw up ONLY because the vet gave it to him on a empty stomach and then we went straight in the car and he gets car sick sometimes so that was no help. Vet gave me another pill and I gave it to Chester with food and he was fine. I plan on changing him to trifexis just because it includes the heartworm in just one pill. You don't have to deal with buying anything separate unless you have ticks in your area and over here in the city we don't.

Rain and my Chihuahua are both on Trifexis, I didn't want to use a topical treatment on Rain since during the summer she swam a lot. Trifexis works fine for them though, no issues at all
