Oh wow -- I was actually thinking of talking to our vet about this product. New does bother me ... I think I'll stick to what I'm using now.

New bothers me too!

There are a lot of dogs out there doing fine on this, but there are enough that are getting sick, some dying, that I'm really glad that someone is looking into the scope of the problem.

I've post this on some of the forums I belong to:

...
Please spread the word to those that might have experienced issues with this drug. I have been following the FB group "Trifexis Kills DOGS", where, on a fairly regular basis, dogs are having bad reactions to this med, including some fatal reactions. It is unknown the extent of this problem. However, a lawyer is trying to gather stories, to see if there is cause to take action. Here is the webpage:

Thanks,

Kayos has a hard time tolerating Ivermectin. I never had her tested for MDR1 but I bet she may hvae it. I have always used other stuff on her. She is the only dog on Trifexis right now and has not had a problem with it.

Due to furlough and money, I have gone to liquid Ivermectin for Havoc and Mayhem.

I certainly will be more watchful with this med now but will still use it.

It's always possible that the med is interacting with, say, another tick/flea product, or some genetic susceptibility, who knows shrug It seems like reactions occur in the first several times it has been used, but I haven't read all of the reports.

This is why I don't use pesticides on my dogs. Very sad, for the people who trusted their vets and the drug companies. Not to mention bee colony collapse, the decline of songbirds and now this bat fungus (yes, I'm convinced that pesticides are no good). mad

People avoiding Trifexis should also avoid ComboGuard ( Combo Guard ):
