Storage Instructions

Store in a dry place at controlled room temperature between 59° - 77°F.

SENTINEL SPECTRUM should be administered orally, once every month, at the minimum dosage. To ensure adequate absorption, always administer SENTINEL SPECTRUM to dogs immediately after or in conjunction with a normal meal. The chewables should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Care should be taken that the dog consumes the complete dose, and treated animals should be observed a few minutes after administration to ensure that no part of the dose is lost or rejected. If it is suspected that any of the dose has been lost, redosing is recommended.

Heartworm Prevention: SENTINEL SPECTRUM should be administered at monthly intervals beginning within 1 month of the dog’s first seasonal exposure to mosquitoes and continuing until at least 6 months after the dog’s last seasonal exposure. SENTINEL SPECTRUM may be administered year-round without interruption. When switching from another heartworm preventative product to SENTINEL SPECTRUM, the first dose of SENTINEL SPECTRUM should be given within a month of the last dose of the former product.

Flea Treatment and Prevention: Treatment with SENTINEL SPECTRUM may begin at any time of the year, preferably starting one month before fleas become active and continuing monthly through the end of flea season. In areas where fleas are common year-round, monthly treatment with SENTINEL SPECTRUM should continue the entire year without interruption. To minimize the likelihood of flea reinfestation, it is important to treat all animals within a household with an approved flea protection product, as necessary.

Intestinal Nematode and Cestode Treatment and Control: Dogs may be exposed to and can become infected with roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and tapeworms throughout the year, regardless of season or climate. Clients should be advised of appropriate measures to prevent reinfection of their dog with intestinal parasites. Because the prepatent period for E. multilocularis may be as short as 26 days, dogs treated at the labeled monthly intervals may become reinfected and shed eggs between treatments.

FAQ

How are Sentinel Spectrum and Sentinel Flavor Tabs different from other heartworm medications?

Not all heartworm medicines provide the same spectrum of parasite protection. Sentinel Flavor Tabs are chewable tablets that protect dogs against fleas, heartworms, roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms. Sentinel Spectrum is a soft, beef and bacon flavored chew that adds tapeworm protection to offer the broadest coverage available.

My dog weighs more than 100 pounds. Are Sentinel Specturm or Sentinel Flavor Tabs a good option for him?

Yes. Talk to your veterinarian about the appropriate dose for your pet.

My dog is a toy breed. Are Sentinel Specturm or Sentinel Flavor Tabs okay for his small size?

Yes. Both Sentinel Specturm and Sentinel Flavor Tabs offer a size that can be given to small dogs. Sentinel Spectrum has a size available for dogs weighing from 2–8 lbs and Sentinel Flavor Tabs has a size available for dogs weighing from 2–10 lbs.

I see a few fleas on my dog. Is the medication working?

You may see an occasional “hitchhiker” adult flea that your dog has picked up at the dog park or in the yard or other infested environments where 95% of the flea population lives in the form of eggs, maggot-like larvae, and pupae. Sentinel Specturm and Sentinel Flavor Tabs put an end to fleas before they become adults. You may need an adulticide, such as Effitix Topical Solution for Dogs, to treat occasional adult fleas.

Can I give either Sentinel Spectrum or Sentinel Flavor Tabs to my cat?

No, both Sentinel Spectrum and Sentinel Flavor Tabs are only approved for use in dogs.

    This is a product that can be more safe than others for dogs who have sensitivities to ingredients in other products. Shelties are one of those breeds that can have intolerance to typical ingredients in other products. It is also important to understand that (as the previous person stated) this is mainly for Heartworm which is why it needs a prescription, however it (conveniently) helps with prevention of other parasites, including IMMATURE fleas (not adults) by interrupting the life-cycle of the fleas.

  • Received correct medication, packaging bad

    By on

    I thoroughly enjoy using Chewy for the needs of our canines. First time I used them for heart worm medication. received the correct meds, but each box was "squished" and therefore each end was forced open. I opened each box (have 3 dogs) & had to count the meds to make sure they were all present. Came in a padded bag - perhaps a box is needed for protection?

  • Sentinel Heartworm Prevention

    By on

    I love this brand of heartworm medicine for my Shih tzu. My vet stopped selling it and had me try a new more expensive brand for my boy but he kept spitting it out. Thank you so much Chewy for carrying it. I order all my dog and bird supplies from you, you are the best.

  • Sentinel is great - some info for the one who did not think so

    By on

    This is a great product and I wanted to respond to the review that reflected a poor score indicating it does not work for fleas. I am sorry that person must have been lead astray and advised incorrectly to use this product for an active case of fleas. This product should not be used to kill fleas like a Nexguard or Simparica product does. You will notice on the box it says ALSO used to control flea population. The main purpose of Sentinel is heartworm prevention. It will not kill adult fleas; it prevents them from having babies and repopulating, so if you have fleas already you should not use this product to get rid of them. And, I hope a vet did not advise you to. You should use ones This is a great product and I wanted to respond to the review that reflected a poor score indicating it does not work for fleas.

Good luck but going back to Sentinel it is so great because it is small enough to place in a treat, unlike other alternative heartworm prevention. And, some of my dogs are even able to take it easily without a treat. Most importantly, it works with heartworm prevention! … more

  • Controls fleas etc

    By on

    It controls worms and fleas etc. I think this is the most complete medicine as far as controlling populations of unwanted parasites. But the flavored tab coating is not that appealing to my dog so I have to wrap the pill up in a piece of cheese or meat so he'll eat it.

  • Great Product and Great Service!

    By on

    I began using Sentinel this year for my poodle and chinese crested. Both take the pill easily and without fuss. The pills are small and easily hid in a treat. The Chewy.com RX service is second to NONE! Quick, easy, and they even contact for the prescription. All around a great experience.
