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.

    Sentinel Heart Worm Tabs

    By on

    Not sure how much of a review I can give since I do not take these tabs. Maybe I should ask Armani for his input here. All I know is he gets one every month and when he does he doesn't even chew it. Just swallows. They appear to work since the vet hasn't said he has heart worm. I do wish we could get 12 at a time but I suppose there is a shelf-life limitation.

    Given with food

    Roxy enjoys the Sentinel tab when given with food. She will not eat the tablet alone, but if we place the tablet in the bowl with breakfast or dinner the medication disappears. Chewy continues to amaze us. Within 24-hours they were able to contact our Vet, fill the prescription, and ship the medication. Two-days later the medication was delivered, Thank you. Daniel

    Bugs be gone

    My poodle reacted to a heartworm med I’d been giving all my dogs. So I tried Sentinel for almost a year & he likes the pill w/o pushing it on him. No reaction so I consider it a good med.

    Great product for my dogs!

    By on

    My dogs have been using Sentinel for years & they love the taste of the pill without having to hide it in anything. Purchasing this from Chewy is much cheaper than purchasing from my local veterinarian. I will be purchasing this product again from Chewy.com.

    Yes for Worms, No for Fleas

    By on

    This product is great for worm prevention. However, you shouldn’t use it for flea prevention. We thought it would do both but our pup got fleas and we were informed by our vet that Sentinel doesn’t kill fleas. It renders them infertile which help control fleas but it doesn’t actually kill them. We are now treating our house and yard for fleas and we’ve added Nexgard to our dog’s regimen.

    I have used this product for years and now I needed a different dose. Decided Chewy would be my best chance of getting the product. I order dog food, treats, supplies, why not hewrtworm meds.

    Works great

    By on

    All three of my Cavaliers have been on Sentinel since they've been with me (two from birth). We have never had a problem with fleas. Their fecal exams are always negative for parasites. Heartworm exams always negative. One of my pups is sensitive to some flea and tick products (serresto collar causes cough) No reaction to Sentinel. Very pleased. Cost manageable
