This product is amazing! I highly recommend it because it works very well, but since it is a pill (which sucks but there is a way around it!), it was hard to give to my little dude until I thought to myself, why not crumble the pill and mash it up and give it to him?. That is exactly what I did, before taking the actual pill out of the silver packaging, I literally ever so slightly try to smash the pill in the packaging, once I think it is powdery, I then open the packaging from the little corner and voila! You have a powdery pill. What do you do from there on you may think? Either put the powdery pill in a treat (pill pocket, or some cheese) or put it into the food, one way or another your pup will consume the pill in a non pill form, this has been working pretty decently for me for a while! Hope this helps some folks who have been having trouble with this stuff! It costs a pretty penny but works amazingly!
"Trifexis works great, but our dogs hate it!" Is pretty much the theme in Trifexis reviews. I am here to offer a solution I discovered: Wrap Trifexis in raw ground beef and dogs will love medicine time. This is based on experience, check my resume below. Every month for years, I hated when my calendar alerted me to give our dogs their Trifexis. I found myself staring in the fridge for a tasty left over, a fine aged cheese, crappy cheese, cheese-food-product, hot dogs, sausage, bacon, dog treats and fish sauce, ground it into dust using a mortar and pestle and mixed with peanut butter... literally nothing could mask their Trifexis. Ultimately, after the air would fill with words I can't have our son repeat and yelling about why such an expensive dog pill was clearly not made by dog people for dogs my wife would offer up her services. Her finger would take the now gooey pill stuck to her finger like a booger and cram it down their throats. Not cool and the dogs weren't having fun either. The vet had no suggestions beyond what had already been tried. One day the calendar notification dinged on my phone and the dreaded word "Trifexis" appeared. I grabbed the dogs boxes of Trifexis cut the pills in quarters as usual (knowing that they really detect the whole pill) and opened the fridge in search of a masking agent. Then, something unusual happened, as if the heavens opened up, a beam of fridge light shined down from above onto some ground beef waiting for me to transform it into chili and beans that night. I grabbed a chunk of it and made Trifexis stuffed meatballs out of each piece of pill! The dogs gobbled up their medicine and wanted more! I received my first Michelin Star and now, finally, I live a more stress-free life. My potty mouth has turned into laughter and praise. The dogs running and hiding behind the sofa has turned into salivating and tail wagging. And we all live happily ever after. We love Trifexis calendar notifications now!
I am very happy with the smooth transaction between Chewy and my vet. I prefer this product to the ones my vet Keeps in stock.
I think Trifexis works really well, and I was very happy to be giving my dog an organic product like spinosad. However.... my dog HATES the pills. They seem to be the only thing on the planet this dog will not happily wolf down. No tricks worked--he left it in his food bowl, ate the treat around it and spit out the pill, etc. I tried crushing but it's pretty hard to crush. Even shoving it all the way to the back of his throat didn't work. I ended up having to DISSOLVE it in some green bean juice and pour it on his food. I wouldn't mind that, but I can't find any info anywhere about whether dissolving it decreases its effectiveness. So... we used up his prescription and switched to another brand. I'd still prefer to use Trifexis if I could.
My dog would not eat this pill no matter if I used peanut butter, cheese whiz, wrapped inside meat, pill pockets and mixed with wet food. I would force the pill down his throat. He didn't like that and neither did I. So I was forced to change to Heartgard and NexGard. It might be a good item but if your dog won't take it, then its a waste of money.
Easy to give your dog and seems to work great. Easy to order also.
I am so happy this is working for our 6 month old beagle. This does it all! I really don’t like the oil based coverage and have heard some negative comments on the seresto for very young small dogs. Have used them for years on my big dogs, no problem.
My 40lb mutt has had great results, and I can't complain on its intent. I agree with some others on smell, as it is a chalky type aromatic when you crunch it up. Speaking of crunching, my dog will not eat this standalone. I use a small bit of wet food and no issue. Little pricey, but I'm content on execution, and delighted with results. Buying from Chewy will definitely save you money as well compared to vet costs.
Everything went great and right on time!! Everyone was cooperative and nice
I had the hardest time getting my dogs to swallow these pills. They hated them! The pills worked okay, but I would never buy again because they were not worth the headache.
