This treatment worked well until our baby began to crawl and wanted to touch the dog. The residue left behind from the monthly topical flea treatment is poison and I did not want our baby touching it. We spoke to our vet and she recommended this new product called Trifexis. Basically, it is a monthly chewable tablet which prevents heartworm, kills fleas and treats/controls intestinal worms, including roundworm. So far our Pekingese has had no adverse reactions from it and I feel confident knowing that the baby wont come in contact with the poison, or contract roundworm!!
The rx must be picked up from your vet and a blood test to check for heartworm is usually done before beginning treatment, as this does not TREAT heartworm, only prevents.
If you have a small child, baby, children or you yourself don’t want to come in contact with the poisoinous residue left behind on your dogs coat after applying a traditional topical flea treatment, I highly recommend Trifexis!
