Trifexis is a new prevention product for dogs that protects them from heartworm disease, internal parasites (roundworms/hookworms/whipworms), and fleas. It is a once a month oral medication that dogs generally take willingly. It is winning many green awards for being environmentally friendly.
So why isn't the Delmar Animal Hospital using it?
Trifexis has no tick prevention or repellant properties. In upstate New York ticks are still a major worry and vector of disease. Currently we recommend using heartworm prevention with internal parasite control (like Heartgard) AND a flea and tick topical (like Vectra or Frontline).
So, for our snowbird clients, use the Trifexis your Florida veterinarian may be suggesting while in Florida. But we suggest using Vectra or Frontline with Heartgard while you are back in upstate New York!
Flea and tick protection has just gotten easier!
Nexgard, a once a month chewable treat, is available for dogs.
Canine Flu is again in the news with a recent article in the New York Times and recent approval of a second Canine Flu vaccine against the Asian version of the virus.
