Who wants a drug that only works 95 percent of the time against heartworms? Rumor has it they have barely sold 100k of the junk! They should be out of business before mid year!

I work for Novartis and am battling with this just as you are, but that is the dumbest thing I have heard. Why are we even giving them the extra attention, it just creates more product awareness for them. They have a good product that still has to prove its worth, so don't help it by giving them talking points. We all "play the game" so we all know that whatever we start saying unless its 100% factual it can and will be turned back on us.

Yes, their study came back 95% on the MP3 isolate, but have you looked at the Bayer study that is being passe daorund like candy...ours and Merials came back at 95% as well against that same isolate.

I don't care what you all do or say in your territories thats your business, these are just things that I have already seen come around in the past month. I beleive it is goign to be difficult to negative sell their product, but we already have the relationships and proven value that is what I am using as my positioning.

I agree...I control leverage with my relationships....but! Elanco has hired a lot of Bayer folk, who have almost as good of a name as we do.

I heard Trifexis is now delayed. Word is it is coming out 3Q. What a joke. This product will flop like Comfortis has. I am in the Southeast and Comfortis is being returned everyday!

All you poor Novartis and Merial reps, talking sh!t about something you have no clue about, I own 6 veterinary clinics all of which we carry Comfortis and now Trifexis, we have had Trifexis for about a week know and have sold a total of 364 boxes. We have also sold 61 boxes of Heartgard and 23 boxes of Interceptor, again poor poor Merial and Novartis.

Great news- now you have about 182 dogs that won't take it and about 65 dogs that will vomit it up. Congrats on the medicine you recommended.

They want take other meds proscribed either hint cephalexin.
So are we not to give that as well? I even sell against this and wish I had it to sell.
It is a great product that works. Frontline when it first came out was sold with gloves
anyone remember that?

Sure gloves. But why now use a product that isn't as good and could cause these issues? You have a choice and could use something that is proven in studies. Even dr Dryden doesn't respect this product and he will sell anything!

Hope this helps any investors looking for a non bias info on this. I don't work for a vet, but both my vets down here say the same, my Maine vet hasn't heard of it, but fleas aren't as bad there. I can't imagine that the topical applications will last much longer once other areas of the country realize how much easier and less messy this is.
Comfortis is a an adulticide alone for killing fleas. It targets only 5% of the lifecycle. 1 in 16 dogs vomits on it. Now you just partnered your HW preventative with a product that ignores 95% of the flea lifecycle at the RISK of your dog throwing it up. Who watches their dog for an hour after they give them their HW preventative? That's even if you can get them to take it. Trifexis is the size of a quater and has the thickness of 5 quarters put together. Odds are, you'll have to shove it down the dogs throat. Trifexis cost more than Sentinel to boot. Adulticides alone for killing any insect are at a higher risk for resistence. Spinosad has been banned from Georgia, California, and Hawaii in agriculture for resistence. Many other southern states only allow one rotation of spinosad in agriculture. Too many problems with Trifexis. Clinics will be sorry that they bought this product and will have problems selling it long term.

Dr. Dryden, just signed up w/ELANCO to be a KOL speaker for them, but I agree he and Dr. Blagburn (also an ELANCO KOL speaker) do speak for any and everyone. I say this bc Dryden is doing an event for ELANCO in my area. Just an FYI..., but I think all milby products suck

In time, it will be interesting to see if the incidence of HW disease grows proportionally to an increase in Trifexis marketshare. Not because of resistance, but because of the "vomit-factor" and client compliance (we all know clients stop administering flea products when they stop seeing fleas...why will this be any different?)

I have used Comfortis since it came out. I have 6 dogs ranging in size from 30-110 pounds. We have alot of land that consists of woods and open fields and for the past couple of years have battled a bad flea problem. I have tried everything! Once I started using Comfortis I haven't seen one flea on the dogs since the first month I used this product. I have recomended it to everyone I know of that has a problem with fleas and no one has had a problem with the dogs not taken comfortis or vomiting it back up, nor have I had a problem with my dogs. I have yet to try the Trifexis, but I believe that Comfortis is a great product.

FYI: Spinosad has been banned in agriculture use in CA, GA, and HI. Other states only allow minimal use. Why? Because using only one way of killing insects ALWAYS leads to resistence. Why would fleas be any different? You may be seeing great results in Comfortis in year 1 of the product. Long term usage will likely lead to resistence. Just like Advantage and Frontline. Ask any veterinarian. That's why using lufenuron along with an adulticide is the best option. Comfortis might be good now, but you'll have a problem shortly. When it happens, remember you read it here. Comfortis/Trifexis were invented b/c the average person is a moron. It caters to the average moron. Any DVM worth his/her salt knows that you need a broad spectrum to consistently maintain kill year after year. Comfortis / Trifexis doesn't offer that. Not to mention, it offers too many obstacles: can't use in pups 14 weeks and under / can't use in breeding males & pregnant females / must be taken with wet food / can't use in dogs with pre-existing epilepsy / high rate of vomiting issue / high cost / etc..... Vets who sell this stuff are just dumb or lazy. People who buy it are even dumber.

We have been selling at our clinics (more info at http://happypet.com/Trifexis-Flea-an...tion-56-4.html) for nearly two weeks now and been extremely happy with it. We sell a fair amount right now and haven't had any complaints. However we do still sell considerably more Sentinel.

As far as reps go I love my Novartis reps, but our Elanco reps are also great. Both companies have provided us with a top notch service for years.

That's B.S., is it on Internet...sure it is, but track & trace only works when it happens. It's pretty hard to catch people if they don't do wrong. Also, ELANCO has already cut off more clinics whom have diverted Trifexis than any other company has cut off in their entire existence. Lastly, product that is out there is much more expensive than the vets are charging b/c they can't buy it direct and ELANCO doesn't make provide them the opportunity to get product at discounts (no free product or rebate deals). How much are they selling Novartis product for online.....cheaper than most clinics can afford to sell it for, why is that?

Fleas will never be immune to Advantage. The chemical which is Advantage is far too complex for fleas to become immune to. The chemical(s) that are Frontline (plus) are too simple in structure. This is why it is almost ineffective against fleas and ticks. If anyone has a problem with fleas and not ticks, use Advantage. You will be amazed and grateful for this product.

So, I am a huge fan of comfortis! I think it is a great adulticide, but lacks the IGR for total flea control. As for Trifexis… I will never give my boxer this product, not because of the spinosad , but because for the milbemycin for heartworm prevention. I have seen too many pets with heartworm disease that have been on Interceptor. Even if your pet holds the Trifexis down it might still not work. Sorry Tirfexis… No Go Here

I work at a vet clinic it south Texas and comfortis is a top seller and we have not had ANY returns, now that is not said about trifexis within the last week I have had customers that were not satisfied and wanted their money back. Problem may be making this "super pill" that is convenient not only for us but for our pets is really hurting us in the end. I say go back to the old way buying separate flea medicine and HW medicine.

I have been using Trifexis on my dogs for the last 5 months and they still have fleas and ticks. within 2 weeks of giving it to them. I am going back to frontline and other heart worm medications. If it won't kill the fleas as promised, then it is certainly going to do nothing for the deadly heartworms!

okay guys, the more you talk down this product the more appealing it becomes. Any body with a half ounce of intelligence can figure out these remarks are fiction and made by competitors. When this is done it makes one think that there must be something to these products or there would not be as much time taken to put it down.

It's time you reps. focus on your products and telling the truth about your products and let the veterinarians do the rest.

All of your products work! That said, Comfortis does work better than any other product available today. Trifexis with the milbemycin is icing on the cake! Thank you all for supporting our industry, and don't feel bad if your on the wrong team today. Who knows, perhaps next year your firm will be back on top with something new and better! No offense. Really! Sincerely- a DACVD.

Thanks for catching my typo chief . . . I suppose that I found my first whiner! LOL!

Like I mentioned previously . . . good luck next year/product. If it's better than the current king at our referral practice, Comfortis, we will surely give it the attention it may deserve.

P.S.- fleas survive for 90 days without an adulticide! IGR-only products are antiquated. Products which require the addition of an IGR are not what we would call adequately efficacious. If the facts hurt your feelings . . . too bad, so sad. Try to grow up.

Thanks for the flea biology lesson. So, do you think Trifexis is 100% efficacious? It must be if you don't need an IDI. By the way, I hope you know Lufenuron is not an IGR. Also, in case you don't know, Lufenuron is the IDI in Sentinel. Did you do your residency at on line?

New poster here...
When dealing with an IGR or IDI, neither kill adult fleas, which are the part of the flea life cycle that cause the biting and itching. Most eggs/larva/pupae are in environment, not on dog, so how effective are IGR/IDI really? (rhetorical question) If an adulticide has a fast speed of kill,in theory, that is all you need.
If lufenuron is such a great product, why did Program (Novartis) not become a blockbuster product like spinosad (Elanco)?

No matter what flea product client uses, client needs to be consistent when treat environment and utilizing flea prevention. Surely, most everyone can agree with this.

Trifexis is working very well so far in many of my accounts. The dermatologist speaks the real truth, and after seeing the newly revised AE list for crapstr, I'm glad to see it go to the waste basket. Everyone is switching to sexy Trisexis. My bet is all in for Elanco.

Worried Re: Trifexis

We recently got a 2 year old Anatolian Shepard. It was shipped through 2 states by car and given Trifexis the morning it started the journey. She vomited 1 hour after taking it. approximately 24 hours after taking it the dog had what appeared to be an epileptic seizure. It was in a room alone with no noise or stimuli that may trigger a seizure. The prior owners say they have never witness this ever before with this dog. The dog is also in estrus.
Would Trifexis be a contributor to this seizure?

Would Trifexis be a contributor to this seizure?
The novartis rep who posted this fiction should grow a brain. Nobody who reads this crap would believe that a client would ever think to ask about an AE on this site, and they certainly wouldn't ask the idiots from nvrts. Common sense . . . what a moron. Haha.

Trifexis has a caution label, not a warning, for dogs with pre-existing seizures. Read the label.
Just in case you don't know where to look... Check under PRECAUTIONS. Also, if this was a 'legit' pet owner, I recommend discussing this with a vet, not cafepharma on the Novartis Page. Novartis reps do not like Trifexis, as Trifexis is taking market share ($) from them.

Question Re: Trifexis

I have a question for any novartis employee who has an honest answer (I know that will be difficult).
I would like to know why the marketing department thought it would be valid, appropriate, and respectable to create a sell sheet which includes charts from two different studies that you didn't complete yourself?
Surely you guys would have first read all pertinent information from each study and realize that the study designs were/are flawed! Neither study holds water in the eyes of educated DVMs, so what made you guys feel that the results would look any better on your brochure?

Try this ... Complete a peer reviewed, double blinded study with 600 fleas on each dog with several different groups of dogs, for a period of 90 days. Examine each dog for fleas every 5 days. Inspect every dog for signs of FAD, alopecia, pruritus, pyoderma, and make some more charts for your brochures.

Could you actually show a better result than Comfortis? My bet as a clinician is NO! Your products don't kill fleas, which allows fleas to eat blood meals all day, every day . . . and all night too. Yuk!

Congratulations to Elanco for getting it right. Trifexis is now the leading product in our clinic, we switched from Comfortis.

Trifexis is a great product and killing Sentinel.
Not a good time to join Novartis. Beaten by competition, nothing in the pipeline and bad management.

Hey stud muffin, sorry to hear about your shortness. Nothing seems to be stopping Trifexis, not even your little rooster. Heeheehee . . .
