Same problem I had. I think they are running out of money. Their human side is about to go broke, so it must be trickling down.

Neither the vet specialists nor the regular family vet believe there is any correlation between her having been on JUST TWO DOSES of Trifexis, and now her liver is failing.

We adopted her from a No-Kill group when she was 2 years old, knowing she had a light case of heartworms, with their advice to just keep her on heartworm preventative, and see how she did. If needed, we could put her through the heartworm cure, but we didn't have to put her through the extreme treatment immediately. The expectation was that the situation would not get worse, and it might get better. In fact, she's done fine with us for these four years and been a loved family pet. We've had 7 healthy pets over the years, and here she is the one dying of liver failure.

THE ONLY THING WE DID DIFFERENTLY THIS FALL is change her from two separate medicines of heartworm preventative and Comfortis to this one monthly tablet of Trifexis. And, she had only two doses of Trifexis in these last two months.

Maybe Trifexis is not the culprit. Maybe her liver was going to flame out over these two months anyway, but I will never use Trifexis again on any animal in my care.

DO NOT USE THIS MEDICINE. IT'S JUST NOT WORTH THE RISK TO YOUR PET. I suspect that my dog is just one more of the company's guinea pigs to locate the contraindications for the use of their medicine. If the nation's vets do not think it's a problem now, maybe a lot more dogs have to die to get their attention and force the company to take some precautions to warn dog owners that this product may not be suitable for some animals. The vet's techs had no such warnings when advising me that I could switch my dog over to Trifexis and save a few bucks. Two months on Trifexis, and now, after four good years, my dog is dying? I think it is far more than just a coincidence.
Sorry to read about your pet. I read your post and checked my FDA label in my package of Trifexis. To avoid looking like a complete moron, you must not make such loud claims without first checking your facts. The label states that the manufacturer gave 17X dose over ten days and did not see any health risks with liver, kidneys, heart, brain, CNS, or anything else you care to make up. Again, sorry about your pet, but its not likely that a flea medication caused it.

We had a horrible experience and found MANY other dog owners reporting the same terrible reaction to this medication. We gave our 11 month blue tick coonhound a Trifexis tablet this Monday night. About 5 hours later, he was displaying the same symptoms that several of you mentioned. His eyes were rolling back into his head and he couldnít focus on anything, he would look up at ceiling and open his mouth, try to sleep standing up and acted like a zombie! He couldnít settle or sleep for awhile and was cold to the touch. He was shivering and when we flashed a bright flashlight he didnít even flinch. We will NEVER give it to him again. It took 18 hours before he started acting normal again. Something needs to be done about that drug. We felt horrible for giving it to him. I have to wonder if it was poisoning him or affecting his brain the way it may do to the parasites itís intended to treat. Here is the website we found similar experiences and we just added ours since it sure was a help at 3 a.m. when a vet wasnít available by phone.

It has come to my attention that Vetsource has just signed a deal to provide the pharmacy filling for WagRx/Amazon.com

How do I get manufacturer contracts to buy direct and 10-20% under vet list costs and then turn around to sell to Amazon.com and it's owned entities?

Good job Novartis for that lucritive contract

People, if your pet has a problem or reaction to any product, report it to that manufacturer. Not cafepharma. This site is for whiners, sucky sales reps and a few unfortunate souls that stumble on to it.

I wonder what kind of a kick-back the vet's offices are getting to push this stuff when a dog is doing fine on their old medicine.
My dog had an extremely bad reaction too. 2 hours after taking the drug she acted like she had drank a case of beer. She was breathing really hard and could barely stand up. She walked like she was really drunk. I called my Vet and they said it sounded like an allergic reaction and to give her Benedryl. After taking the large dosage of Benedryl she was still really agitated and it took 4 hours for her to go to sleep. They called the company and the Vet there confirmed that it was an adverse reaction to the drug.

Our two older goldens have been using Trifexis (tm) at the behest of our great vet, for five months. One gulps it down, the other needs to be coaxed, but also accepts it. We have observed no problems with either dog -- no seizures, no unusual hurling of food, no problems with annual blood sample. My wife and I are not pharma reps, primarily because we are not 23-year-old swimsuit models, but also because we have scruples (based on what we read here). Hope other readers have the same luck as we did. Oh, and we were Frontline Plus users for years, until both dogs developed a flea problem. Comfortis knocked it 100 percent out in less than four hours -- most of the fleas were dead in thirty minutes !

Trifexis almost killed my 11 year old Daschund . After giving her the 6th dose she was acting strange.Starting with; looking very scared, shaking, very sensitive to the touch, not wanting to move, not eating or drinking. She could not walk on the 10th day. This drug should be recalled. I took her to the vet. And they did xrays which came out perfect. Blood work that showed liver problems. The vet perscribed denosyl to help with her liver, but the Trifexis is in her blood stream for 30 days . Nothing else I can do. (only hope she lives )

It's not a smear campaign against Trifexis. Only a warning to save a dogs life. It was approved by the FDA Jan. 2011. Drug reactions unfortunately happen after they are approved. I am sure you have heard of drug recalls.

What a disgusting human being you are, the Trifexis facebook page has many dire experiences with this drug. To be so disrespectful to people who have had a sick family pet or the death of one from Trifexis truly speaks to your character, shame on you.

Opened it, read all of the BS written by reps, their friends, and reps' twisted family members who have nothing better to do. Write your fiction on whatever web page you want to, but remember one thing, you can't stop this train! Trifexis is the best, safest, cleanest, most effective product on the market, and millions of happy clients drown out your fictitious cries.

I almost don't believe that some of you are really reps for these companies! i don't know crap about this subject just got here looking for reviews on Trifexis and feel like I stumbled into the junior high locker room. " Your dumb. no, your dumb no, you and anyone who buys this product is dumb" Really? that's what your going with for your reasoning? I feel a little dumber just reading some of these comments. well there goes 10 minutes of my life wasted.

I bought this for my 1.5 year old, 65 lb Boxer. This is the only change he has experienced in his routine. This is the first time he took the product. Within 2 hours he was groggy, unable to focus his eyes, disoriented, unable to walk, completely uninterested in any food or water and experiencing tremors. He has been sleeping almost exclusively for the last 12 hours and will only drink water if I give it to him out of a turkey baster.

This product has been cited in other cases with similar side effects. It is apparently incredibly dangerous and I urge you to talk extensively with your veterinarian, and veterinarians with your clients before giving it to any animal. My dog is dealing with what the vet described as toxicity which is affecting his neurological capacities. Please be careful with this product. This has been a really scary experience for my pet and I. I know this is not going to happen in all animals but as I have been reading online forums this seems to be a more common side effect than is initially stated.

Nine years ago come Oct. I lost my 4 year old golden retriever after he got a ProHeart injection. I found story after story on the web of people who lost or almost lost a dog to it. In some caes, families lost 2 dogs.

Fort Dodge claimed it was all rumor, their product was perfectly safe, and many people called us nuts, etc for telling our story. BUT then after so many deaths were reported and investigated (we had to send complete medical history of our dead or sick dogs to the FDA) it was removed from the market and the FDA did not allow it back for almost 4 years til it was reformulaed. And it was returned with a black label warning. People were not quite so skeptical then. and for the record, Fort Dodge made a seettlement with me without my singing the required "jeep my mouth shut" release and that money helped pay a good chuck of my boys $2300 vet bill for a week in ICU, tests, meds,necropsy, etc.
I know dogs can have reactions to anything, but when a heartworm prevention kills as many dogs in 4 years time as all other combined, some out for 25 years, has done---there is a problem. I am checking out Trifexis in case I have to switch from the now rare to be found Interceptor. Unless you hae had a dog die a horrible death follwoing a drug, you can't know what it is like.

Trifexis is the best thing going right now. Too bad that you are employed by a failing drug company. FDA said YOU can't make quality drugs! FDA shut you down! Meantime, Trifexis is being used with incredible results nationwide.

Too bad you have to create such crap to feel better about the long days without products.
Too bad you are such an idiot!

I just gave my dog his first dose of it two weeks ago. He started itching uncontrollably and is now covered in hot spots. The vet has him on medication but so far it's not helping. I'm not happy with this medication and I just spent a fortune on it and can't use it at all.I will be going back to interceptor and frontline.

You win. Because of your honest opinion, we will shut down the product and call it a day like the manufacturer of Interceptor did recently. By the way, Frontline is best if purchased through Costco because the key ingredients are stronger. For sure. Too bad your fortune is gone.

Lmao!!! Seriously!??!! Companies are getting this desperate? Lololol!!

FYI: I like many dog owners spent time with my dog long enough to know if she pukes up her pills... adulticides kill fleas... which means no more reproduction. Not only that but comfortis does so for AN ENTIRE MONTH... which means all those life cycles will eventually be dead when they reach the dog... but that's considering your not smart enough to follow directions and spray & clean your house if you have an infestation. But killing the adult fleas that your dog is more likely to pick up and killing them before they have a chance to infest your home... unlike sentinel which merely steralizes them or other products that might not work.... well I chose comfortis & am comfortable that my baby can pet my flea free dog and not get in contact with pesticides. The only thing close is capstar... but that only lasts a day but still works for a cycle breaker.

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.

You are wrong. Comfortis (and Trifexis) kill fast enough to prevent infestation for only about 2 weeks. After that, fleas start living long enough (longer than 24 hours) to lay viable eggs

Trifexis is available at your LOCAL COSTCO. It may take up to 2 weeks to come in. Bring your prescription and they'll order it for you. It is NOT available with COSTCO-online ordering.

-Also, it is covered by COSTCO's 100% satisfaction guarantee.
> COSTCO will issue you a FULL REFUND -if you are dissatisfied, your dog has a negative reaction, or you chose to switch to something else. What better guartantee can you get???

"Novartis has announced production to begin again in Sepember 2012."

How I would love to believe this. Got a link?
Heartgard almost killed one of my dogs (she tested negative all ways for MDR1 but had a severe reaction to Torbuterol & Acepromazine as well). 54 days out (last dose), she began to recover & 61 days out, she was all but back to normal. I have 4 dogs on Iverhart & 4 on Interceptor.

It's too bad this is such a flakey message board. If these are pharmaceutical/ pharmacological (or whatever the hell Y'All call yourselves) professionals, God Help us! I can- & do, avoid doctors like the plague. With my dogs, it's not quite that easy.
I got a completely flakey response when I called the 800 number (through the operator, not the recording) at pet wellness.com, too. It didn't make me feel better, esp since she was just a flunkie answering the phone.

You guys are digging your own grave (putting yourselves out of a job is what I mean). If you don't know how this is eroding people's trust in doctors, vets, & pharma, you're in denial. Y'All are utterly destroying your- & their, credibility.

Trifexis is NOT going to happen in this house.

Returning my trifexis , my black lab mix is lethargic and out of breath quickly. I'm just glad it wasn't worse! She used to be on heartgaurd and frontline ...seemed to do well.
Bye-bye TRIFEXIS.

there is a recall petition on line for the drug. sign it. It's a bad drug. And it's not the heartworm part of it it's the flea killing part. put poison in their system, i guess they'll get sick. Fleas are hard "suckers" to kill!!

Looked up this "petition" on line, is basically the same 10 people who do all the posting on Facebook about the product and people they interact with on other message boards (they always put their name out there for recognition). So to get this straight there are a small group of people (150-200) claiming an FDA approved drug with well over 2 MILLION Doses out there is the sole reason behind their pets misfortunes....

Hmm, less than half of a percent complaining just think if we heard from even a portion of the customers using product, their words/thoughts/comments would be seen very differently.

Also, if it were "just the flea killing part" which is Comfortis the number of doses being used would more double with posted "issues" being even less.

Just a thougt, overall perception is never represented just the negative bystanders usually.

Not 1 product is for everyone, I just recommend getting them from your Veterinaroan for when/if theses few and unfortunate circumstances do arise you have someone to help you. B/c if it came from the Internet there's no telling what you really got in the first place.

My gosh, your spelling ability would directly enhance your credibility. Just saying, grammar in the medical field does have an effect on how you are perceived. Do not call me the grammar nazi. You should either write properly, or do not write and preach at all.

Pretty shitty & weak to just artack grammar on here. I agree it isn't good but the point is established and it is a fairly good one for once on this board. If you dont have a better objection than grammar you should probably just save yourself the time of posting at all.

To Poster Above with an actual point: Solid post, thank you for some actusl perspective based ob factual information. In the future work on using better punctuation and grammar for those who have nothing better to bitch about, such as Novartis employees who have no products to sell other than generics and cat NSAIDS.

I am asking honestly. I really don't know what product to get now. I got Trifexis for my dog and she has had two doses thus far and has had ABSOLUTELY NO adverse effects so its no surprise that these posts are shocking to me. I didn't realize that people had such bad experience and would NEVER had given my dog this medication if I had. My BIG problem isn't that she had any adverse effects - ONLY THAT IT HASN'T SEEMED TO WORK!!!! I switched her over to kill fleas that she caught at a stupid hotel and now two weeks later (yes only two weeks - I gave her two doses inside of a week because I wasn't sure if she actually got the dosage down because she STILL HAD FLEAS!!!) - and now at two (almost three) weeks later - SHE STILL DOES!!!!! I paid $86 for a 6 month supply for my Shih Tzu mix and it hasn't worked at all. And oh, I also realize this post is like a year late but whatever - maybe somebody will read it?????

Fun thread to read! I own a small practice, have been an exclusive Frontline Plus practice until last year. In the face of rising client complaints about lack of efficacy and the ready availability of the product and generics in local stores we introduced Comfortis and Trifexis last year. Since Jan 1, 2012 Comfortis/Trifexis accounts for 55% of our flea control sales by numbers and is increasing, Frontline Plus is down to 45% and decreasing. So far one pack was returned for vomiting, upon further questioning the owner revealed the dog vomited once one week after administration.

As far as client perception, we are getting the rave reviews from our clients that we used to get about Frontline Plus until about three years ago. As a veterinary practitioner I am quite happy with the product.

I stumbled on to cafepharma while doing a search for drug interactions and reactions on humans. So with that said, i am a novice to the goings on here. But i feel the need to chime in here...
Are you aware of the number of adverse events reported on products people use everyday: pet products like topical flea/tick, anti-inflammatories or pain meds or for humans- Advil, Tylenol, antacids, psuedoephedrin, antihistamines, decongestants, nyquil, systemic sleep agents, all Rx or chemo and radiation? So either you are not aware of this or you think all medications/preventions should be pulled from the market no matter what the benefits are to the public? Try reading a Tylenol label and google its adverse events...you may just keel over (not a mispell but rather a boat reference- seeing as some people like to point out typos)
How many people take tylenol to alleviate a hang over? Were you aware that it is harder for the liver to process tylenol after exposure to alcohol therefore can lead to early liver failure. And what about alcohol and the adverse reactions of that..... The list goes on.... This is where people need to educate themselves on what their options are and is the risk worth the benefit.

I am amazed at the ignorance and pessimism on this website.... And feel my IQ has dropped just by posting on it. And on that note, i bid farewell as i must go wash the CP filth off.

I notice you wrote this anonymously, you would think a veterinarian and so called educated person sign their post. So then we would all know to not go to! Do some continuing education and learn about pesticides. Go to the Trifexis facebook page and read the posts, so you are ready when one of your patients comes in with their dying dog. Not putting your name will probably save you from being sued, coward.
Signed, an educated person who knows pesticides are lethal and we if don't put them on us and our kids we should not be putting it on our other family members...pets!

Who prescribes Advil? Trifexis is purchased from a vet under prescription, one would assume your vet has researched what he prescribes, or law suits would follow.
What a ridiculous non relative post. Go wash that minute brain cell you have as well.
Novice is a total understatement!
