On July 30, 2012, my sweet little dog Peaches died from being poisoned from a hideous, toxic heartworm drug called Trifexis, made by Elanco. I have already created a petition to get Trifexis recalled, and I have over 1600 signatures, plus a Facebook page with thousands of likes of people who have had the same experience.

Today I was checking my site and saw that there is a new drug called Comboguard for dogs, that not only has the exact same ingredients as Trifexis, but nearly identical packaging. I was immediately suspicious and looked closer at the site, a new company called Vethical. Closer inspection revealed that this site is also run by Elanco, the makers of Trifexis! They are changing their name and their product's name in order to hide from the law! This should be completely illegal! This drug, under a different name, has killed thousands of innocent dogs!

To:
Recall the Toxic Heartworm Drug Comboguard!

Sincerely,

      My friend's English Bulldog had seizures 3 hours after receiving Comboguard and almost died. He is still not the same, lost his basic routine like taking walks to relieve himself instead does it where he is because he's not the same. This medication is dangerous and should be pulled from the market IMMEDIATELY!!!!

      I have thought about using these drugs because I am having a hard time with fleas but after hearing and reading about the deaths due to this and others like it I have totally decided against them. Would you give a human a drug that would possibly kill them? My animals are my family and I will fight against drugs like these and others to rid them from the shelves and vets!
