Many dogs have become ill and some have even died after taking the heart worm and flea preventative Trifexis. Vomiting, loss of appetite, lethargy, disorientation, labored breathing and seizures have all been linked to this product. In some dogs the effects were so severe that they were killed by it.
Trifexis is not safe. Do a simple Internet search on the drug to find the stories of dog owners who have lost their best friends to this tablet. The FDA and Elanco (the makers of Trifexis) know how deadly this drug is. When contacted, the doctor representing Trifexis defended the drug and had "all the right things" to say. She was so sorry our dog died, but assured us that her product was safe. One excuse she gave was that the tablet can bring out underlying issues in dogs. Well.. If those dogs never ingested the tablet they would still be with their families! Please join our effort to protect other potential Trifexis customers and their dogs by signing this petition.
**If Trifexis has made your dog sick PLEASE be sure to report it to Elanco and the FDA in addition to signing this petition.**
