lkellen I don't think it is a side effect, I am afraid that since she did not get her dose last month, she may have contracted a few fleas or something of the like and possibly, a yeast infection flared up again since she is licking so much, especially after urinating. (she spent a day with my cousins dogs who are inside and out dogs, and last time, she came home with a few fleas.) I have not noticed any on her though. Her vet appointment had to be moved to this coming Saturday due to over booking.

billsharp We use Trifexis. No itching or unusual "cleaning" behavior noted here.

lkellen That's what we are on. Since I was out of her food and needed something, I went ahead and bought a smaller bag of her Purina One healthy puppy formula for large breed puppies, but I would REALLY like to get her on something else! I just need some guidance as to which is good to switch to.


She is our first german shepherd, so I need lots of advice! :-/

I'd say 7-8 mos, but we also usually use regular adult food for large breed puppies, instead of lg. breed puppy food.

lkellen I am not excited for the price of it either! I do make sure to give it to Remy after she eats.

HankGSD Not real excited with the price of Trifexis, but it was given to us as an alternative to Sentinel which is currently out of production. For now, being winter in a cold climate, the vet gave us Heartgard Plus for 4 months and I will give Hank the last dose I have of Trifexis in May. By then, I am hoping Sentinel will be available again. My breeder had pushed Revolution but I found it extremely messy and felt like most of it ended up dried up in his fur rather than on his skin. Also very expensive. I am supposed to use Frontline if we see any fleas; hoping that won't happen during the winter months.

I really do prefer the pills that combine heartworm and flea protection, but the vet is not stocking Trifexis at this time. I decideded to try the Heartgard Plus for the winter months and it is a huge savings over Sentinel or Trifexis.

I haven't had any vomiting or other adverse reactions with Trifexis, I make sure to give it with his meal.

Yes, the vet gave her 2 weeks worth of clavamox tablets, 2 times a day

msvette2u Try Kirkland Signature from costco. It has rice but no corn, wheat, soy, or by-products.

Diamond NATURALS is a good choice as well. Blue Buffalo is good but pricier than either of the two I listed.
We use Kirkland Signature for all our dogs and they are all in good health.
