Death from Trifexis:
Trifexis and Adverse Effects - Whole Dog Journal Blog Article Jim Strickland, a reporter for a TV news station in Atlanta, WSB-TV 2, has been following the story closely, after he received reports from local dog owners about dogs who died following the administration of Trifexis. He was able to obtain both sets of CVM ADE reports, containing data as current as November 14, 2013, concerning Trifexis.

kakarot Hmm, we might try that. Is there a certain brand you guys get as far as the coconut oil goes? Or any is fine as long as is extra virgin?

Apoolutz Might just be puppy dandruff, Gunner had it pretty bad so I added coconut oil to his food 3times daily and brushed him a couple times a day, brushing really loosens the dead skin up, he's almost 15 weeks now and it's all gone.

Nigel You might try giving him some cold pressed, extra virgin, coconut oil, salmon oil may be helpful too, not sure how much though. My dogs eat the coconut right off the spoon or I'll put a couple spoonfuls on their food, either way they love it. For my dog with allergies, the CO helps quell the itching noticeably.

Scratching and whining.

Took our pup to the vet for 1st shots, deworming, etc. and I mentioned to the vet that he's been scratching his neck area a bunch.. but she did see anything and suggested it was probably his collar.

So, we don't put the collar on him unless he needs it on (rarely), but he still scratches his neck and his ears.

This past week, whenever he's about to scratch or is in the process of scratching he WHINES. Like.. -whine..scratchscratchwhinescratch-

He's on Trifexis, vet didn't detect of find any fleas on him or anything.. we haven't given him a bath because he has a wound on his face which is almost healed but we didn't want to irritate it with shampoo and all that stuff.. so we've been wiping him down with the kong puppy wipe things whenever we feel he needs it.

If he might have dry skin, how can I fix it? If it might be something else, what could it be and how can it be helped?
