Trifexis:  What Clients Should Know

We have received several concerned phone calls from clients this week regarding a recent Indy Star article covering controversy concerning Trifexis.  This is an oral pill that is prescribed by veterinarians worldwide for dogs to prevent heartworm disease, kill internal parasites and fleas. 

Trifexis has been on the market since 2011 and is used in over 15,000 veterinary clinics worldwide.  Over 70 million doses have been dispensed to patients by licensed, trained veterinarians to date.  Any reports that Elanco receives are reported to the FDA and investigated.  Autopsies post-mortum are done on every reported case, and there has yet to be a definitive link between the drug and deaths.  There have been NO cases of death that have been truly linked to Trifexis. 

As veterinarians and advocates for our pets and patients, we will continue to stand behind this product as there has not been any scientific evidence that concretely supports the link between Trifexis use and pet death.  We will continue to stay alert regarding this issue and be a resource for pet owners on this issue. 

Here are some links to find out more information about this drug and its safety:
