What Are The Benefits?
Trifexis is an oral chew so there is no external residue. It is an all-in-one product that kills fleas and prevents heartworms and other parasites. Fleas and Heartworms are not just uncomfortable annoyances, they can actually kill dogs. Hookworms and Roundworms are parasites easily transmitted in the environment. They have been known to be transferred to humans and cause blindness and discomfort. It is much less expensive to invest in prevention than pay for costly treatments later. Please note that it does NOT kill ticks.
