Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Do you worry about your dog getting fleas and wonder what kills them? Fleas can be a big nuisance to you and your dog. First, let me explain what they are. Fleas are six legged parasites that feed on blood from their host. They are capable of jumping and they thrive in warm, humid climates. The female needs a blood meal in order to lay her eggs. Their droppings are reddish brown and this is what you see on your dog.

So, one day you are examining your dog and find fleas on them and ask yourself "How do I get rid of these fleas?" There are many options out there. I have found Trifexis to be very effective in preventing fleas and killing them. My dog has been free of fleas with this treatment.

Trifexis is a medication pill that you give your dog once a month. It is a beef flavored chewable tablet and can be given as a treat. It starts killing fleas with in 30 minutes and before they can lay eggs. Milbemycin Oxime and Spinosad are active ingredients in Trifexis and has been proven to kill biting fleas with in 4 hours. It also prevents heart worm and treats and controls hook worms, round worms and whip worms. It is for dogs 8 weeks and older that weigh over 5 pounds. Many people get confused about whether this medication treats ticks and the answer is a big fat NO!

Do not use this product in dogs that are known to have seizures. Puppies less than 14 weeks old also have a higher chance of vomiting. If vomiting occurs with in 1 hour after administering, give another dose of the medication. Some side effects are: vomiting, lethargy, increased or decreased appetite, diarrhea, increased thirst, cough and excessive salivation.

As we all know, there are many ways to treat fleas. Fleas can become a big problem with our doggie companions. I know we all love our furry friends and want to keep them as comfortable as possible by keeping them free of those nasty fleas. I have found Trifexis to be the most effective treatment for my dog. It is easy to get my dog to eat it because it has a beefy taste that she loves. This medication is not only for fleas but also for whip worms, round worms, and hook worms. I am very confident in using Trifexis for my dog and recommend it to all. I know my pet will be protected and happy!
