• My dog takes Trifexis Green (20.1-40lbs) for heartworm and flea prevention but today I found a tick on her and realized she has no tick preventative. Is there one I can combine with trifexis or something that does all three things?

    Hi Julia,
    I recommend that you talk to your local veterinarian about this question. There are some products that can be added to Trifexis to prevent ticks. The heartworm, flea, and tick prevention that is best for a pet will depend on few different factors including where you live, the environment that she is exposed to, her age, weight and breed as well as her overall health. Your vet knows your pet and the risks in your local area so they can recommend the prevention or the combination of medications that will be best to keep her protected.
