Dog owners across the US are questioning whether or not Trifexis is to blame for the death of their dogs.
Trifexis is a once-a-month pill made by Elanco. It is a combination pill for heartworm, parasites and flea prevention. Elanco is the animal health division of pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly.
“Pet owners have filed 2200 reports of the drug causing their dogs to vomit. There are 600 cases of lethargy, and 31 reports of dog deaths. That’s about one per month since the drug hit the market. “
Grieving owners have created a Facebook page to bring more awareness to this issue - https://www.facebook.com/TrifexisKillsDogs
