"More owners, vets claim dog deaths may be linked to Trifexis  drug"

My Favorite Pet – The Vandalia Animal Clinic has become aware of an article that appeared online and local news sources regarding the Heartworm Prevention drug, Trifexis. The article’s headline (listed above) states in part that “…deaths may be linked to Trifexis “.

We at My Favorite Pet have had no cases where Trifexis has been attributed to deaths of canines. Furthermore, the “FDA says there’s no solid evidence that the drug caused deaths.”

My Favorite Pet stands by Elanco and Trifexis as long as the drug is administered according to the manufacturer’s directions and the advice of your veterinarian. If your pet is using Trifexis, continue the use of this product according to the instructions provided and notify My Favorite Pet with any concerns at your earliest opportunity.

If you have additional concerns regarding your pet’s Heartworm Prevention  My Favorite Pet will gladly discuss optional products available for future Heartworm Prevention.

Lama Rigzin, a Buddhist Monk and friend of Dr. Joseph is once again visiting the US and My Favorite Pet. Rigzin comes to us from Nepal, where he is the administrator of a monastery and boys' school. Our western culture is becoming more apparent than ever there and he is here to become more familiar with not only western business practice, but conversational English.
