Which weight range of dog Trifexis did Annie ingest, please, and how much does Annie weigh?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The weight range is 10-20lbs. Annie weighs approx. 7lbs
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.
Thank you. The amount of spinosad in the 10-20 lb dog range is 270 mg which is exactly what a cat of Annie's weight should receive. The amount of milbemycin in the 10-20 lb dog range is lower than that which I would administer to Annie. She should do nicely - perhaps a bit of vomiting which is a common side effect of spinosads. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Fantastic! Thanks so much!

It's my pleasure. Give Annie a kiss for me.
