Friend, the active ingredients in Trifexis have a very wide safety margin. In experimental studies dogs have been given spinosad at doses of 100mg/kg for 10 days and vomiting was the only symptom noticed. In this case your dog took a dose of 124mg/kg. As far as milbemycin it has a bigger safety margin than spinosad. I don't believe this is going to be life threatening for your dog, she may experience some vomiting otherwise she will be fine.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
