Why is Trifexis bad for dogs?
If your pet has an underlying seizure disorder, or is prescribed a high-dose Ivermectin treatment, usually for a mite infestation (Demodex or scabies), they should not be on Trifexis or Comfortis. There is potential for a serious drug interaction that can occur causing tremors, seizures and even death.
