Sentinel Dog Flea Heartworm Tabs For Dogs

The sentinel flavor tab flea and heartworm prevention pill was designed for dogs to help prevent both heart worm and flea infestation issues in one tasty flavor tab tablet. The sentinel flea pill comes from Novartis, the same manufacturer of the heartworm preventative interceptor. Sentinel and interceptor also share the same heartworm prevention ingredient, Milbemycin Oxime, however, the sentinel flavor tab has an additional ingredient to help prevent fleas too, an ingredient that interceptor alone doesn't have. The flea prevention ingredient in sentinel, lufenuron, prevents fleas from developing by stopping them in the development stage but it does not kill adult fleas. Something important to know. Lufenuron is also found in the program flea control pill, also from novartis. Some pet owners buy program when all they need is a flea prevention product and others buy interceptor when all they need is a heartworm pill. Sentinel offers dog owners both flea & heartworm prevention in one easy to take tab.  
 
 
 

Potential Novartis Manufacturing Shortage

Current production issues at one of the Novartis pharmaceutical manufacturing plants has led to the temporary production slow down of some novartis products, including sentinel. Some providers are running low and others are beginning to run out of their supply completely.   Below you will find a list of several online pharmacies that may still have the product in stock. Some providers will be starting waiting lists for when sentinel for dogs becomes available again. When you purchase your meds please make sure your cart doesn't say "On Backorder" or "Out Of Stock".

A Summary Of Online Sentinel Reviews

Most product reviews were positive with dog owners using adjectives such as "works", "great", "awesome" and "effective". Many of them mentioned they had been using the product for several years. The most common complaint, when there was one, was that their dogs did not like the taste of the flavor tab. There were a few that felt their dogs had suffered side effects and a few that felt it didn't work, however, the majority submitting reviews gave it high marks.
 

Why Prescriptions Are Required For Heartworm Meds

Since sentinel heartworm prevention and similar meds are not designed to kill already present adult worms, it is important to test your dog for heartworms before you buy and begin a preventative treatment, otherwise the adult infestation could be missed and worsen while you are under the false impression that your pet is heartworm free. Requiring a test before beginning treatment helps prevent this oversight. Also, if you give your pets a preventative when they already have heartworms, it can lead to rare but severe reactions that could be harmful to the dog. Therefore, a prescription is required as a preventative measure to protect your pet.
 
Alternatives To Sentinel
Sentinel has been a popular combination heartworm flea pill for several years, however, with a manufacturing shortage on the horizon dog owners may wish to consider alternative pills for their pets until the shortage is over.
trifexis
A combination flea and heartworm control pill. Trifexis is similar to sentinel in that it is a two in one med. They also have a similar heartworm preventative. But ingredients for flea prevention differ. Sentinel for dogs attacks fleas in their developing stages but trifexis kills fleas in the adult stages instead - making it more suitable of a choice for some pet owners.
comfortis
A flea control pill with a flea killing ingredient similar to the one in trifexis. However, comfortis is not a heartworm preventative.
heartgard plus
A very popular heart worm preventative flavor tab. However, heartgard products do not control fleas.
