Side effects are rare, though some pets may exhibit vomiting, depression, drowsiness, itching, hives, loss of appetite, diarrhea, or seizures, hypersalivation, and weakness. If these or other symptoms develop contact your veterinarian. It's important to maintain good personal hygiene, since humans can contract hookworms and roundworms. It's also important to eliminate fleas and to not feed your pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent re-infection, clean up stools on a daily basis. Consult your veterinarian for pregnant or lactating dogs.

Sentinel is a prescription medication FDA-approved for use in dogs. Sentinel is available as artificial beef flavored (derived from pork and soy protein) chewable tablets. This medication should be given once a month year-round.
Give Sentinel exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you do not understand the directions ask your pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The usual dose of Sentinel for dogs 2 to 10 pounds is 1 Flavor Tab every month (Brown Box), 11 to 25 pounds is 1 Flavor Tab every month (Green Box), 26 to 50 pounds is 1 Flavor Tab every month (Yellow Box) and 51 to 100 pounds is 1 Flavor Tab every month (White Box). For dogs over 100 pounds give the appropriate combination of tablets. To ensure adequate absorption, always administer Sentinel to dogs immediately after or in conjunction with a normal meal. Heartworm testing should be performed prior to the start of prevention therapy. If your pet is off Sentinel for 6 months or less, re-start the medication and test after 6 months since microfilaria, that take 6 months to mature, will result in a positive test result. Store Sentinel in a dry place at controlled room temperature, between 59-77F (15-25 C). Do not remove the tablet from its wrapper until ready to give the medicine. Keep this medication away from children and pets. Consult your veterinarian for pregnant or lactating dogs.
While Sentinel is safe to use in dogs at risk for MDRI-allele mutation (Australian Shepherds, Collies, Shelties, etc.), unless tested normal, caution is advised if your pet is also being given amiodarone (Cordarone), azole antifungals such as ketoconazole, carvedilol (Coreg), cyclosporine (Atopica), diltiazem (Cardizem), erythromycin (Ery-Tabs) or clarithromycin (Biaxin), quinidine, spironolactone (Aldactone), tamoxifen, and verapamil (Calan). Do not give Sentinel to your pet if already giving an alternate heartworm medication.

Preventer Plus Flavor Tabs (milbemycin oxime + lufenuron) are available in four tablet sizes in color-coded packages for oral administration to dogs and puppies according to their weight. Each tablet is formulated to provide a minimum of 0.23 mg/lb (0.5 mg/kg) body weight of milbemycin oxime and 4.55 mg/pound (10 mg/kg) body weight of lufenuron. Milbemycin oxime consists of the oxime derivatives of 5-didehydromilbemycins in the ratio of approximately 80% A4 and 20% A3 Milbemycin oxime is classified as a macrocyclic antihelminthic.
IndicationsPreventer Plus Flavor Tabs are indicated for use in dogs and puppies, four weeks of age and older, and two pounds body weight or greater. Preventer Plus Flavor Tabs are indicated for the prevention of heartworm disease caused by Dirofilaria immitis, for the prevention and control of flea populations, the control of adult Ancylostoma caninum (hookworm), and the removal and control of adult Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina (roundworms) and Trichuris vulpis (whipworm) infections.
Preventer Plus Flavor Tabs are palatable and most dogs will consume the tablet when offered by the owner. As an alternative to direct dosing, the tablets can be hidden in food. Be certain the dog consumes the entire tablet. Administer Preventer Plus Flavor Tabs to dogs immediately after or in conjunction with a normal meal. Food is essential for adequate absorption of lufenuron. Watch the dog closely following administration to be sure the entire dose have been consumed
PrecautionsDo not use in puppies less than four weeks of age and less than two pounds of body weight. Prior to initiation of the Preventer Plus Flavor Tabs treatment program, dogs should be tested for existing heartworm infections. Infected dogs should be treated to remove adult heartworms and microfilariae prior to initiating treatment with Preventer Plus Flavor Tabs. Mild transient hypersensitivity reactions manifested as labored respiration, vomiting, salivation and lethargy, have been noted in some treated dogs carrying a high number of circulating microfilariae. These reactions are presumably caused by release of protein from dead or dying microfilariae.
We've given Sentinel to our current 3 dogs for as long as I can remember. We also gave it to our dogs who have since crossed the rainbow bridge. We have never had any worm issues and it's worked well for all our dogs of various breeds (maltese, rottweiler, mutts, etc).

The palatable once-a-month prescription tablet that prevents heartworm disease and flea populations in dogs and puppies. SENTINEL (milbemycin oxime/lufenuron) Flavor Tabs also control flea populations and adult hookworms, and remove and control adult roundworm and whipworm infection in dogs and puppies.
When treatment was initiated during the flea season, lufenuron tablets were effective in controlling flea infestations on dogs that completed the study. The mean flea count per lufenuron-treated dog was approximately 74 prior to treatment but had decreased to 4 after six monthly doses of lufenuron. A topical adulticide was used in the first eight weeks of the study to kill the pre-existing adult fleas.
Two studies in heartworm-infected dogs were conducted which demonstrated mild, transient hypersensitivity reactions in treated dogs with high microfilaremia counts (see Precautions for reactions observed). Safety studies in pregnant dogs demonstrated that high doses (1.5 mg/kg = 3X) of milbemycin oxime given in an exaggerated dosing regimen (daily from mating through weaning), resulted in measurable concentrations of the drug in milk. Puppies nursing these females which received exaggerated dosing regimens demonstrated milbemycin-related effects. These effects were directly attributable to the exaggerated experimental dosing regime. The product is normally intended for once-a-month administration only. Subsequent studies included using 3X daily from mating to one week before weaning and demonstrated no effects on the pregnant females or their litters. A second study where pregnant females were dosed once at 3X the monthly use rate either before, on the day of or shortly after whelping resulted in no effects on the puppies. 041b061a72
