Sentinel GREEN SINGLE 10.1 - 25 lbs
Our records indicate your pet should have received the last monthly dose of Sentinel.
Sentinel is a prescription chewable monthly oral combination heartworm/intestinal worm/flea preventative. It has two ingredients: Milbemycin, which prevents heartworms & intestinal worms, and Lufenuron, which sterilizes fleas. Sentinel is an extremely safe combination preventative, enjoying a long, proven track record of efficacy with good patient tolerance.
Dogs who already have heartworms can have a potentially fatal drug reaction if given heartworm prevention, including Sentinel. This is why Sentinel is by prescription only. All dogs 6 months of age or older will be heartworm tested prior to starting heartworm preventative, and heartworm tested annually thereafter. Sentinel can not be dispensed without your pet being current on his heartworm test.
Novartis, the manufacturer of Sentinel, guarantees the product to prevent heartworms, whipworms, roundworms, hookworms, and flea infestations. The only requirement to activate or maintain the warranty is a negative heartworm test and negative intestinal parasite test prior to starting the product, and annually thereafter. The warranty is in effect as long as the product is purchased in a timely manner. Sentinel is safe for use in puppies, adult dogs, geriatric dogs, pregnant/nursing dogs, breeding male dogs, and dogs with health problems. There are no known drug interaction problems with Sentinel.
The doctors of Windmill Animal Hospital recommend using Sentinel as a combination preventative for all dogs with low risk of tick exposure and flea infestation.
