Providing the best possible care to family dog(s) is the common goal for you and your veterinarian. The main goal is to keep your dog healthy and active so they can enjoy many years of fun, love, and adventure. The prevention and treatment of heartworm disease is a very high priority when it comes to a dog’s health and that is why Novartis created Sentinel Flavor Tabs for Heartworm & Flea Prevention.

Sentinel Flavor Tabs are once-a-month tablets that can prevent and treat heartworm disease and flea populations in dogs and puppies. Indicated use suggests use in puppies that are four weeks of age or older, and two pounds of body weight or greater. Sentinel Flavor Tabs are orally administered and extremely palatable to dogs, which makes treating them that much easier. Dogs love the taste so much, they will think you are giving them a treat! Before giving Sentinel to you dog, please talk to your veterinarian.

Sentinel Flavor Tabs for Dogs indicated uses are:

  • Removal and control of adult roundworm Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonine

To ensure adequate absorption, it is recommended that tabs are administered to dogs immediately after or in conjunction with a meal.  It is also recommended that the tablets be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month, as a preventative health measure.
