I gave this to my Aussie Bulldog for the first time last night and she has been vomiting ever since. She keeps arching her back like she has a sore tummy and is lethargic. So annoyed as this cost $140 for 6 months worth and we won't be using it again.
Purchased in August 2019 for $139.00.
Been using this for years its amazing!
Have used this product for years on my boxers, works AMAZING!!
For people that are rating this product down because their dog has had seizures.. Your dog would have had an underlying issue beforehand. As the product states on the packet you should be consulting with your Vet to make sure your dog does not have heartworm before using the preventative medication.
ANDDD if your dog has fleas before using this product it ALSO states it only kills flea larvae and eggs not adult fleas (there are 4 stages of fleas not just eggs and the adult flea)...

Easiest method to avoid Heartworms, Intestinal Worms and Fleas
Feed it to your dog with a full meal just like a treat. My dog would not know what a flea was, and has never had intestinal worms. Easy, quick, fuss and mess-free this is the simplest method to keep your dog Heartworm-free and never know a flea. It is a once-a-month chew, and the dog loves it. The product is highly efficient, and you will never have smelly or sticky fur on the back of their neck again. My Belgian Shepherds have never experienced nasty side-effects and each month they all think that it is "treat time". I have used this product since its introduction to the Market and have never had a problem.
Convenient and effective IF you control adult fleas first
I see some reviewers are frustrated as they expect this product to kill adult fleas, which it does not. The product purpose is to break the breeding cycle: when an adult flea lays eggs, they can't hatch. It's unavoidable that your dog will get fleas from other dogs, fleas jump on from the grass, flea eggs at home will hatch up to a year later. The key is to stop these odd few fleas becoming a plague, this is what you are paying for, and this is why you use it over the long term on dogs that don't have fleas. The worming part is a bonus, and it ...works well. So if you have a current flea problem you must kill the adult fleas - most effective method is wash your pet with a Permoxin based product twice a week until all the adult fleas are dead. Inspect your pet thoroughly to find out. Mandatory to treat all bedding with the same chemical, and flea bomb your house too. It's such a chore but there are no shortcuts to eradicating a plague of fleas. With adult fleas now under control, Sentinel Spectrum will help you keep it that way.

It works - I just wish it covered ticks as well
It is a great product. I have been using this product on several dogs since 1999. I have found it effective in preventing fleas and the worms it claims to control. A couple of my dogs have disliked the taste of the chews, but I find that cutting the tablet up and coating it in something the dog likes, such as vegemite makes the chews more palatable for the dog.
After swapping to this treatment my dog suffered terribly, it did not prevent fleas at all. My dog did NOT have fleas, the treatment i was using work magnificently, however i purchased sentinal as it was a bit cheaper, a week after first chew i noticed her scratching, by week three she has bad flea allergy sores all over her, she has hair missing off her tail, she is super sensitive to fleas, has cost me twice as much buying creams and a cone. Will never again use this product and would warn others about the experience I've had. Back to my regular more expensive brand...revolution.
My retired Greyhound has been using this every month for 6 years. She eats it as a treat and really seems to enjoy it! So easy and convenient. No fleas or worms or any other issues or side effects to report so it must be doing its job...
The only downside is the high cost but we always buy on special so it works out well. We have just adopted another retired Greyhound who loves these new 'treats' too! We will ALWAYS use this fantastic product and would also highly recommend to other dog lovers!
My Labrador hates them!
I'm nearing the end of my patience trying to get my dog to consume this very expensive medication.
I've tried hiding them cut up fine among her food, but as soon as she smells it she walks away from her food no matter how hungry she is.
How can this company claim a dog will readily accept them whole and chew them up
She won't accept Canex either (same method) which apparently does all worms except heartworm
Is there a better alternative my dog will actually accept?
Not a nice product
After having given a chew to our dog about 14hrs later found my beautiful fur baby on the kitchen floor having a grand mal seziure it was so scary when she came to took her to the vet bloods done etc and release with meds to help her she has the same routine every day and this day the only thing different was we put her on sentinel as my daughter had got the wrong brand we didnt think it would harm as the other product had not the vet said she could not rule out that my fur baby has a a reaction to the product then after reading other reviews Im shocked as they say dogs are vomiting and other symptoms will not be giving this to my dog any more
steer clear of this brand
Can't please everyone all of the time!
I have used sentinel spectrum on all of my dogs 1. rottweiller 2. American bulldog 3.neopolitan mastiff and now my miniature schnauzers it is a fantastic product. Regarding the fleas, in all my years of using sentinel I have seen fleas on the schnauzers once and this was due to them playing with other dogs that had fleas. The fleas jumped onto my dog however they could not live on my dogs they died a quick death.
This product really is very convenient as it treats several things at once and I am not constantly having to think what pill is due at what time..
What a waste of money. Don't bother.
I tried this product as one of our Golden Retrievers gets very sleepy when given Comfortis which is what we had been using till now, and the sleepiness persists for over 12 hours.
Whilst the dogs were happy to take these chews without forcing it down their throats like most medication, that's the only good thing about this product.
Did not kill any fleas.
And yes, before you ask, I did use Capstar prior to kill adult fleas that might have been on them.
The dogs were still scratching and still had fleas even after repeated doses of Capstar a...
Too expensive - Not worth the Money
I have had my three German Shepherd Dogs, two of them are 5years old and the little one is 1 year old right from the beginning on Sentinel. But that is only because of the Heart worm Protection - I kind of hope it helps to protect against Heart worms. My girls take the chews, but my boy hates them - as easy as it is to force him to take a tablet - try to force a Dog to take a chew!!! In my point of view this is an overpriced and useless product, because I still need Frontline for all three of them to protect them from fleas and ticks. The Last ...Summer was the worst. So what's the point of spending AU$ 570 a year for Sentinel and have to spend another AU$ 450 for protections against Fleas??? At the moment I am looking into alternatives. I don't think that I will ever buy this product again. Price too high for that it doesn't even protect against fleas and ticks as advertised
