Terrific product and well-priced
I have been using this product on my Maltese Poodle for a few years now and never had an issue. She has never had a negative reaction to the product and gobbles it up each month just like a treat! Gives me peace of mind that she is protected from nasties.
Purchased in February 2019 for $80.00.

Effective but expensive
Our small dog has had no issues since using this product. We have to wrap the pill in ice-cream for him to eat it though and this is OK as its once a month. The RRP on this is outrageous and with an automated on-line search I can still get it for around $13 per pill buying packs of 6 or 9. The dog does still get the occasional Tick and we have to inspect him every day basically for Ticks. No issues with Spectrum other than the cost.

dosn' t work on fleas
Maybe it works on worms but didn't seem to have any effect on fleas. It says on the packet it will not kill fleas but prevents re infection. Both my dogs had fleas during treatments. "did the dogs pick the fleas up from outside"? well the fleas today were tiny so seemed to be new borns. I am going to change products but in all fairness we have people visiting us everyday with their two dogs and have cats so maybe impossible to control xx

Never use this for your loving dog!
I gave this to my dog on December 31st because I was off of work and like to monitor a reaction, of any. From this day on, and it is now Jan 8, my dog has rarely had anything to eat. One side affect of this drug is anorexia. I have never experienced this issue with my dog and would appreciate further studies to determine if this drug is safe as I really dislike the idea of having further vetenary bills on top of what this medication costs. So, the manufacturer needs to put out a warning to dog owners and veterinarians that this is a big problem.
I gave this product to all my pugs and one had a terrible reaction. The next day he acted lethergic and would not eat. Within 24 hours he was having trouble walking with issues in his rear. After 300.00 at my vets and 3 different meds it took him a whole month to come back. It hit his nervous system hard. I will not take the chance of it hurting my other dogs so will not give to any of my animals again.
Flea For All
I applied this product on both of my dogs. No side effects were noted. They are both six years old. One is a Jack Russell and the other is a Jack Russell cross
.I consider my dogs small to medium.The heaviest dog weighs approximately 10 kilos, while the other dog ways approximately 6 kilos To save a few dollars, I purchased the dosage recommended for small dogs only. Within 10 minutes, they both discontinued to scratch and gnaw at their hot spots.
It has been just on four weeks since the first dose. Now they are both exhibiting severe flea ir...
I had a beautiful black-n-chihuahua. She was 2 years and 6 months. She was very playful & sweet. I loved her very much and so did my family. I gave her the medication on Friday morning. She ate that night. The next morning she was acting like she didn't feel good. I took her out and she just came back in and layed in her dog bed. Normally, she runs around playing. My vet was closed so I made plans to run her to her vet early Monday morning. She started walking around and drinking some water it seemed she was feeling better. Saturday night she d...idn't really eat her dinner. She seemed to be weak. I picked her up and starting checking her. I pet her and put her on her pillow on my desk. It was midnight then. She wagged her little tail. 10 minutes later she threw up everywhere's. I cleaned up everything and started looking for emergency vets close to me. I then went to the bathroom to get dressed when I came back my baby was acting like she was having a seizure then she closed her eyes. I kept petting her and crying. She never responded when I said, her name. I picked her up and she didn't respond. She had died I couldn't believe it. It was terrible I missed my fur-baby so much. She was fine till she took this medication. Natural, is the best way to go.
I, too, liked Revolution, but vets don't carry it around here.
I have used Sentinel Spectrum and it doesn't prevent fleas. My vet added Bravecto (every three months) in addition to kill adult fleas and it doesn't do that job either. One of my Dachshunds is allergic to fleas, so having been prescribed two flea prevention medicines that supposedly work by the flea first biting the animal seems ludicrous to me. I am done paying exorbitant amounts for flea protection that doesn't work. I am going to use products over the counter that repel. I am also sick of paying pest control to kill the fleas in our condo. Our two Dachshunds are house dogs and only go in our bricked in courtyard or on walks with me. There is no reason for this.

Not worth it
After giving this product to my mini doxi for 3 years something has changed. She never had a
Problem til now. Severe hives, depression and some diarrhea. Three days later she is still depressed. This drug is not worth the anxiety for me or for my baby. She will have natural things from now on. Remember this is a DRUG from DRUG companies. And in addition after years on this product such as any drug what does this do to their kidney's and other organs.
My dog hates it, and also got fleas!!!
I so regret buying this and switching from Revolution. My dog hates the so called "treat" and every month I have to think of ways of getting him to eat the darn Thing. What's worse is that my dog also got fleas. This expensive thing does not work. Switching back to Revolution now.
Marketing scam, and they admit it!
The product claims to protect against hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm. But it doesn't. My dog has been taking for 2 years and just had a positive fecal test. I called Verbac and they said it doesn't protect against infection, but it kills worms after the fact, but only for about a day then it's out of their system. When pressed she said it's not 100% and they could need other treatment, but it is enough to market it as a preventative. Unbelievable! I told her I would find something that actually worked and all the woman said was "okay, have a nice day!" The company doesn't back the product, or care about customers. Overall a waste of money.
Easy to Administer & It Works!
If your dog won't take the medication as an entire chew, they are easy to cut into little pieces and then just mix them in with their food. My 10 and a half year old Shih Tzu has taken Sentinel for years. It is effective. Search on the internet for the best price.
