Overview

View our How to manage Heartworms video.

What is Sentinel Spectrum?
Sentinel Spectrum chewables kill the immature form of the heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis). They also treat and control adult hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum), roundworms (ascarids - Toxocara canis and Toxascaris leonina), whipworms (Trichuris vulpis), and tapeworms. In addition, Sentinel Spectrum chewables control flea populations by breaking the flea lifecycle in both the egg and larval stages.

Who is it for?
For dogs and puppies over 6 weeks of age weighing more than 2 pounds. The safety of Sentinel Spectrum has not been evaluated in dogs used for breeding or in nursing females. However, studies have been performed with Milbemycin oxime and Lufenuron alone. Contact your veterinarian before using this product in pregnant, nursing, or breeding animals.

What are the benefits?

  • Protects your dog against heartworm, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms
  • Easy to administer chewable also helps control fleas
  • Palatable beef-flavored chewable taste like treats

How does Sentinel Spectrum work?
Sentinel Spectrum is used in the prevention, control, and treatment of various worm infections. Sentinel Spectrum chewable contain milbemycin oxime and praziquantel, which interferes with the worms nervous system, eliminating the immature stage of the heartworm larvae and the adult stage of hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. Sentinel Spectrum also contains lufenuron, an insect development inhibitor, which breaks the flea life cycle by inhibiting flea egg and larvae development.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
No.

How is it given?
Sentinel Spectrum must be administered monthly, preferably on the same date each month. Drs. Foster and Smith recommends (and our guarantee requires) that Sentinel Spectrum be given year round, although some veterinarians may recommend giving it only during the mosquito season. If given seasonally, the first dose must be given within 30 days of the dog's first exposure to mosquitoes. The last dose must be given within 30 days after the dog's last exposure to mosquitoes. Treatment with fewer than 6 monthly doses after the last exposure to mosquitoes may not provide complete heartworm protection.

To ensure complete absorption, always give Sentinel Spectrum chewables to dogs either with or immediately after a normal meal. Food is essential for proper absorption of of the product into the bloodstream.

Most dogs like the taste of Sentinel Spectrum chewable and will accept the chewable as a treat. The chewables should be administered in a manner that encourages the dog to chew, rather than to swallow without chewing. The Chewables may be broken into pieces and fed to dogs that normally swallow treats whole. Watch the dog closely to be sure the entire dose has been consumed. If not entirely consumed, give another full recommended dose as soon as possible.

What results can I expect?
Sentinel Spectrum will kill the immature heartworms the dog was exposed to in the preceding month. It will treat an intestinal infection with adult hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. It will not kill adult fleas, but will prevent flea eggs, and larvae from maturing.

What form(s) does it come in?
Chewables

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Sentinel Spectrum?
Talk to your veterinarian about the heartworm testing that is recommended before starting your dog on a heartworm prevention program.

Some intestinal parasites, such as hookworms and roundworms can be spread to people. Talk to your veterinarian about other measures you can take to prevent your pet from being infected with intestinal worms, and protecting yourself.

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your dog is taking, and also if your dog has had any reactions to previous medications.

What should I do if I miss a dose?
If a dose is missed and over 30 days have gone by since the last dose, give Sentinel Spectrum immediately and resume the monthly dosing schedule. Tell your veterinarian that a dose was missed.

What is the most important information I should know?
If the interval between doses is longer than one month, the efficacy of the drug is reduced.

Who should not take it?
Do not use in puppies less than 6 weeks of age or less than 2 pounds. Not for use in Collies or other herding breeds over the recommended heartworm prevention dose unless under the strict supervision of a veterinarian. This medication should only be given to the pet for which it was prescribed.

What side effects may be seen when taking Sentinel Spectrum?
Side effects of Sentinel Spectrum are rare but may include vomiting, depression, diarrhea, scratching, drooling, staggering, weakness, and seizures. If you observe any of these side effects, contact your veterinarian immediately.

How is it stored?
Sentinel Spectrum chewables should be stored in a dry place at room temperature, between 59°F and 86°F. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

What should I do if I know of or suspect there has been an overdose?
If you know or suspect your dog has had an overdose, or if you observe vomiting, depression, diarrhea, drooling, staggering, weakness, or seizures, contact your veterinarian immediately.

What should I avoid when giving my pet Sentinel Spectrum?
